Why Your Vagina Is Causing Stains On Your Undies
So, you so much admire this underwear with a beautiful colour and lovely designs.
You like the texture, it fits into your size, and when you asked for the price, it's just worth the buy.
There you go into your handbag, brought out your purse, took some money or debit card, and pay for it, and right there in your mind, you can’t wait to rock it.
You woke up the next morning, and after bathe, you went straight to your new buy and it fits perfectly on you.
After the day’s schedule, you’re back home, took it off to wash and there it was, that stain that left you unhappy.
Your vagina could totally be bleaching your underwear. That’s because the discharge the vagina produces is acidic, which leads to those orange or white stains on your panties.
Dr Kim Sonntag, an obstetrician and gynaecologist, explains: “The vagina naturally has an acidic environment, with a low pH. Lactobacilli, good bacteria found in the vagina, help to keep the pH at the right level so that one is not prone to infections".
So, yes, your vagina is bleaching your underwear – but for a very good reason
Should you be bothered?
Not at all, says Sonntag.
“If the discharge is not offensive in smell and not an abnormal colour (yellow, green, brown), then this is part of your vagina cleansing itself,” she explains.
Unless your discharge has an abnormal smell or colour, your vagina is doing her thing by self-cleaning and keeping you healthy.
It’s totally normal and happens to way more women than you think. As frustrating (and expensive) it might be to regularly replace bleached underwear, try to look at those stains as little badges of honour for having a healthy vagina that’s doing what it needs to do.
Should you now stop wearing (nice) undies?
Well, the best you can do is wear pantyliners to prevent discolouration.
Or try wearing lighter coloured underwear so the stains are less noticeable.
But make sure you have something on, let's avoid troubles. Lol
