Akosua Davis, a sex therapist, has urged women to Stop repeating unstained panties during menstruation because they are not discolored.
She noticed that because many women use pads at this time, some of them tend to repeat the panties after removing the pad, discovering that there was no bloodstain leaking through the pad into the panty. She advised that this was a harmful habit that needed to be broken.
This came up while she was speaking on the causes of vaginal infections with Adwen the Love Doctor on Ghana’s most-watched adult edutainment show, ‘In Bed with Adwen’ which airs on eTV Ghana.
“When some women take off their pads and notice there’s no bloodstain in the panty, they bath and repeat the same panty forgetting that when they wore it the first time, it absorbed sweat from their skin. Some wear the same panty for two to three days and that is bad. You need to change panties every day”, she urged.
Per her knowledge, the sweat and dirt absorbed by the panty, when worn again, gradually starts to grow bacteria which when in contact with the vagina, causes infections.
Akosua again warned women to be careful of things that they put in and around their vaginal area especially during menstruation. She mentioned the use of cloth, advising that if it is the only option due to financial restraint, then it must be specifically a neat one.
