Watch it ladies: Your G-String can hurt your 'lady parts'

Ladies, while thongs may appear very sexy and fitting, research has proven that wearing them can do you more harm than good because they expose you to some health hazards. Here’s a few of them:

1. GENITAL INFLAMMATION

Dr. Thomas Gent of the Association of Gynaecologists once urged females to wear bigger pants to avoid complications of health issues. Yet there is extreme negligence on these facts. Sometimes, ladies complain about certain reactions around their private parts, they don’t remember these warnings. G-string pants have led to a big rise in the number of patients seen reporting genital inflammation. This happens when the G-string’s rope injures the sensitive skin around the genital area – it often occurs especially if they are too tight or made with badly stitched material. In case you’re wondering, genital inflammation is the unusual feeling of hotness you get in your vagina.

2. INTESTINAL/HONEYPOT INFECTIONS

It’s been reported collectively and categorically by some gynaecologists, that thongs can cause health problems in those that wear them regularly. The health issues start from urinary tract and honeypot infections. Thongs irritate and inflame the area around the Bartholdi’s glands, which produce lubricant during intercourse. They asserted that if the ducts that lead to the glands get hemmed, one could also develop a cyst next to one’s honeypot. Simply put, thongs irritate the honeypot and not allowing it enough air space which obviously reveals the harmful nature of the G-string.

Thongs can also cause small tearing or deep cuts which can invite certain unknown infections. Worse, the small string on a thong allows the anus and honeypot to be connected with each other. The thongs as a link will carry bacteria from the rectum straight to the honeypot. Bacteria such as group B streptococcal disease and Escherichia Coli (intestinal infections usually found in humans or animals) can be passed into both the anus and honeypot.

3. YEAST INFECTION

According to research, thongs have the capacity of increasing the chances of getting a yeast infection because of extra moisture built up from the tight fit. A manufacturer of a medication used for the treatment of yeast infections, Vagisil, affirmed that thong ought to be avoided because it causes yeast infections.

4. REACTIONS OF THE SKIN

These are some of the reactions gotten from wearing G-strings: chafed skin, irritation and infection. Chafed skin results when the thong rubs the sensitive areas of the skin. When this happens, it can get infected and become very painful if not quickly noticed. The female core can also become irritated from the friction of the thong. These reports are according to research.

5. OTHER RARE SIDE EFFECTS

Some rare side effect from wearing a thong include; thrush and cystitis, according to Life Script. These are not as common as chafing. Thrush is a fungus infection usually found in the mouth or honeypot. The skin gets red and swollen and white patches appear. Cystitis is a form of inflammation of the bladder. Both conditions have occurred among thong wearers. So ladies, now you know. Whatever seems ‘good’ also has its disadvantages. Please, don’t forget to spread the word; you might just save a life.
