Metro Don’t wear panties to bed at night, microbiologist advises women - THE CABLE

Tony Mbume, a clinical microbiologist, has advised females not to sleep with their panties on, so as to keep the vagina area dry throughout the night.

He also urged women to stop wearing tight jeans, synthetic panties and leggings, to prevent vaginal infections.

According him, most Nigerian females wear synthetic pants, leggings and tight jeans in the name of fashion, without considering the health implications.

Mbume, who works with CIAGIN medical laboratory, Oke-Afa, Isolo, told the NAN on Sunday in Lagos that synthetic underwear causes the vagina to ‘overheat’, which could disrupt its ecosystem.
