4 Relationship Issues That Could Lead to Divorce
Signs Divorce Could Be a Good Option
The following material contains mature subject matter. Viewer discretion is advised.
A viewer writes, "My husband puts olive oil all over his body (including his privates) and as a result when we have sex I'm constantly getting an infection. He said this has nothing to with it, but I think it does because I know women are sensitive "down there." What do you think?"
OB/GYN Dr. Nita Landry weighs in on the couple's debate about olive oil explaining the body's balance of good and bad bacteria can be thrown off with the addition of olive to this part of the body. She says this practice could lead to bacterial vaginosis or a yeast infection, which may include a discharge or an odor.
In addition to how messy the use of olive oil in the bedroom could be, Dr. Nita also notes the oil can also break down a condom, which could lead to an increased probability of a pregnancy or a sexually transmitted infection. "I would say to this viewer's husband, if you love your wife's vagina, please stop bathing it in olive oil!" Dr. Nita adds.
