Doctors urge women to stop putting garlic in their vaginas
A doctor has issued a warning to women about the dangers of inserting garlic cloves into their vagina - yes, really

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T

t's 2019 and we thought that by now it was pretty obvious what you should and shouldn't be sticking in your vagina.

But, apparently that's not the case.

This year alone, doctors have already warned women not to put bath bombs, parsley and cucumber in their lady parts, and now they're back with another important myth-busting message.

And that's not to insert garlic cloves into your vagina ladies, because apparently that's a thing some people are actually doing at the moment.

Gynaecologist Dr. Jennifer Gunter, who wrote The Vagina Bible, has issued a public message to women, explaining exactly why it's a terrible idea to put garlic in your nether regions.

In a thread of tweets, Dr. Gunter revealed that some women believe garlic with help cure a yeast infection - but this is simply not the case.

She wrote: "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.

"Garlic could have bacteria from the soil. Bacteria from the soil can be pathogenic - bad for the body. That's why we clean wounds. If you actually happen to have an inflamed yeasty vagina, that soil bacteria would be more likely to infect."

She goes on to list some of the other potential dangers garlic can cause, including biofilms and pain when it comes in contact with raw tissues in the vagina.


The sexpert also claims that most women (50-70 percent) who self treat for a vaginal yeast infection, never even had one to begin with, so you may be causing yourself unnecessary damage.

While it is proven to ward of vampires it will not cure anything else.

But it may mask anything that smells a tad fishy. Pesto chango.

Also should point out, for those who may be incapable of figuring it out for themselves, that Coca Cola is not a birth control agent; in fact, if you mix it with enough rum, it can have the opposite effect, and that, even in Las Vegas, bell boys are not empowered to marry people.

Women really need to educate themselves on what belongs up there. Not everything that is "natural" is good for you. 

BTW, garlic pills will keep fleas away from your pets if given daily.

Does it work for these or is the Brazilian wax still the best remedy?

garlic with help cure a yeast infection

In a way, but it results in garlic bread. Garlic toast if you leave it in there long enough.

But who wouldn't order some Jack-in-the-Box "Inflamed Yeasty Garlic Hoo-Ha's" if they were on the menu?... Something from their spicy Midnight menu no doubt... likely a garlic sourdough cheesy bread with jalapenos...
