How safe are vaginal tightening pills and gels?

Vaginal tightening pills, creams, and gels are composed of chemicals. They put the female’s intimate parts at risk of irritation, swelling, allergic reactions, and discomfort. If the chemicals change the vagina’s natural pH balance, the female might develop infections such as Bacterial Vaginosis or a Yeast Infection. Vaginal tightening products also increase the risk of hormonal disruption. Plus, if the female has an STD or STI, vaginal tightening creams, gels or pills generally cover up the symptoms which makes it difficult to be detected or observe symptoms. STDs can even be passed on to the partner if left untreated.

The vagina is very gentle and needs to be treated with care. It’s the most sensitive part of a female’s body. The vagina loses its stiffness over time. Many females wonder on how to tighten it. Common reasons include urinary incontinence, sexual pleasure, or physical changes after birth. It is possible to get any vagina-tightening pills, creams, and gel in the market but they are not safe! They can lead to serious side effects. Be careful and consult your gynecologist before trying any such products. Some serious side effects of vaginal tightening products are mentioned below:

  1. Irritation

Vagina-tightening pills, creams, and gels are loaded with chemicals, not just in a small quantity, lots of them. They even claim to have herbal and natural products or extracts as an ingredient. But it is all a part of the scam. There are some vaginal products that contain Manjakani. Manjakani is traditionally used in ancient medicines to tighten the vaginal muscles after childbirth. But even if the vaginal tightening products brag about having this natural ingredient, you must realize there still will be loads of chemicals along with them. The chemicals can irritate the vagina and cause discomfort, both in and around the vagina. It can even make normal daily habits such as waling, urinating or even sitting down painful.

  1. Allergic Reaction

Apart from pain, swelling or redness, there can even be an allergic reaction down there! A girl can imagine how bad that could be. A female would not even realize this fact and might be allergic to one of the ingredients of such products. If such a thing happens, the female might develop symptoms of an allergic reaction such as rashes, redness, and itching, irritation, redness, etc. Such symptoms are worse when it happens in the vaginal area. An allergic reaction caused there can be severely uncomfortable and painful. If suspected of such an allergic reaction, immediately take an antihistamine and consult your gynecologist.

  1. Infection

Douching and vaginal products are linked to a higher risk of bringing infections such as Bacterial Vaginosis or BV and Yeast Infection. Any time of vaginal tightening products won’t be any better or provide any benefit. They are just a cocktail of chemicals and it is a big NO to use such a product for the intimate areas. Applying something in or on the vagina puts the vaginal pH balance at risk. It can also interrupt the healthy bacterial balance which is responsible for keeping the vagina healthy. If the pH balance or natural bacterial balance of the vaginal area is lost, there is a huge risk to develop infections such as Bacterial Vaginosis or BV and Yeast Infection.

  1. Disrupted Hormones

Vaginal tightening products can readily disrupt the endocrine system of the female. This includes the ovaries, thyroid, and pituitary glands. These glands are responsible for hormone secretion. If they are disrupted or damaged, the hormones might be in danger.

  1. STD Complications

Feminine products can cover up the symptoms of sexually transmitted diseases. And as the vaginal tightening creams are mostly unscented, it is almost impossible to sense the odor of an STD. As a result, the female might have one an active STD and not even know about it. This delays diagnosis and treatment. If not treated in time, an ongoing STD can cause more damage to the vagina and overall health. Also, if the female has sexual intercourse with a person, there is a high risk of transmission of the disease.
