New Gadget Set To Play Music Inside The Vagina Of Pregnant Women

Women are often encouraged to play music to their unborn children, as it has been shown to calm them down. However many just place the headsets on their tummy and play the music.
That’s about to change as a new device called Babypod will allow the unborn child to listen to music clearly through the mother’s vagina.
The device designed by the Institut Marquez, a leading international centre in gynaecology, obstetrics and assisted Reproduction in Barcelona, is made to fit inside the vagina where it will fill your womb with the music of your choice.

Tests were done in 2014 on hundreds of pregnant women, comparing unborn babies listening to music in the womb both abdominally (played into the belly from the outside) and internally, through the vagina.
The tests showed that babies who had music played from outside of the womb didn’t generate a response to the music played.

Those who listened to the music after it had been played through the vagina were said to have opened their mouths and stuck out their tongues. This response continued to increase as the pregnancies progressed.
The study also showed that babies were participating in more movement when the music started, only stopping when the music itself has stopped.

This suggests their reaction was in direct response to the music being played internally. The device works with the mothers smart phone, Simply connect The Babypod to your smartphone and insert it (pod) into your vagina.

To clean the device, you just wash it with mild soap and water after each use.

Men Talk About Pubic Hair On Women

Have you ever thought about what men think about hair down south? Do you think the like it clean shaven, mohawk or a little bushy?

Askmen.com did a little survey by asking men what they think about pubic hair and here are the results.

The first question that they were asked was what they found attractive when it comes to what a woman has going on down there. Out of those surveyed 41% stated that they found completely bare attractive and that was it.

38% stated that a well-groomed woman was just fine with them. 15% stated that it didn’t matter to them as long as the woman was comfortable with what she had going on. 5% said that natural was attractive and 1% said they liked “other”. (What “other” meant was not specified).

The men were also asked as to whether they felt that they were under pressure to groom themselves down there because of the way women are pressured to. Almost half, 48%, stated that they liked to be groomed however they didn’t feel any pressure to do it or not do it.

20% of the men stated that they do it because they owe the woman that went to all of that trouble for them. 20% said that they do feel the pressure to be “manscaped”. Finally 5% simply said no.

There is a lot of money to be made when it comes to products that help with the removal of hair down there whether it be for a waxing treatment, creams, or razors. How many people know that you may actually be doing more harm than good by shaving it all off? Ladies, you have hair down there for a reason whether you like it or not. It is a safeguard for all of your lady bits and prevents unknown substances from entering your body.

When you shave it all off you are taking away that safeguard and are more prone to things like yeast infections. Also when you take a razor to your most sensitive area you are causing micro-cuts that open you up to a host of infections. It is a personal preference whether you want to be bare or not, but there are definitely pros to keeping yourself well-groomed instead.

7 Disturbing Facts You Never Knew About Yeast Infections

Between the itching, burning, and discharge, yeast infections can be a total pain in the…well, vagina. But did you know they’re not just a down-there problem? According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there are more than 20 different species of candida yeasts on and in your body (like, right now) that can cause a yeast infection—and not necessarily below the belt. Want to protect yourself? Here are seven more icky factoids you should know:

1. They’re Not the Most Common Vaginal Infection
That honor goes to bacterial vaginosis (BV), an infection that’s caused by an overgrowth of bacteria in the vagina. Much like a yeast infection, BV festers when the vagina’s pH levels are out-of-whack—but unfortunately, OTC treatments aren’t available. Because it’s caused by bacteria and not yeast, attempting to use yeast infection meds to combat BV can make your symptoms worse (cue the sad trombone). If you self-treat thinking it’s a yeast infection but your symptoms stick around, check in with your gyno to find out what’s what, says Antonio Pizarro, M.D., a board-certified gynecologist in Shreveport, Louisiana.

2. You Can Become Resistant to Over-the-Counter Treatments
Speaking of which, two out of three women who buy yeast infection meds don’t really have a yeast infection, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Over time, your body can become resistant to the treatment, making it that much harder to fight a legit yeast infection in the future. If you self-treat and don’t see results within a few days or your symptoms return within a month, it’s either a sign you’re resisting the meds—or that you’re treating the wrong condition, says Pizarro. It’s important to visit your gyno in either scenario so you can be treated properly.

