Why is wearing thongs bad for you?
Because thongs are made predominantly from synthetic fabrics, poorly permeable to moisture and air, with prolonged wearing, especially in hot and humid weather, this underwear creates a favorable environment for the breeding of various bacteria and yeast. This can lead to the development of inflammation, fungal diseases (candidiasis), bacterial vaginosis. Very often the cause of recurrent yeast infections be a Thong – is to abandon wearing them, and microflora quickly returns to normal.
Experts note that in emergency situations (a fall, car accident) women dressed in thongs often run the risk of injury of the external genitalia.
The main danger, ironically, lies in a thin strip of tissue, located between the buttocks. Thanks to her, the bacteria from the anus can easily get on the mucous membrane of the vagina and the urethra. During the movement of the fabric rubbing the skin, on irritated skin microcracks through which the infection enters the bloodstream.
It is especially dangerous to wear a Thong, not suitable for the size – too narrow linen constantly squeezes and traumatizes the skin.
How to minimize the damage?
Do not give up wearing a Thong at all, but to wear them every day is not necessary. In the heat it is better to choose clothes made of natural materials. During periods of antibiotics when the natural microflora of the vagina can be broken, and during menstruation it is also better to go for linen classic models. Do not wear thongs and at night.
Wearing panties-a Thong in cold weather contraindicated – in the cold underwear should serve the same protection from hypothermia, as the rest of the clothes.
Pick the underwear that fits you in size – too small panties are not only ugly to run into a body, forming folds, but will also create unnecessary pressure on the most tender areas of the body.
If you choose a swimsuit with Thong, try not to stay in it for a long time, especially after bathing – long stay in a wet bathing suit will likely trigger a bladder infection.
Do not skimp on underwear – do not buy beautiful but cheap g-string made of synthetic fabrics. At least the panties should be insert of natural material.
If you wear synthetic panties, be sure to use gaskets and often change them (every 2-4 hours) – pads will absorb excess moisture, and timely change will not allow bacteria to multiply.
