The time’s come to scrape the old wife tale about yeast infections being cured by placing garlics in your treasured hoo-ha i.e. vagina. Here are some facts that tell us against the implementation of this tale in real life.
Firstly, let us understand what exactly the term ‘yeast infection’ stands for. It is an excessive growth of yeast in your vajayjay, which leads to irritation, burning and discharge. These are also the most common symptoms, that tell you when to suit up. This dizzying, disproportionate growth of yeast can thrive in anuses, throats, genitals of any sex – basically moist regions. Commonly though, it occurs in the infernal regions of a female. When a person is under stress, took antibiotics or sports an immune system which is weak – you guys are more prone to developing excessive yeast. There is no age, race or health limitation for this persistent infection. About seventy five percent of women all over the world endure an occasional yeast visit. However, for a five misfortunate percent of women, yeast infections grace their pink tacos quite often – three times a year at the minimum.
CURE FOR THE YEASTY GUEST IN YOUR VAGINA:
Home remedies are nothing new. In fact many tiny or small problems, by following these remedies, can be solved. Our parents, grand parents, their parents and so on, all have used such home remedies for curing certain infections. Obviously some of them don’t give us a clear picture, as to whether they will work or no. Yeast infection curing simple-home-remedies fall under this column.
Some of the famous creative home remedies for cooling down the dracarys attack of your vagina – turning yogurt into cube-sized frozen popsicles, probiotic capsules intake and douching with tea tree oil. Capsules may not require to be inserted into your lovehole, but yogurt popsicles do. Very uncommon remedy is the one that involves a garlic. So the myth states that a person suffering from yeast infections must place a garlic in their vagina before they sleep, and let it stay there for the whole night. Remove the now useless garlic next day. Repeat this process for a few nights and boom, your infection has vanished into thin air.
What is really intriguing is the fact that there exist women who actually see through this process. What does your velvet lounge smell and feel like when it’s not playing locker to a garlic anymore? How many business days does it take for you to start feeling desirable again?
PLEASE STOP USING GARLIC AS A SOLUTION:
Theoretically it makes sense that a sulphur compound of garlic called Allicin can solve the yeast problem. It has been tested on some animals in labs and, it does seem like a possible solution. But here is the deal breaker. These experiments were conducted in a lab. “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”, explains Jennifer Gunter, a OB/GYN and author, in her tweets.
She also added in her thread of tweets that women who are willing to try, need to slide a clove into their squeeze box, because it is believed that allicin, has antifungal properties. Although technically not false in theory, garlic has to be cut or crushed for it to produce allicin—and Dr. Gunter advices you against it. “You know why you refrigerate homemade garlic vinaigrette? So any clostridium bacteria laying around on the garlic doesn’t produce botulinum toxin. Right. The vagina is an anaerobic environment, so perfect for clostridium. You’re welcome.”, added Dr. Gunter in her tweets.
“For garlic to even have any medical effect it has to be crushed or chopped, so putting [a] whole clove in your vagina will do nothing except expose your inflamed vagina to the possible soil bacteria that still could be clinging to the garlic,” she previously explained on her website. “It is not easily removed with washing.”
THE REPLACEMENT FOR GARLIC:
Probably, the use of garlic in your vagina will not cause any issues, neither will it solve your problem. But it will increase the itching rates drastically, which is definitely not what you’re looking for. Not only garlic, it is a known fact that anything you insert into your vagina will cause a certain amount of burning and itching. So what to do to get rid off this yeast beast?
Calm your nerves people because there is an alternative for garlic – boric acid. “One remedy with a fair amount of data is boric acid. Boric acid has been around since the 1860s. It’s the same thing you use to get rid of cockroaches. It’s a very effective antifungal, and for some of the more resistant types of yeast infections we see it’s actually the first line therapy”, explained Paul Nyirjesy in an interview with Scientific American. He is an OB/GYN and director of the Drexel Vaginitis Center at Drexel University College of Medicine.
BORIC ACID THE REAL DEAL:
“Boric acid is poisonous if taken by mouth. When I prescribe it, I usually have a compounding pharmacy mix it into 600-milligram capsules that patients use vaginally. There are patients who order gelatin capsules and boric acid, and they make it up themselves. My concern is I’m not sure they’re necessarily getting the correct dose, which is why I like to get it mixed by a pharmacy. Studies have usually looked at a two- or three-week course of treatment”, told Paul, while explaining how to use boric acid for treating this common infection of the vagina.
In conclusion, go see your gyno instead of self-treating. Home remedies might stop curdling your milk, but not rid your body of cancer. Really guys, if something does not make sense logically, scientifically and practically to your brain then it’s best to rely on an expert’s advice yeah? Expert, here refers to people who have acquired government approved degrees and not your pal with no related certification, who claims to be the living proof of such successful remedial experiments.
