The Executive Director of IPAS-Ghana, a sexual reproductive health organisation, Dr Koma Jehu-Appiah has urged women to refrain from using vagina-tightening medications due to the danger they pose to their reproductive organ.
Vagina-tightening medicines come in the form of pills, food supplements and herbal preparations.
Dr Jehu-Appiah said women must use ordinary water to wash their vagina.
“Avoid inserting herbal drugs in your vagina to keep it tight, if you want your vagina to remain tight, use ordinary clean water to regularly wash there. Herbal drugs and other non-recommended pills can negatively affect your sex organ in the long run, kindly refrain from its usage,’’ he told Kwame Tutu, host of CTV Breakfast Show ‘Ghana Kasa’ on Tuesday, 26 February 2019.
Dr Jehu-Appiah also cautioned men against penis enlargement herbal concoctions as it damages the muscles of the phallus.
He said penis enlargement and vagina-tightening medications do not guarantee a better sex life.
“Both men and women need to thoroughly wash their hands and sex organs before engaging in sexual intercourse. Several sexually transmitted infections are contracted because of the unhygienic ways they keep the sex organ”, Dr Jehu-Appiah stated.
He advised men and women to change their underwear regularly and use undergarments that allow good ventilation around their nether parts.
“Wearing of tight boxer shorts and G-string panties are not good. Ladies who put on G-string panties are likely to spread infections into their vagina”, he added.
