1 What do we actually have when we say toilet infection?
2 Why cant i get infection from the toilet?
3 How can you prevent the things we call toilet infection, that is not toilet infection?
The most common complaints when we hear ” Toilet infection” are.
These are signs of an Inflamed Vagina
Easily called Vaginitis (Inflammation of the Vagina).
A variety of things, both infectious and not can cause Vaginitis.
Like in the earlier article, about allowing your “Vagina to Vagine” and to leave it alone, we know that the female organ has its own environment!. It is a self cleansing garden.
It has its own microorganisms that balance the PH Levels and prevent other infectious organisms from taking a hold.
So anything that messes with the environment of the female external genitalia, could cause inflammation and present with the symptoms
Sexually transmitted infections,
Other Uncommon Causes include.
Contraceptive Use,(esp IUD)
Change in Sexual partners
These are all “things thats could mess with the Environment of the Vagina and cause “Symptoms” .
Now , why can’t you get infections from the toilet.?
Microorganisms are unable to survive long after leaving the body and would have to be transferred into the body not just the Skin.
So except you have a wound on your thigh/ buttocks and you have low immunity, or you go around humping public toilet seats,
The chances of you getting an Infection from the toilet seat , is non-existent.
However, can you get a bug from the toilet, yes.. the same way you can get from the bus, or the office.
Which is why it is advised you wash your hands before and after using the toilet.
To prevent messing with the Vaginal environment,
Wear Clean and Dry, preferably Cotton underwear,
Wipe from front to back,
Dont wear tampons/ pads for too long
Abstain, Be Faithful, or Have SAFE SEX!
Dont Douche or Spray or Bake or put anything inside your body.
Pat down the “down there ” with a clean towel after bath.
Avoid tight fitting jeans / panty hose
Dont take drugs, especially antibiotics, except prescribed by your doctor.
Observe proper hygiene
And mummy said you should STOP BLAMING THE TOILET.
