Warning for the use of 'Pussy Detox Pearls'

Posted on . In Health

MediasdcIt's a hot topic on the internet: woman are being warned about the dangers of the Herbal Womb Detox Pearls. The small herb packages are being sold as a cure for endometriosis, ovarian cysts, fibroids and thrush. However, experts say that it could cause irritation, or worse, a fatal toxic shock syndrome. TSS is a rare, life-threatening complication of certain types of bacterial infections.

TSS is a complication of a bacterial infection that's been linked to tampons. But there are other risk factors. Doctors and tampon manufacturers advise that women change their tampons at least every eight hours. 

The company 'Embrace Pangaea', who sells the packages say that the pearls are designed to cleans the womb by inserting the bags of herbs inside the vagina for 72 hours so the toxins of the vagina will be flushed out. That recommended time is six times as long as you're supposed to wear a tampon. And besides cleaning the womb pearls there are even packages that claim to promote vaginal tightening.

Vagina is self cleaning

For Dr Jen Gunter, a US gynaecologist, reason to write a blog post debunking the company’s claims. She states that these types of products, and the herbs insed the pearls,  have not been tested for vaginal use. She also explains that vagina is self-cleaning, and instead of helping women, the herbs inside the balls could damage the balance of bacteria inside their genitals. "Your uterus isn't tired or depressed or dirty and your vagina has not misplaced its chakra," she started off. They want no real help from you unless there is something wrong and they will tell you there is something wrong by bleeding profusely or itching or cramping badly or producing an odour."

She ends her blog by saying: "Leaving something, anything, inside the female genital for three days is not good because bacteria would grow.”
