A new trend for vaginas has quietly swept through the US, with young women especially entranced by it. Vaginal glitter bombs have increased in popularity so much this year, that doctors had to give out an official warning against the usage of it.
‘Just because something is safe for your lips, for example glitter lip gloss, doesn’t mean it is safe for the vagina,‘ Dr Gunter warns readers on her blog. She also warns that for right now, there’s no way to make glitter safe enough to use in a vagina.
The Daily Mail reports:
The website says Passion Dust is made of gelatin capsules, starch based edible glitter, acacia (gum arabic) powder, Zea Mays starch, and vegetable stearate.
Dr Gunter warns this could cause a nasty inflammatory vaginal discharge and/or an inflammatory mass in the vaginal wall.
Most importantly, edible glitter contains sugar.
‘Depositing sugar in the vagina lets the bad bacteria go wild,’ she writes.
By throwing off the delicate balance of your vagina’s bacteria, it could also increase your risk of catching a sexually-transmitted disease, she warns.
Dr. Gunter has taken to the internet before to warn women about their vaginal health. Thanks to failing health classes in school, and ridiculous internet trends, Gunter said that this isn’t the weirdest trend she’s seen.
