    i just don’t feel as if she was on the show to educate … it seemed like she came for alterior motives … πŸ’°πŸ’°πŸ’° that’s just my opinion. especially looking back on her past … “so girl take notes be humble and sit down” yourself … i understand where you are coming from, if certain things weren’t hypersexulized (for example breasts and vaginal health) then it wouldn’t be such a great deal.

    if i had an issue with my little lady, i wouldn’t be discussing it on national tv. that’s just my preference, i would speak with lady of my family whom i am close with. you know our moms and grandmothers love giving unsolicited advice especially if we wearing tight jeans πŸ˜‚) and if i was too afraid to speak to them about it .. i would speak to my gynecologist — in private. i don’t think what she did was wrong. i just wouldn’t have done it myself. i commend her for that ! because she could have really helped another woman or even a teenager out by telling her story fearlessly.

    Wow I don’t really have a problem with this chic but who comes on TV to talk about this. It’s basically saying “my pum pum sticks”…lol. Girl you need some serious cleansing….

  • Alexis_Gloria

    This is so true.

  • Alexis_Gloria

    Good advice

    I would like to add, always keep Boric Acid suppositories, and tea tree oil on deck. Tea tree oil will reduce the itching of a yeast infection on the spot and it will also stop it if inserted. Boric acid will neutralize the pH of the vagina ceasing all non-std related infections (i.e., yeast infections, and bacterial vaginosis). Also, vaginal scraping will immediately stop yeast infection discomfort on the spot. I will say this, I am only issuing this advice (not a medical diagnosis ) if it has been determined there are not more SERIOUS ISSUES ( and I am not just talking about HIV) at hand. It has been determined that a healthy female should not have more than 3 yeast infections in a year, more than 3 yeast infections in a year needs to be evaulated by a health care professional. Anymore than 3 yeast infections in a year should be a cause of concern and it’s not always HIV. It could be a host of other things, such as lupus, diabetes, thyroid, alcoholism (because of the sugar). I will probably get a lot of backlash for what I am about to say, but ladies, please stop letting these men ejaculate in you. Sperm and the vaginal environment are mortal enemies for a reason. Even if you are married, do not let your man ejaculate in you UNLESS YOU ALL ARE TRYING TO MAKE A BABY. Why do you think a man releases millions of spermatoza but only ONE makes it to an egg? Because sperm is alkaline and a woman’s vagina is acidic. The two DO NOT MIX, and one more thing, I never believed it, but when I was like 23 , (I am 41 now), I became friends with this lady (pretty “redbone” chick), and she told me if you are in a monagamous relationship, and you find yourself keep getting bacterial vaginosis, your man is cheating on you. She was like 32, and I was 23 so I thought she was talking “old woman” talk, but she was right. If you are in a “monagamous” relationship and you keep getting reoccurring bouts of bacterial vaginosis, and ALL your STD tests (including HIV), keep coming back negative (which is great), YOU NEED to have a talk with YOUR MAN. I hate to be the bearear of bad news, but your man is probably having UNPROTECTED sex with you, and the next chick-that is why you keep getting reoccurring bacterial vaginosis, because even with him washing, he has your juices, and the next chick juices on him, and every woman juices are different, so you all juices are fighting each other while he is cool, he chilling, NO SYMPTOMS, NO DISCOMFORT. At any rate, I hope this post helps SOMEBODY. :-). No judgement, no hate-EACH ONE, TEACH ONE.:-)
    Oh, and the tea tree oil is Hollywood Beauty. It can be found at Family Dollar (in the south), and at beauty supply stores.