3. You Can Get One in Your Mouth
It’s called thrush, and it’s just as nasty as it sounds. The yeast overgrowth causes cottage cheese-like lesions that can take over your mouth—tongue, cheeks, and gums—not to mention mess with your esophagus and make it über painful to swallow. Luckily, says Pizarro, thrush can be treated with a prescription of anti-fungal lozenges called troches. (Phew.)

4. They Can Be Caused By Your Poop
We wish we were kidding. Candida organisms set up shop in the rectum, so when you poop, it’s possible for the organisms to migrate to the vagina, says Jason James, M.D., a board-certified ob-gyn in Miami. There’s no foolproof way to prevent this, but “decreasing candida in the rectum might be accomplished by eating probiotics, and decreasing transmission might be achieved by good hygiene—showers preferably over baths,” says James. You should also avoid having vaginal sex immediately after anal sex to cut back on your chances of yeast moving from your rectum to your vagina, he adds.

5. Guys Can Get Them, Too
If a dude has unprotected sex with a woman and she has a yeast infection, he may end up with one, too. Symptoms can include itching, burning, redness, and a rash on the penis, says James. Most can be treated with an OTC yeast infection treatment (and it’s best you both be treated to avoid reinfecting each other). There may not be instructions for dudes on the box, so James recommends he apply the cream directly to the infected area twice daily for five to seven days.

6. They Can Be a Sign of Diabetes
This is not a drill: According to the Mayo Clinic, women whose blood sugar levels are out-of-whack are more likely to develop yeast infections. When your blood glucose level is high, the excess sugar increases the likelihood of yeast growth—and repeat infections. Pizarro recommends women with three or more yeast infections a year make an appointment to rule out diabetes or other serious conditions.

7. Pasta-Lovers Are More at Risk
Candida is naturally found in the digestive tract, but how much you have depends on your noshing habits. A 2013 study published in the journal PLOS One found people who ate oodles of carbs were more susceptible to yeast infections than people who munched on proteins, amino acids, and fatty acids. In fact, the participants’ candida levels increased immediately after eating carbs. (Don’t say we didn’t warn you.)

You Won’t Believe What Toni Braxton’s Gynecologist Told Her To Do

Toni Braxton’s gynecologist gave a very interesting recommendation to the singer recently: Use it or lose it.

“My gynecologist told me, ‘Toni, you need to start using your vagina more,'” the 47-year-old singer told the ladies of “The View” earlier this week.

Yep, she went there. On Wednesday, Braxton stopped by HuffPost Live and gave some backstory on the anecdote.

“I said that out loud, didn’t I?” she said, laughing. “I need to start dating. I’ve been divorced almost two years and I haven’t really meant anyone I’ve liked yet, so I haven’t really been out there.”

Braxton finalized her divorce from Keri Lewis in 2013, after 12 years of marriage and two sons. Part of the reason she’s remained single since then? Guys just aren’t stepping up.

“You know, interestingly [guys] really don’t approach me,” Braxton told HuffPost Live’s Nancy Redd. “They’ll say ‘hi,’ or ‘I love your work’ or ‘I’d love to get together some time’ but they never really follow it through.”

Woman sneaks a gun to jail through her vagina

A woman recently managed to sneak a gun past no less than four prison guards with an unusual and highly dangerous technique.

As reported by the Metro, despite the fact that the prison is heavily guarded  Josephine McAllister, 34, allegedly smuggled the handgun into the metropolitan detention centre.

Ms McAillister had told confused officers that she had the gun concealed in her waistband during her arrest for possession of stolen credit cards and resisting arrest in December, but didn’t tell the police for fear of bringing more charges on herself.

She also claimed she managed to keep hiding the gun in her waistband the entire time she was being processed by prison officers, despite being searched many times.

