Gynaecologist Dr. Jennifer Gunter revealed that some women believe garlic with help cure a yeast infection - however has urged ladies not to try any unconventional medical treatments as female genitalia is simply not the right environment for garlic.

The author of 'The Vagina Bible' shared a string of tweets explaining why inserting garlic into your vagina is a bad idea.

She said: Why you should not put garlic in your vagina. A thread.

''Garlic contains allicin, in THE LAB it MAY have antifungal (i.e. anti yeast) properties. This is in a lab, not even in mice. Just a dish of cells. Your vagina is not a dish of cells.

''Lots of vaginal garlic aficionados (I SHOULDN'T HAVE TO TWEET THAT IN 2019, BUT HERE WE ARE) recommend inserting a clove. This means they don't understand for allicin to be released garlic has to be cut or crushed. Sigh. (sic)''
