OMG I have heard this too. I was told that putting herbs in your vagina would help cleanse the womb and remove toxins too. I’ve had really bad period cramps so was looking at forums and chat rooms to try and help… people were saying they had bad cramps and discharge when they put these things inside them but that was ‘removing the toxin’ - I was honestly so close to trying it as I had such bad period pain!! Now reading the above I realise it’s utter rubbish… :grimacing: thanks so much for sharing Dr HANX!
