If you’ve been leaving the bathroom feeling sore, irritated, itchy, or otherwise uncomfortable, you aren’t alone.
Here’s the awful stuff that toilet paper can do to your vag!na AND what you can do to stop the icky cycle.
1. Microcuts. This is the stuff of nightmares, but when you wipe your vag!na you can create hundreds of microcuts on your lab!a and elsewhere. This is not only painful but can lead to dangerous infections. We’re not saying give up the TP, but try dabbing your lady part instead of wiping to protect yourself from dangerous microcuts.
#2. Puffiness. So many toilet papers out there contains chemicals, fragrances, and dyes. These make for a nice looking and smelling product, but they can wreak havoc on your lady part, irritating the tissue which can lead to serious puffiness and itching.
