Females hygiene products cause lethal infections

AIMAN INAM

GENEVA: Almost all ladies tend to use different hygiene products. Females hygiene products cause lethal infections. However, use of some products (intimate washes) on a daily basis is considered harmful, claims a latest study.

Savants from the University of Guelph in Ontario, Canada are of the view that use of feminine hygiene products could potentially trigger vaginal infections particularly Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs) and Sexually Transmitted Infections (STDs).

The study comprised on some 1,435 mature ladies, who tend to use creams, that sooth irritation, moisturizers and wet wipes etc.

Certain products were found to be the major cause of mounting yeast infections, bacterial infection, UTIs and STDs.

Terming that (using female hygiene products) an unhealthful approach, the study senior investigator Kieran O’Doherty maintained that these products harbor such ingredients that could potentially mess with the natural balance of vaginal microbiomes, resulting into plummeting good microbes, which are necessary to contain infections.

As a matter of fact, women might mount innumerable disorders such as pelvic inflammatory disease, fertility chaos, cervical cancer, bacterial vaginosis, and the deadly STDs.

Journal BMC Women’s Health has reported the up shots.
