Toothpaste: Toothpaste is used to fight decay causing bacteria in your mouth, there are so many approved and intended use for your vagina, talk to your gyn md.

No: Toothpaste is formulated to use in the oral cavity, and nowhere else. Think of it this way, would you use a vaginal cream in your mouth? Please speak to your GP or an OBGyn about proper vaginal hygiene.

Some are foolish: No need to use an abrasive product in a sensitive area. Toothpaste says what it is intended for... Tooth paste. You don't use shampoo to clean your teeth, and neither do you use chlorox as one other poster asked. Other than trying to save money by using one product for multiple purposes, i can't think of a reason you would want to do that.

Save it for ur teeth: I am unaware of any reason one might want to use toothpaste in that region of the body, but the abrasive nature of the toothpaste and other ingredients may irritate those tissues substantially. For whatever your reasoning, use a product formulated for that reason.
