A doctor has urged women to break up with any partners who criticize their vagina after sharing her own personal experience. Dr Jen Gunter spoke out after commenting on recent reports that women have been using Vicks VapoRub to cleanse their vaginas.
Writing on her blog, the Canadian gynaecologist slammed the ridiculous trend before revealing that she had previously broken up with a man who had criticized her privates.
She said: “For what I am sure is the 100th time the vagina needs no cleaning and the vulva needs very little”. The vagina discharge contains good bacteria that help fight against vaginal infections. The discharge come with its own odor which is normal for as long as the vagina is cleaned at least twice daily. Search the internet for more tips on vulva care. Using cosmetic products such as “vaginal tightening creams” should be avoided as that could lead to vaginal infections like candidiasis, cervical cancer, bacteria vaginosis etc.
Dr Jen then shared a very personal story about the time she had ditched a man who made disparaging comments about her vagina. She writes: “I once dated a guy who insinuated my vagina did not smell right. He was an ass in other ways too, but I just didn’t see it until he impugned my vagina. For example, he though (sic) my hair would be better if it were straight. Sadly I took the bait, it wasn’t. He thought I would look better if I dressed a certain way.
Fortunately I am an appropriately confident vagina expert and I had a light bulb moment and dumped his sorry ass. I realize this may border on TMI [Too Much Information], but honestly if it happened to me I bet it has happened to other women.
If you think you have a medical condition, see a doctor. If your partner insinuates that an artificial smell is preferable to the smell of a normal vagina they are the one who has an issue.
