Is it possible for sugar of any sort to affect the vaginal area?

I have heard this too, Has anyone ever gone through this eating sugar of some sort and then your "v" starts to act up? Thanks.

  • Yeah if you eat too much sugar it could increase yeast infections. Is that what you mean?

  • Too much sugar in your diet can def. effect the normal flora balance in your intestinal tract as well as your vagina. Imbalance means something is going to grow that isn't supposed to grow.

  • Yep, just like these guys said. It can give yeast food to overgrow.

  • lol..I went to a pure romance party once and the lady explained that the "edible" novelties had no sugar in them- because sugar is used to make bread and "we aren't baking bread down there ladies"

    but that doesn't exactly apply to your question...does it... just kinda funny
