Can i crush the garlic and then insert it into the vagina for and infection?

Not a good idea: It's easier and better to go to the doctor, and have the infection identified, to know whether it's yeast or bacterial. So you know how to take care of the infection. Using garlic on any inflamed area that has potential infection maybe cause further irritation, and inflammation of the mucous membranes. ...Read more

I've let my dog lick my vagina before. (I tried pushing her away) I washed after.. Can my dog or I get an infection?

I've let my dog lick my vagina before. (I tried pushing her away) I washed after.. Can my dog or I get an infection?

Not recommended: Mucous membranes don't have a protective (tough) layer of skin over them (such as a hand). The genital tract qualifies as a mucous membrane because it's moist. As such, it's somewhat easier for germs to pass across from the outside world. You don't know what your dog might have licked before it came near you. You did the right thing which is to wash afterwards. Luckily, overall your risks are low ...Read more

Are sea sponge tampons safe? If I get baby bits of sea sponge stuck in my vagina, can I get an infection of any kind?

Are sea sponge tampons safe? If I get baby bits of sea sponge stuck in my vagina, can I get an infection of any kind?

I don't trust them.: There has been some question of the cleanliness or safety of sea sponges. They were banned as menstrual products in 1981 after the university of iowa found sand, grit, bacteria, and other pollutants within sea sponges. And there has been at least one case of toxic shock syndrome associated with sea sponges. ...Read more

Discharge from my vagina has a strong odor but has for many years so i don't think it is an infection, what could it be/how i can fix it

Discharge from my vagina has a strong odor but has for many years so i don't think it is an infection, what could it be/how i can fix it

Bacterial vaginosis?: The main cause of strong vaginal odor, often with discharge, is bacterial vaginosis, an overgrowth of mostly normal bacteria. Often it smells "fishy" and often is especially strong after unprotected sex. BV isn't an STD, but the STD trichomonas causes the same symptoms, and other STDs (gonorrhea, chlamydia) are more common in women with BV. Treatment with metronidazole usually is effective. ...Read more
