Women using intimate hygiene soap and gel, prone to infections
 A new study by the University of California in Los Angeles, proved that women use soaps and ordinary shower gels for intravaginal sexual hygiene increases the risk of infection with sexually transmitted diseases.

In the course of scientific experiments it was proved that soap, as well as lubricants, damage the sensitive tissues of the genitals, while increasing the risk of contracting herpes, chlamydia and HIV.

Members of the team doctor Dr. Brown surveyed 141 women in Los Angeles on the use of cosmetic products for personal hygiene, and conducted laboratory tests for vaginal infections, nalichistvuet from respondents. It turned out that 66% of women used lubricants and cleaning agents vaginally.

The most widely-used means of conventional pharmaceutical lubricants appeared - they were used 70% of women, while 17% used Vaseline (petroleum jelly), and 13% - various oils.

Test results showed that women who used internally products not intended for such use, for example, vaseline and oil, were more vulnerable to the disease thrush and bacterial infections.   For example, 40% of women using Vaseline as lubricant, suffering from bacterial vaginosis. For comparison, a group of women who did not use petroleum jelly thus susceptible to the disease was only 18%.

44% of women admitted that he used to moisten the oil appeared carriers of the fungus Candida, causing thrush. A group of women who did not use oils thus carriers of the fungus were only 5%.

The researchers also suggest that the risk of contracting sexually transmitted diseases is enhanced by the use of cosmetic products that damage the natural pH and acidity (soap, shower gel), which is a favorable factor for the development of pathogenic micro-organisms. Doctors recommend that women do not use any cleaners or intravaginal hygiene, because it violates the natural bacterial balance and does not bring any good woman.
