Well, if lack of anatomical education, being UTI prone, having periods, and childbirth weren’t enough, now there’s a new pressure for people with vulvas to keep up with- Yoni eggs. Yes, you heard that right, Yoni eggs! These egg-shaped natural stones have made a comeback claiming to improve your energy and strengthen your pelvic floor muscles. But wait, do we really want to put more pressure on our kitty when it's already been through so much?
WTF Are Yoni Eggs Anyway?
They're small egg-shaped objects made from natural stones that have been used for centuries in Eastern cultures to enhance women's health and well-being. The practice involves inserting the egg into your vagina and holding it in place through your pelvic muscles. It's said that the concubines of the emperor in ancient China used them to maintain their sexual health and please their partners.
Now, the yoni eggs' benefits (so people say) are plenty– including strengthening pelvic floor muscles, improving menstrual health, increasing sexual pleasure, and promoting overall wellness. But here's the catch, there's not enough scientific research to back these claims. It’s best not to get them as a birthday gift for your girlfriend.
Are Yoni Eggs Really Safe?
Well, some people out there swear by yoni eggs’ benefits, but let's not forget that there's not a ton of science backing them up. There are some serious risks associated with using them-
Watch Out For Infections
These precious gemstones like jade and onyx can be a breeding ground for bacteria since they're semi-porous. Stickin' things up your hoo-ha can up the infection risk, especially if you don't clean 'em right before and after using them.
Don't Break The Va-jay-jay
Even if you know how to use yoni eggs, it can still be dangerous. If you're not careful and use an egg that's too big, put it in wrong or if it is chipped, you could hurt your vaginal walls or pelvic floor muscles. Kegels are all about squeezing and releasing those muscles, but yoni eggs only focus on the squeezing part, which can do some damage.
Not For Everyone
Sorry, but Yoni eggs aren't for every lady out there. If you're pregnant, have certain medical conditions, or just popped out a lil' human (congratulations!), you might wanna stay away from them.
Using yoni eggs can mess with your head, too. If you feel pressured to use them or don't feel like you're getting all the benefits everyone else is raving about, it can be a real bummer. So, don't go comparing your eggs to other ladies, ok?
