A doctor has issued a warning to women against putting garlic up their vaginas.
Gynaecologist Dr. Jennifer Gunter revealed that some women believe garlic with help cure a yeast infection. She has urged ladies not to try any unconventional medical treatments as female genitalia is simply not the right environment for garlic.
The author of ‘The Vagina Bible’ shared a string of tweets explaining why inserting garlic into your vagina is a bad idea.
She said: Why you should not put garlic in your vagina. A thread.
“Garlic contains allicin, in THE LAB it MAY have antifungal (i.e. anti yeast) properties. This is in a lab, not even in mice. Just a dish of cells. Your vagina is not a dish of cells.
“Lots of vaginal garlic aficionados (I SHOULDN’T HAVE TO TWEET THAT IN 2019, BUT HERE WE ARE) recommend inserting a clove. This means they don’t understand for allicin to be released garlic has to be cut or crushed. Sigh. (sic)”