  • Genevieve Brock

    I know she needs to support the kids and all but she couldn’t think of ANYTHING else to reveal to the world about herself??? 😳

  • Leah

  • Adrianee P

    It’s going to be OK. Lol no one analyzed it. No need to be so sensitive

  • Cynthia Watson

    Men should listen they always got they face down there. No matter how it smell anyway these nigs still suck and lick it

  • Cynthia Watson

    Thank u

  • Cynthia Watson

    Why should anything bout the pussy be private. Its where life is born and so is ignorance. Men aren’t truly educated on pussy and some or a lot of women don’t know how to educate them in it. Also its so many women suffering from these situations and Jeeping it private and it turns into worse things. So sex education is just that sex education. From the different spells of the pussy to bacteria the dick carry. So girl take notes be humble and sit downπŸ‘½

  • mirra.k

    Um as a women I do know that there are many ways!! However I was being sarcastic because of who the hell she is!! So no need to analyze what I wrote thank you!

  • Tia Maria

    πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ word and now she just confirmed that her shit ain’t right down there….who wants to fuck that now πŸ‘ŽπŸΌπŸ‘ŽπŸΌπŸ‘ŽπŸΌπŸ‘ŽπŸΌ

  • chinaa’ starr

    somethings are just PRIVATE ! damn. anything for a check tho, right ? i’m surprised she didn’t get checked on the show i front of the live audience !! if it was meant to be an “out in the open” type thing … we would wears out pussies on our faces for all to see ! instead, they are tucked in the middle of 2 legs ! if you keep that box clean and then legs closed to the “homies” you would have to worry about making pizza dough down there.

    like i said … she could have discussed this with HER OWN ob/gyn or found a new one if she can’t see to get help from her current one. damn, she ain’t have to go in TV and talk about her box on national TV .. this ain’t VH1 !!

  • Laura is so desperate for any tv time. anyways…
    INFORMATION;
    -reduce sugar
    -drink cranberry juice
    -use panty liners if you aren’t wearing panties (yoga pants) and even if you’re wearing non cotton panties
    -stop using thongs or limit use drastically (go without)
    -wipe from FRONT to BACK (from your clit (since some of you don’t know where your urethra is) to your ass/taint) after you urinate.
    -urinate after sex ALWAYS
    -get tested for stds (even if you’re in a secure loving monogamous relationship)
    -get pap smear (annually)
    -get tested for bacterial vaginosis (whiff test or swab for microscopic analysis)
    -get Diflucan and you may never suffer another yeast infection again
    -if you have a daughter/wife or woman you love…you should also care about her vaginal health so learn these things as well.

  • Alexis_Gloria

    She is brave and this was very informative. Many women don’t know anything about this so kudos to her for addressing this common issue.

  • Briet

    She did say a couple years ago that Gilbert Arenas give her an std. So i don’t understand this yeast infection story πŸ€·πŸ½β€β™€οΈ πŸ€¦πŸ½β€β™€οΈ

  • shasyl

    which man wants to hear this ish this open a gap for people to throw so much shade…tmi

  • Talone

    OMG I’m so embarrassed for her. I have no idea why she would get on tv and do this. The host was hinting that she could possibly have an std lol. Guess she heard about those Gilbert Arenas std rumors lol

  • Reeree

    The thirst is truly real!!!!!!! And nasty!!!!!

  • Brielle

    Well yeast infections are common big deal but yea everyone the whole world don’t need to know. Your diet plays a big part in having a healthy yoni also the lotions soaps laundry soap as well even wearing certain under wears … etc

  • Arielle

    Keep it to yourself come on now damn too much information

  • MChantye

    I would imagine she would take this up with her GYN and not the whole world, dayum

  • Adrianee P

    As a woman you should know there’s so many ways to get these issues but beside that I still think it’s gross she’s talking about it

  • Zola

    Yuck!!! I thought she was cool but hell no to saying nasty shit for attention.

  • mirra.k

    Stop fucking everything!! That solves it lol but honestly even lubricants can cause yeast she may need a vaginal cleansing

  • Nene

    Oh gawd why child?! Why put your business all out there for a couple checks ? 😩😩 times must be hard for you baby bop.

  • Lyric Samone
