Women Are Putting TOXIC GAS In Their Vaginas​​ — Here's Why That's A BAD Idea

I didn't think it would need to be said, but ...

It feels like I've said this before. Like I've written these exact words. Like we've been here — in this same place — before. 

Yet, I'm going to give it to you one more time: ladies, stop f*cking with your vagina. Stop using "magic" wands, lipsticks, and whatever else they're selling on the lightweight black market (not really, but should be considered so) to perfect your vagina.

Because one. It's dangerous and can be harmful. And, two: Hasn't anyone ever told you that perfection simply does not exist? Apparently not, or there wouldn't be a need for this PSA — there wouldn't be women pumping "toxic gas" into their vaginas.

And really it's just all pretty stupid. But, here it goes: The experimental practice of ozone therapy for the vagina is now being promoted, according to the Independent, to "benefit pelvic and labia pain, while also aiding yeast, bacterial, and viral infections."

However, there hasn't been definitive proof that these are true results of the treatment, and there hasn't even been a backing from the Food and Drug Administration regarding this practice. In fact, the FDA considers ozone to be "toxic gas with no known useful medical application."

In the past, there have been claims that this was a treatment for AIDS as well as for cancer. But there was no evidence in either case that indicated it was an effective form of treatment.

 rofessor Martin Dyer, a cancer specialist at the University of Leicester told the Independent:

"Ozone is one of the most powerful oxidizing agents known to man, and people have been looking to exploit this very powerful antioxidant action right since its discovery. But it's never amounted to anything.” 

The publication even made note of this fact: "In 1991, the FDA went as far as prosecuting and sending several people presenting themselves as medical doctors selling ozone therapy to jail."

I could go on and on giving you the run down on why you shouldn't be trying experimental treatments on your vagina, not even for the most minor things, but I really shouldn't have to. It's been said so many times before: don't put ANYTHING in your vagina — not soap, not firecrackers, or gas — just stick with fingers, sex toys, and penis or tongue and leave the rest be. 

We spoke Dr. Jason Little, the concierge medical physician and chairman of family medicine at Orlando Regional Medical Center, in order to give you a more vivid idea of what dangers this treatment presents, and here's what he had to say: 

"Just from what I logically know, I think what it’s being ascribed to treat viruses [or] bacterial and fungal infection. But this doesn't make sense, because any therapy or treatment that has the potential to change the vaginal pH or 'atmosphere' has the potential also to create an infection."

I get that society has given us Band-aids to fix everything it tells us is wrong with us or even guides us to fix things that aren't really broken.

But this has absolutely gone too far with all the vagina "fixes" readily available to gullible consumers now.

Please learn the difference between actual home remedies and scams.
