The Doctors discuss beauty blogger Huda Kattan’s DIY vaginal lightening guide which caused controversy after she posted it on her blog. Lemon juice, coconut oil, rosewater… The Doctors collectively agree this is a “don’t!"
OBG/YN Dr. Nita Landry says the blogger didn’t use the proper terminology referring to the vulva as the vagina, which is a red flag. She adds that lemon can be irritating and adding stuff down there can throw off the pH balance which increases the probability of infection. She adds that when it comes to your vulva, they can look different and change as you age but that’s okay. But, if you do notice any lumps, bumps or changes in color that seem off, see your doctor.
Plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon points out that if you do have something down there that bothers you and affects you either physically, emotionally or psychologically, there are a bunch of cosmetic procedures that can be done. Dr. Landry interjects “But if you do something make sure you’re doing something you want to do, not because your partner wants you to.”
