• No. In fact they can be dangerous. 1. Truth Be Known, Feminine Deodorant Sprays Are Worthless and a Waste of Money FDS brand, for example, tells female consumers in their advertising that they can have a "clean, fresh feeling" ("down there") all day. The truth is, as long as a female is healthy, bathes with soap and water daily, changes her underwear every day, and changes her menstrual tampons or pads often, her crotch won't emit any foul odors. 2. Feminine Deodorant Sprays Can Disrupt A Female's Vaginal Ecosystem According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) , nature made female vaginas to be self-cleaning. A vagina contains mucous membranes. These mucosa shield the vagina by discharging mucous, salts and enzymes. They also draw in nutrients. (Your nose also contains mucous membranes. Would you spray deodorant up your nose to make it "fresh and clean"?) All a female has to do is gently clean the outside of the vagina with soap and water on a daily basis to keep her crotch from smelling bad. (No shower gels, please. They can irritate the vagina, as well as other sensitive private parts.) Feminine deodorant sprays are nothing more than chemicals and perfumes such as Isobutane, Isopropyl Myistate, Magnesium Stearate, Tocopherol, Mineral Oil Paraffinum Liquidum, Sodium Bicarbonate, Zinc Ricinoleate, Lanolin Alcohol, Oleyl Alcohol, Benzyl Alcohol, Laureth-3, Tetrahydroxypropyl Ethylenediamine, Propylene Glycol, and Fragrances. A problem with using feminine deodorant sprays is, these ingredients can upset the natural pH level of the vagina. "Good" bacteria in a vagina can't flourish if the pH level is too alkaline. This can result in unhealthy infections. 3. The Problems With Using Feminine Deodorant Sprays - Vulvovaginitis According to Medline Plus, Vulvovaginitis is "inflammation or infection of the vulva and vagina." (The vulva are the outer glands and organs including the clitoris.) There are many causes of Vulvovaginitis including bacterial overgrowth, STDs, (Sexually-Transmitted Diseases), viruses, poor hygiene, taking antibiotics, vaginal contraceptives, and chemicals and perfumes in soap, bubble baths, and feminine deodorant feminine sprays. Depending on the cause of Vulvovaginitis, common symptoms include itching and burning of the vaginal area, painful urination, foul odor, and abnormal vaginal discharges. 4. The Problems With Using Feminine Deodorant Sprays - Contact Dermatitis of the Vulva Contact Dermatitis of the Vulva is a condition that's caused by something coming in contact with the skin and irritating it. Besides toilet paper that contains perfumes/dyes, this condition can be caused by spermicidal contraceptives, condoms, menstrual pads that contain deodorants, soap, laundry detergent and- you guessed it- feminine deodorant sprays. The common symptoms of Contact Dermatitis of the Vulva are itching and redness. 5. The Problems With Using Feminine Deodorant Sprays - Synthetic Fragrances and Talc These deodorant sprays contain synthetic fragrances. Many artificial scents are made using petroleum by-products or cancer-causing coal tars. Feminine deodorant sprays may also contain talc. Talc has been linked to ovarian cancer. 6. The Problems With Using Feminine Deodorant Sprays - Male Irritation The problems aren't limited to the females who use these sprays. Their male sexual partners can also experience skin irritation. 7. The Problems With Using Feminine Deodorant Sprays - Trying to Cover Up Vaginal Odors And finally, if females use these sprays because they smell a foul odor coming from their crotch, instead of trying to conceal it, they need to consult their doctor. Odors are common symptoms of conditions and disorders that usually require medical care.
