Doctor Shuppo explained why the trend of panties over tights is dangerous; the gynecologist spoke about the importance of intimate hygiene

Doctor Olga Shuppo said that the trend of panties over tights leads to stagnation.The trend of panties over tights has already been supported by Gigi Hadid, Irina Shayk and many others.

Scientific director of the network of immunorehabilitation and preventive medicine clinics Grand Clinic Olga Shuppo commented to Gazeta.Ruthe safety of the trend and advised not to repeat it.

“The new trend is more related to shocking and will probably be short-term. In addition, it creates direct risks for women’s health,” says the doctor.
The doctor stated that the contact of tights with mucous membranes not only causes discomfort, but it is also unhygienic.

“Lycra and nylon have low air permeability. Heat exchange is disrupted, and a kind of greenhouse effect occurs. The skin does not breathe, and increased sweating may occur. And irritation, which is inevitable in such a situation, provokes the risk of developing infectious diseases and allergic reactions,” Shurpa explained.
She also added that the texture of the tights fabric increases the risk of calluses and scratches.

“If the seams dig into the skin, and this is inevitable when wearing tights in this way, there may be a violation of blood circulation in the pelvis, which sooner or later leads to stagnation.”

Gynecologist Elizaveta Komarova spoke specifically for MedicForum and the rules of feminine hygiene and the dangers of nylon.

It is an integral part of our routine, but the average person knows little about it.

“For example, did you know that there are certain fabrics which are healthier and that underwear has an expiration date. These unspoken rules for using underwear can affect the health of your vagina and, depending on the style, even affect your mood.”
So we did a lot of research, reviewed several studies on underwear hygiene, and spoke with an OB-GYN to put together eight underwear rules you should follow.

Choose natural fabrics, especially cotton

You've probably heard this before, but despite all the cute styles and variety of fabrics, it's worth saying again: cotton is the best fabric for underwear.

“The vulva is very a sensitive and tender area similar to the lips on the face. You need to treat it with care,” explains Komarova.
What about the simplest, most delicate, skin-friendly fabric? Cotton. It's also breathable and moisture-wicking, which can help prevent yeast infections.

“Because vaginal discharge like moisture is healthy, you want your underwear to gently absorb excess moisture.”
Synthetic materials , such as nylon and spandex, do not allow the area to breathe. Instead, they trap heat and moisture, creating the perfect breeding ground for yeast infections.

< h3>Try to change your underwear every day, and even more than once if you want.

Some doctors say that you can wear underwear two days in a row if there is little discharge or sweat. But if you start to feel discomfort due to a buildup of vaginal discharge, you may want to change it more than once a day.

Many of my patients are bothered by this wetness and wear panty liners constantly.

“I don't think this is the healthiest thing to do because the liners can cause chafing and irritation. Cotton lined underwear will solve this problem and can be changed more than once a day.”
