Down There

Will my skinny jeans give me a yeast infection?

 
One day I came home from school and I was wearing a pair of skinny jeans. My mom told me to change. I had a lot of homework to do, so I didn't. She told me later that if I didn't change into something less tight, I would get a vagina infection. Is that true?

 

Your mom is right about this one, babe. Our generation’s penchant for increasingly tight pants has also increased the likelihood that you could get a yeast infection down there. Why? Well, think about it this way: The tighter your clothes fit, the less able your vagina becomes to “air out”. That allows the good bacteria to multiply way too fast, causing not-so-good things to happen.

 

While wearing your skinnies to school probably won’t hurt ya, it’s a good idea to change up your look from day to day, and to change into looser-fitting clothes when you get the chance.
