Yes, some company is selling tiny bags of herbs they call them pearls to stuff in the vagina for 3 days to cleanse your uterus or shrink your fibroids or treat bacterial vaginosis or tighten your vagina. They want no real help from you unless there is something wrong and they will tell you there is something wrong by bleeding profusely or itching or cramping badly or producing an odor. There is no such thing as a detox or a cleanse, they are fake terms used by snake oil salespeople to lighten wallets.
All rights reserved. Discharge is one of the most hated words in the English language, so it's kinda ironic that so is panties and they go together. But we are all grown ups here and vaginal discharge is a part of normal life.

Vaginal discharge is a common complaint of women of childbearing age. Bacterial vaginosis, candidiasis and trichomoniasis are the three main causes of vaginitis. Sexual intercourse is believed to be the most common cause of transmission of trichomoniasis, but nonvenereal transmission of trichomonas can occur very rarely.
IT'S something all women get, but we hardly ever talk about it. Knowing how much discharge is normal, what colour it should be and what it should smell like can actually help you spot some serious health problems, including STIs. Discharge is essentially a form of mucus that is produced from the cervix, the opening of the womb.
Burris describes vaginal discharge as fluid released by glands in the vagina and cervix. The fluid carries dead cells and bacteria out of the body, and vaginal discharge helps keep the vagina clean and prevent infection. Burris also says normal vaginal discharge varies in amount and ranges in color from clear to milky, white discharge.
In a blogpost, the company said the pearls could be issued in the same way natural solutions like oranges and lemons can be used to counteract a cold. She also said it would increase the risk of toxic shock syndrome - a potentially fatal syndrome caused by bacteria. The cervix or neck of the womb is designed to only open during ovulation and childbirth.
It's hard to have a healthy relationship with your body if you're not sure how it actually works. When it comes to your vagina, however, there's a chance that you've got a knowledge gap around its anatomy — from how everything slots together to what each part's job is. Why are we so sure?
In an ideal world, everyone born with a vagina would get an owner's manual as soon as they were able to read. Unfortunately, we live a world that instead opts to waste our precious childhoods teaching us about cats and their hats instead of guiding us through the ins and outs of our complex, amazing lady biz. Some of us come across great guides to our vaginas later in life, but many of us don't — and even those of us who devote ourselves to studying the vaginal arts don't necessarily know or understand everything that happens in our undercarriage.