Prison staff were alerted to the incident after another inmate found the gun in a bin, leading them to believe it was concealed in her genitals.

Metro reports that an  Officer called Simon Drobik said: ‘We can only be so thorough, and that area is out of the question. We cannot search a body cavity.’

 

 

Medical error infested woman’s vagina with maggots

A viral video of doctors removing maggots from a woman’s vagina is doing the rounds, claiming the maggots were the result of an STD.
According to 360knobs.com the maggots were actually the result of a medical error. The woman had given birth in an Indian government hospital – but they had forgotten the gauze used to stop the bleeding from the birth in her body.

Ten days after the 22-year-old mom gave birth, she noticed the flesh eating maggots crawling down her legs. Her husband then rushed her to hospital.

The doctors removed the gauze and the maggots, and she is now apparently well.

“The reason we did not file a complaint of medical negligence is because we are from a different state and I don’t even know any language other than Oriya. My husband does not have enough time and resources to fight the case,” she told reporters.

 

How To Keep Your Womanhood Clean

Most women are taught early on to cleanse daily with strong soap or use “feminine hygiene” sprays, but this can actually do more harm than good. Knowing the right way to stay clean, choosing foods that will boost your health, and even exercising your vagina are all ways you can keep your vagina in tip top shape. Read on to learn more about how to have a healthy vagina.

Wash With Hot Water Only.
It may seem counterintuitive, but washing your vagina with soap, whether its bar soap or liquid, isn’t the best way to keep clean. The vagina actually stays quite clean on its own without the help of outside cleansers. Vagina has a pH level that needs to be maintained within a certain range – 3.5 and 4.5, to be specific – in order to prevent the growth of unhealthy bacteria and facilitate the growth of good bacteria. Using harsh cleansers can upset the balance, leading to infection, irritation, and even bad smells.

Wear Cotton Underwear.
Cotton underwear dries quickly and allows air to flow freely through the fabric. This prevents the development of damp conditions that promote the growth of yeast and unhealthy bacteria that might lead to an infection. Underwear made from synthetic fabrics, silk, lace, or other materials doesn’t breathe as well.

Don’t Use Douches or Feminine Sprays.
Douching with chemicals that are supposed to make your vagina smell like a field of flowers actually ends up having quite the opposite effect. They wash out all the healthy bacteria that helps your vagina stay clean and infection-free. The chemicals left behind by douches can cause irritation and even burning, and the same goes for feminine sprays. If you keep your vagina healthy using other methods, there will be no need to try to make it smell different.

Have Good Hygiene During Your Period.
Many women experience an increased rate of vaginal infections when they’re menstruating, since having blood in the vagina changes its pH and throws things out of balance. To stay healthy during your period, practice the following habits.

Change your tampon frequently.
Tampons absorb menstrual blood, and if you leave them in too long, you’re keeping the blood in your vagina where it can change your pH. Make sure you change your tampon every few hours to keep this from happening. Don’t use pads or panty liners for longer than necessary. Wearing pads and panty liners all month long or after your period is over can lead to skin irritation.

Wipe From Front to Back.
It’s important to wipe from front to back, rather than the reverse, to keep fecal matter from entering your vagina and causing an infection. Use plain, unscented toilet paper to wipe. Avoid using wet wipes or any other product that contains perfumes and chemicals.

 

 

New medical miracle found in vagina

Researchers have discovered a new antibiotic, made by the bacteria that live in the vagina.

According to a news report on Nature, the drug, lactocillin, hints at the untapped medical potential of this microbial landscape.

Michael Fischbach led a team to figure out how our microbiomes (the bacteria living in our bodies) impact our health, research which proceeded to reveal thousands of molecules that could act as drugs.

One example of these was a thiopeptide antibiotic produced by a bacteria that normally lives in the vagina.

According to the researchers while they couldn’t prove it produced the antibiotic while in the body, it did when they grew it in lab conditions.

The researchers found that the drug could kill the same types of bacteria as other thiopeptides — for instance, Staphylococcus aureus, which can cause skin infections, Nature reported.
