At present, many women are not aware that treatment with the help of “honey” tampons is possible in gynecology. Of course, on the ashes of newly invented drugs exclusively for women, folk methods are forgotten and lose their demand. But, sometimes, the effectiveness of improvised means is stronger than professional ones.
Tampons with honey? At the moment, this sounds wild and causes great surprise among modern women. So, honey douching and honey tampons have become forgotten methods of female treatment. And this is partly in vain. After all, honey is a completely natural product, which includes a number of biologically active substances, valuable vitamins and useful trace elements (folic acid, A-carotene, glucose). Despite the fact that honey is mostly a table product and a common improvised personal care product, its use in the field of female gynecology is also possible.
Honey is not an irritant for the mucous membranes of the pelvic organs. The effect of its influence remains for a long time. Many female diseases can be cured with ordinary honey. Qualified doctors recommend using linden honey (only from forest linden, not urban), thyme, mint and lemon balm. The external method of treatment with honey tampons can be combined with the internal one. That is, eat it in small portions or add it to tea. BUT! In the event that any use or use of honey causes an allergic reaction (swelling on the body, rashes, various kinds of discharge, nausea, dizziness), then taking honey is generally prohibited, in particular, as a gynecological remedy.
When to use honey tampons
Honey is mainly used for inflammatory diseases of the uterus. According to some women, honey even helps to overcome infertility and promotes conception.
What are the indications for using honey tampons?
- inflammatory diseases of the uterus (tubes, appendages, cyst);
- cervical erosion;
- climatic disorders;
- thrush (candidiasis);
- during pregnancy;
- metritis, parametritis, trichomonas colpitis, adnexitis.
Using tampons with honey is a good and convenient way to treat women’s diseases. Sometimes a doctor may prescribe honey douching in combination with taking other medications (for example, a 30% honey solution for douching). Natural honey as a pure bee product comes to the rescue in many delicate female situations. According to some lucky women, honey can really cure cervical erosion after childbirth (can be used in combination with other medicinal decoctions, such as chamomile or aloe). Cervical erosion during the current pregnancy is also one of the reasons for its use.
Vaginal and cervical discharge (protruding from the cervix) can also be eliminated with honey tampons (20-25 g of honey should be lubricated with a tampon and placed deep into the vagina). The course of treatment is 10-15 procedures.
Tampons with honey help to cope with infertility. Perhaps it sounds loud, but according to some lucky women, such tampons helped them conceive a long-awaited baby. It can be assumed that honey acts in the inflammatory focus of the uterine appendages (ovaries), and this is the cause of infertility.
Benefits of honey tampons
Tampons with honey in gynecology are a rather unconventional way to get rid of women’s problems. They effectively eliminate the onset of inflammatory processes, cleanse the microflora of the internal genital organs of a woman. This is not to say that honey tampons are equally useful and suitable for everyone. The result of treatment is always purely individual. And if for one woman tampons with honey are suitable as a means of treatment and prevention, then for another their use may be completely ineffective.
It is contraindicated to use tampons with honey in cases of extreme individual sensitivity to it, intolerance or allergy. Consultation with the attending gynecologist – that’s why you need to contact in the first place if there are any problems on the women’s front. You should not test the benefits of honey tampons on your own.
According to some women, tampons with honey can cause vaginal dysbacteriosis (its natural environment is somewhat disturbed, dryness occurs). It is worth noting that, as such, there is no scientific justification for the use of honey in gynecology; it still remains a representative of traditional medicine.
How to make honey tampons
In order to prepare for a course of treatment with honey tampons, you need to know how to do them. Would need:
- a package of tampons and a jar of honey (liquid, but not candied!);
- sterile gauze or bandage;
- douche or enema.
A honey tampon can be made in two ways.
First: wrap the swab with a sterile bandage and soak in a honey solution (proportions: 1 part honey to 2 parts water, you can add a few drops of aloe solution). Such a tampon should be inserted deep into the vagina at night (no more than 12 hours), removed in the morning. Before the introduction, it is necessary to clean the vagina (for example, with soda or chamomile douching). Course of treatment: 10-14 days (no longer than two weeks).
The second way to make a tampon: lubricate it with 1 tsp. honey (about 25g.), injected into the vagina for 3-4 hours (longer is not recommended!). The treatment course must also be maintained for at least two weeks. Already on the 5th-6th day, you can feel relief from inflammation and pain (during use, brown discharge may appear).
The use of tampons with honey should be accompanied by other aids. For example, alternating honey compresses along with lubricating the vagina with 15% propolis tincture.
