Cause #3: Feminine Products

Feminine products such as sanitary pads and tampons are a necessity. However, there are also products such as intimate washes that may increase the risk of UTIs and yeast infections.

There are many studies that have found that vaginal cleansers, intimate wipes, lubes, and moisturizing creams increases the risk of infection as it disrupts the natural balance of vaginal microbiomes. The researchers have also warned that these imbalances can lead to reduced fertility, pelvic inflammatory disease, bacterial vaginosis, and a higher susceptibility to sexually transmitted diseases.
