Why Tight Panties, Jeans, Are Not Good For Women— Expert

A Clinical Microbiologist, Tony Mbume, on Sunday, explained to women the dangers of putting on tight jeans, synthetic panties and leggings.

According to him, the clothings most Nigerian females wear end up causing vaginal infections.

Dr. Mbume, who works with CIAGIN Medical Laboratory, Oke-Afa, Isolo, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos that the fashion women wear end up making the vagina to ‘overheat’, which could disrupt its ecosystem.

He further explained that underwears made of latex, nylon or polyester and synthetic materials could trap moisture and warmth, making the vagina vulnerable to infections.

“Synthetic panties can cause the vagina area to overheat and this can sometimes cause burning sores, itching or irritate the sensitive skin, as well as causing blisters.

“The friction caused by walking in tight pants and jeans can irritate the skin, resulting in the formation of blisters,’’ he said.

Dr. Mbume said that vaginal burning and itching are usually accompanied by discharge and bad odour.

He further said that such infections could be dangerous if left untreated, as they might lead to infertility due to damage of the reproductive organs.

He therefore advised women to “Use cotton menstrual pads too. Cotton absorbs excess moisture and removes buildup heat from the area. It is the only material that can become stronger when wet and is easily sterilized after use.

“Avoid sleeping with pants at night, to keep the vagina area dry throughout the night,’’ he said.

Dr. Mbume said the vagina should be protected from any form of diseases, as it is a sacred and a highly respected organ of God’s creation.
