Doctors are warning women about the new fad that involves a natural treatment claimed to rejuvenate female parts. Apparently, some women would actually buy ground-up wasp nests online to tighten their v*ginas.

Popular online retailer Etsy is allowing the sale of oak galls for personal use. Oak galls are deformities in trees caused by wasps laying eggs on tree buds. As a result, a hardened ball that serves as host to the wasp eggs forms. There’s also a tiny hole that allows the baby wasps to get out.

Imagine all those being ground up and used as a natural rejuvenation for women — that’s what one can see in an Etsy listing from Heritage Health Shop. The listing has since been removed but not before some media outlets picked up on its bizarre claims, including a topical application of the ground-up wasp nest to tighten the v*gina, improve sex life, heal episiotomy scars and reduce pain after childbirth.

The listing appearing on Etsy has raised concern for Dr. Jen Gunter, a renowned gynecologist, who used her blog to warn against the use of oak galls.

The listing has been removed but media outlets picked up on its bizarre claims.

These hardened balls are formed when wasps lay eggs on tree buds.

“This product follows the same dangerous pathway of other “traditional” practices, meaning tightening and drying the female private parts which is both medically and sexually (for women anyway) undesirable,” Gunter wrote.

Gunter went on to explain that keeping the female organ dry can result in painful inter course. Plus, it disrupts the natural balance of bacteria inside. All these could increase the risk of transmitting HIV. In other words, women’s private parts shouldn’t be dry and tight — they should be wet. More importantly, unfamiliar things and untested chemicals should not be inserted.

For gynecological problems, it’s best to consult a doctor rather than turn to an online retailer for a solution.
