Controversial gynecologist, Dr Jen Gunter has warned women to desist from buying harmful products in a quest to give their vagina an artificial odours.
According to Dr Jen Gunter vaginas are naturally meant to have an odour. She also added that complaining about the natural smell of your partner’s vagina is a “form of abuse”.
In her latest blog newsletter, gynecologist disclosed that she once dumped a boyfriend for complaining about the smell of her genitals. She there by advised women not to feel ashamed of their natural smell, instead, they should dump any man who tries to vagi-shame them.
Gunter siad that using beauty products to make the vagina smell better upsets the vagina’s natural pH balance and leave women at a greater risk of infections like gonorrhoea and even HIV.
As writen in her blog;
“I once dated a guy who insinuated my vagina did not smell right. He was an a** in other ways too. For example, he thought my hair would be better if it were straight. Sadly I took the bait, it wasn’t. He thought I would look better if I dressed a certain way. Again I took the bait. I just felt worse. When it came around to telling me how my vagina could be better it finally clicked that this is a form of control that men often use. Fortunately I am an appropriately confident vagina expert and I had a light bulb moment and dumped his sorry a**.”
“I see the consequences of women doing harmful things they read about online,” Gunter said. earlier in the year when she attacked Paltrow for the unverified health information she shares on her wellness website, Goop. “It breaks my heart when I hear people tell me about all the useless therapies they’ve wasted their money on.”
“I realize this may border on TMI (too much information), but honestly if it happened to me I bet it has happened to other women. The continued proliferation of the what will they insert next, the products on drug store shelves, and the interest in these posts tells me that I’m probably right.”
However, Gunter warned that certain kind of odour might indicate a health problem.
“A vagina takes care of itself. Like a self cleaning oven. The vagina needs no cleaning and the vulva needs very little. However, a strong vaginal odor – for instance, a ‘fishy’ smell – might be abnormal and could indicate a problem.
“If you think you have a medical condition, see a doctor. If your partner insinuates that an artificial smell is preferable to the smell of a normal vagina they are the one who has an issue. Telling women how they can be better is a classic way of tapping into body image issues and honestly in my personal opinion it is a form of abuse.”
