NEWS, Women's health
Gynaecologists have once again cautioned women against the use of soap, detergent, and antiseptics amongst others on their vagina. The experts that gathered at the sectorial meeting of the Society of Gynaecology and Obstetrics of Nigeria (SOGON), Lagos sector also warned women against practices like douching.  They stated that washing the vagina with these substances and engaging in practices like douching  washes away  the natural flora in the vagina and gives room for other bacteria to thrive in that environment. Dr. Chukwuemaka Odeigha, a consultant obstetrics and gynaecologist at the Military Hospital, Ikoyi while speaking at the event made it known that women constantly expose themselves to risk factors of vaginitis and that is why it is constantly on the rise and keeps reoccurring.
