5 women sanitary products you should stay away from!

Products with added fragrances may contain chemicals and irritants that can disrupt the delicate balance of the vaginal ecosystem, leading to irritation, itching, or allergic reactions. 

Some sanitary pads and tampons are made from synthetic materials like polyester or rayon, which may trap moisture and heat, creating an environment conducive to bacterial growth.

Tampons with high absorbency levels, especially those labeled as "super" or "ultra," can increase the risk of toxic shock syndrome (TSS). TSS is a rare but potentially life-threatening bacterial infection associated with prolonged tampon use.

Reusable cloth pads can be an eco-friendly alternative to disposable products, those of questionable quality or poor construction may not provide adequate protection against leaks or offer proper absorption.

Douches and intimate washes marketed as "feminine hygiene" products often contain harsh chemicals, fragrances, or antibacterial agents that can disrupt the natural pH balance of the vagina. Regular use of these products can increase the risk of vaginal infections and irritation.
