Gynecologist explains why garlic shouldn’t go in vaginas

The rise in pseudoscience doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon, as a gynecologist just had to explain why garlic shouldn’t go in vaginas in a now-viral Twitter thread.

” Lots of vaginal garlic aficionadoes( I SHOULDN’T HAVE TO TWEET THAT IN 2019, BUT HERE WE ARE) recommend inserting a cleave ,” Dr. Jennifer Gunter tweeted.

Gunter posted her eight-part thread on Tuesday, and it has since then amassed thousands of retweets and likes.

Apparently, there are people out there who are putting garlic in their vaginas to cure yeast infections. But Gunter wants to set the record straight: Garlic in vaginas is a big no-no.

Gunter started out the thread by explaining how garlic releases a compound called allicin when crushed. She has been stressed that the compound may have anti-yeast properties in a petri-dish in a lab-but that doesn’t mean those anti-yeast properties will carry over to your vagina.
