Have you heard about the Blue Waffle?

Posted By on Wed, Nov 10, 2010 at 12:09 PM

Of all the sick and twisted things that people make up about the vagina, this has to be up there with the grossest.

It's called The Blue Waffle Disease.

So, here we go:

- itching and the vagina inflammation

- vaginal discharge different than usual. It is different in color, smell and quantity.

- The vaginal area may have partial color changes. Some spots may be lighter, like a discoloration.

- Blue or purple colored vaginal area Now, all the mentioned above looks pretty similar to “vaginitis”, which may occur for different reasons, and the main would be lowered immunity and/or mechanical damages inside the vagina, that came from the lack of lubrication or use of unsuitable objects while masturbating. Keep in mind that vaginitis goes away by itself, spontaneously, just like it came, in the first place.

Have you ever seen blue or purple secretions from your vagina? What are you — a Smurf? If you've seen the pictures, which are too gross for me to post here (feel free to Google it), then you probably want to go and take a shower. But this is a fake disorder.

'Blue Waffle Disease' is a vaginal infection of mythic proportions. Images of this fictional disease started appearing on the internet on March 18, 2010. The gross and graphic nature of the images distracted readers from the actual symptoms of vaginitis, a malady unique to women.

Vaginitis manifests itself through itching and inflammation of the vagina. The normal vaginal discharge becomes clumpy and may have a strong smell. Bacteria grow normally in every woman's vagina, helping to maintain vaginal health by normalizing an acid pH and keeping potentially bad bacteria from multiplying. In the case of vaginitis there is an abnormal discharge, itching that may be mild or severe, and a burning feeling in the vulva.

Vaginitis may be caused by lowered resistance to disease due to stress or poor diet. The use of underwear that does not 'breathe' and the use of 'feminine hygiene sprays' can also cause vaginitis. Usually the condition goes away of its own accord. A visit to the doctor may be necessary in chronic cases.

Other causes (according to Our Bodies Ourselves) are "taking birth control pills, other hormones, or antibiotics; diabetes or a pre-diabetic condition; cuts, abrasions, and other irritations in the vagina (from childbirth, intercourse without enough lubrication, tampons, or using an instrument in the vagina medically or for masturbation). [Women] can also get infections during sex with a partner who has [infections]. Chronic vaginal infections may be a sign of serious medical problems such as HIV infection and diabetes."

In conclusion, if someone tells you to Google "Blue Waffle" be prepared to get grossed out.
