GARLIC TURNED GREEN INSIDE MY VAGINA.

Postby Godchyld » Fri Nov 11, 2005 7:37 pm

Greetings,

I recently used a fresh clove of garlic inserted in my vagina to cure a vaginal yeat infection. Can anyone tell me why when I got it out it had green spots on it? It was not green, and fresg when I put in it. I can only assume that mean something is wrong. Please help.

Can you describe the green spots a little more? Was the garlic sprouting? Or did it look like a colony of some microorganism?

Hello, and thanks for responding.

Well. it was definately not sprouting. The green appeared to be that similiar of the green color of mold without the "fuzzy stuff" on it (if you can picture that). Yes, when I first saw it, the first thing that came to my mind was "Did I make the garlic turn bad?" Anyhow, I broke it open further to examine it, and it appeared to have soaked all the way through the whole clove (the green color). Hope this helps. Now, not to sound stupid, but it didn't appear to have anything moving on it, so when you say micro organisms, what do you mean? :) Thanks!

Not to worry...I have seen garlic turn many colors...in my travels as chef...

read this:
http://www.gourmetgarlicgardens.com/pickle.htm

Garlic Can Turn Blue
Raw garlic contains an enzyme that if not inactivated by heating reacts with sulfur (in the garlic) and copper (from water or utensils) to form blue copper sulfate. The garlic is still safe to eat.

Garlic can turn Green
If the garlic was not fully mature or dry, pigments in the garlic may turn green when in the presence of acid. Garlic will also turn green (develop chlorophyll) if exposed to an temperature change or is exposed to sunlight. Some people say it can be stored for 32 days at or above 70 - 80° F to prevent greening, but I'm not yet sure that is true. Green garlic is safe to eat.

so, if your vagina was warm or acidic (maybe you also used yogurt or vinegar wash as a cure? both are acidic) it could easily turn the garlic green, but not to worry, its still good to eat (LOL) :lol:
Peace, Justine ;) have fun, live life, love fully!

Thanks Justine,

I figured it had something to do with the acidity of the vagina, and I'm sure being in a git acidy place all night would make me a bit green too!! My boyfriend joked about it and said I made the garlic sick instead of it making me sick. I thought about the yogurt, but I just can't get over the thought of something gushy inside me, it's bad enough I have the discvharge :cry: . But I feel a lot better thanks, now what should I do for him, because can't he keep reinfecting me with the candida if it is on his penis? Naturally he washes up, but is soap and hot water enough to kill it?

I suggest he eats garlic, avoids sugar and refined foods *you too*, and of course applying yogurt to his penis will certainly help to get rid of any yeast infection if it exists there...in fact, you could have fun with the yogurt--the two of you--and kill two birds with one stone? make sure the yogurt has live cultures in it..Lactobacillus acidophilus..look on the lable...get it from the health food store, or get Dannon...dont get anything that does not have living cultures such as yoplait...wont work...

use of the soap in washing might actually promote the infection, like it does when used to wash the vagina..
Peace, Justine ;) have fun, live life, love fully!

No worries at all, I have experienced this exact phenomenon. As justine said, it changes with acidity or other mineral concentrations, etc. I've used it and had it go greenny/blue, green, or not change at all.

Havn't read the whole thread, so sorry if this is redundant, but you could try plain yogurt or even acidopholus capsules vaginally (and oraly) for reducing the 'bad' yeasts.
oK - read all the posts (and am now editing mine) to say: Have your man dip his penis in the yogurt. Just not right in the container! Let it sit for ... I don't know, a while. Rinse and repeat as needed.

Good luck with your yeast.
