#Issathread
#DrJohnAfam
But but ..

It was after i used that dirty toilet i started having symptoms.

Still No ..

ITS NOT THE TOILET THAT GAVE YOU THE SYMPTOMS!
STOP LYING ON THE TOILET!
#DrJohnAfam
You have heard now abi?

Okay!
We would treat this from 3 angles.

1 What do we actually have when we say toilet infection?

2 Why cant i get infection from the toilet?

3 How can you prevent the things we call toilet infection, that is not toilet infection?

#DrJohnAfam
The most common complaints when we hear " Toilet infection" are.

Itching,
Redness
Discharge.
Pain.
Odor

These are signs of an Inflamed Vagina
Easily called Vaginitis (Inflammation of the Vagina).

A variety of things, both infectious and not can cause Vaginitis.

#DrJohnAfam
Like in the earlier thread, about allowing your "Vagina to Vagine" and to leave it alone, we know that the Vagina has its own environment!.

It has its own microorganisms that balance the PH Levels and prevent other infectious organisms from taking a hold
#DrJohnAfam
So anything that messes with the environment of the Vagina, could cause inflammation and present with the symptoms

Like :

Sexually transmitted infections,
Bacterial Vaginosis,
Trichomoniasis,
Fungal infections,
Tight Underwear
Poor Hygiene
Douching/Vaginal Creams

#DrJohnAfam
Other Uncommon Causes include.

Contraceptive Use,(esp IUD)
Change in Sexual partners
Sex
Pregnancy

These are all "things thats could mess with the Environment of the Vagina and cause "Symptoms" .

Now , why can't you get infections from the toilet.?
#DrJohnAfam
Microorganisms are unable to survive long after leaving the body and would have to be transferred into the body not just the Skin.

So except you have a wound on your thigh/ buttocks and you have low immunity, or you go around humping public toilet seats ,

#DrJohnAfam
The chances of you getting an Infection from the toilet seat , is non existent.

However, can you get a bug from the toilet, yes.. the same way you can get from the bus, or the office.

Which is why it is advised you wash your hands before and after using the toilet

#DrJohnAfam
To prevent messing with the Vaginal environment,

Wear Clean and Dry, preferably Cotton underwear,

Wipe from front to back,

Dont wear tampons/ pads for too long

Abstain, Be Faithful, or Have SAFE SEX!

Dont Douche or Spray or Bake or put anything in the Vagina

#DrJohnAfam
Pat down the "down there " with a clean towel after bath.

Avoid tight fitting jeans / panty hose

Dont take drugs, especially antibiotics, except prescribed by your Dr

Observe proper hygiene

And mummy said you should STOP BLAMING THE TOILET.
Questions and Comments would be appreciated and swiftly replied.

Kindly share , Toilets everywhere would thank you ..

RT for awareness, Follow for more.

@aproko_doctor and @DoctooraHealth inspired this
The Thread about Vagina Care , Incase you missed it

All of you calling me Vagina Doctor in the DM , Well done..

I am not at home....
Update : @flakydancindoc has provided some valuable information, despite the unlikeliness of contracting a Vaginal infection, you could actually a get a skin infection, from a dirty Toilet seat, especially if your immunity is low, diabetic ,or you have sensitive skin,
#DrJohnAfam
So you can line the seat with toilet paper before seating.

Also avoid the toilet water splashing on your "down there" it could actually cause an Infection.

The key thing to note is Hygiene, wash hands thoroughly after using the toilet, especially public ones

The Urinary tract is made up of Kidneys, Bladder,....
....Ureter (Kidney to bladder) and Urethra ( Bladder to "outside"). Most Infections affect the Lower part, i.e Bladder and Urethra, but it can sometimes ascend to the Kidneys.

A variety of Microorganisms can cause UTI. And UTI's are quite common.

Women are more prone to UTI's..
..than men, because thier Urethra is shorter.

Symptoms of UTI, include,

Pain, Burning Sensation when Urinating,

"We need to do an Operation"

Those "evil" Words that no pregnant woman wants to hear..

Why is it "not my portion"?
Why do we need to do an Operation?
What are the complications?
What are the other options?

Ceaserean Delivery ( C-Section, Surgical Birth, Abdominal Delivery) is the delivery of a baby or babies, through an incision (cut) in the abdomen, and the Womb. This is often indicated when a Vaginal birth ( Normal delivery) would put the mother or baby at risk
#DrJohnAfam
Its one of the most frequently performed surgical procedures.
There are a LOT of reasons, why your Doctor would recommend a C-Section and not all of them can be covered in this thread (That's how many there are).
But lets look at a few.

Do Girls Mature Earlier than Boys?

Is it Scientific? Or Just a Social Construct?

If they do, why do they?

If they dont ,why do we think they do?

Fam,
#IssaThread
#DrJohnAfam
Girls actually Mature earlier than Boys,it is a Scientific and Cultural fact

Here's why,

Girl hit puberty earlier than boys, at this stage you body starts preparing for the possibility of having and raising a child.

There is an increase in the "woman" hormones
#DrJohnAfam
With puberty and its corresponding physical change, there also are many emotional and psychological changes that a woman experiences.
It is also during this time that the gray matter develops in a woman's brain.
Social awareness sets in during this whole process.
