WOMEN have been warned to never put yoghurt inside their vaginas, as the “home remedy” can do more harm than good.
Dr Philippa Kaye appeared on This Morning and told hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Scofield items that shouldn’t be put inside vaginas.
Dr Philippa talked through different products that women buy or insert to “help” down there, and warned that many should be avoided.
She said that it is never a good idea for women to put food in or around their vulva and said it can carry high risks.
She explained: "The first one people might have heard of is a brush to help remove menstrual blood and other debris, they are about the size of a toothbrush."
A shocked Holly asked: "This is meant to go inside the vagina and clean round?"
Dr Philippa replied: "Inside during your period to help sweep everything out… you do not need to do this your, body will naturally do this on its own, it cleans itself."
Host Phillip then asked what women should not do to their vagina, and enquired if it is "pretty much everything".
Dr Philippa said: "It could do you harm, and that also includes the home remedies that a lot of people might have heard of.
"Things like yoghurt on tampons for thrush, or garlic because it has some antibacterial properties.
"If you put food inside your vagina it is going to macerate and rot, and it is going to increase your risk of infection."
Previously, women were warned to not put ice lollies in vaginas to cool down in heatwaves.
And there are apparently five different types of vagina… so are you a Ms Barbie or Ms Puffs?
