The lead Obstetrician and Gynaecologist at the Irrua Specialist Teaching Hospital, Edo State, Dr. Joseph Okoeguale, has warned women against inserting ice cream into their vagina and injecting seasoning cubes into their buttocks.
Dr. Okoeguale also warned against inserting potash alum and other chemicals into the vagina, noting that those engaging in such practices are putting their health at risk.
Women who indulge in the practice of putting different substances in their vagina claim that such practice boosts sexual pleasure and fertility.
They also believe that injecting certain substances in their buttocks can equally help increase their buttocks size.
However, the expert says there is no scientific proof supporting their claims.
Speaking in recent interview, Dr. Okoeguale warns that these methods have the potentials to cause ulcers and infections in the genitals.
Okoeguale, who is also the Deputy Director, Institute of Viral Haemorrhagic Fever and Emergent Pathogens at ISTH, said his unit has admitted and treated many women with severe burns and ulcers in their genitals, after using chemicals for the genitals.
“Ice-cream is full of sugary and carbohydrate substances and it may encourage the growth of microorganisms within the vagina. This may increase vaginal discharges and even bacterial growth because some of them may become contaminated and they introduce it into the vagina.
“Some of them introduce ice cream during sexual intercourse; the man may pour ice cream into his mouth and pour it into the woman’s vagina. So, the microorganism within the mouth – mixed with saliva and whatever thing is in the mouth – will be poured into the vagina, and a lot can happen from there.
“I don’t think injecting seasoning cubes into the buttocks does anything. It has no benefit really; I don’t understand the rationale behind that.
“Why would anyone do that? There will be complications for such action,” he said.
