The side effects of the G-Strings

20 April 2012, 16:37 David Mulahi

 The female body is not meant to have a string running across and connecting the anus with the genital area. B. Streptococcal disease and e.coli are introduced to the open vaginal area and can cause an infection. The back and forth movement can cause this to happen over and over again.

Your faeces and anus oils are absorbed into the string running through the anus area and you run the risk of smelling like "ass" all day. If you smell it, don't look at others, it's most likely you. Is this the price you want to pay to look sexy and have no panty lines too?

Recurrent vaginal infections are more common in thong wearers. The string part can inflame the skin, leading to thrush which is a yeast infection of the skin that thrives in warm, moist environments. Another concern is bacteria can travel along that little string from the rectum to the vaginal area.

Everyone knows that you wipe from front to back, not the other way around, so wearing thong underwear defeats that purpose. The chafing that occurs can negatively impact the whole genital area and leave the area more susceptible to infections.

Bladder infections and urinary tract infections are more common in thong wearers, too. Vaginosis: a vaginal discharge of any color; fishy odor; itching; swelling of the vagina; stomach cramps.

A cyst can develop next to the vagina from the constant rubbing. The infections can only be treated with antibiotics. If you ignore the symptoms, you run the risk of getting pelvic inflammatory disease or a kidney infection.so please ladies watch out.
