WHILE men have been known to buy se_x pills to boost their se_xual drive, the trend has now shifted as more women seek their own female pill.
The female se_x herbal pill — which boosts women’s se_x drive, cleans and tightens the va_gina — is highly on demand on the streets of Harare as women are desperate to increase se_xual pleasure.
In an interview with the Weekend Post, one of the suppliers in Harare’s Central Business District revealed shocking statistics as over one thousand women order these pills from him per week.
Stephen Nyandoro, 50 said for the past eight months, demand for the female herbal pill has been on the rise.
He makes brisk business, especially during winter.
Nyandoro said women are desperate in cleaning and tightening their va_gina as well as to boost their se_xual pleasures significantly as men do.
“Most women, especially the young ones, are more into this female version of the little blue er_ectile dysfunction and tightening pill.
“These herbs boost libido, increase arousal and significantly improve se_xual function in women,” Nyandoro says.
He claims that by tightening the va_gina using his herbal products, the va_ginal canal will shrink and can result in heightened se_xual pleasure.
Special packages are also offered to treat fibroids and bacterial va_ginosis with another designed for womb cleaning.
Nyandoro said for many years, men se_xual dysfunction has been a vascular problem but nowadays, the increase of demand in herbal pills is evidence enough to show the same problem in women.
However, obstetrician and gynaecologist Colleen Mutasa warned women using herbal womb detox products that they are risking health problems, including toxic shock syndrome.
“The pills which many women are using are not only ineffective, but dangerous to the va_gina,” said Mutasa.
Describing the va_gina as a self-cleaning oven, she explained how inserting herbs is likely to interfere with its natural balance, damaging the good bacteria, or lactobacilli and irritating the lining, increasing the risk of getting an infection.
“The va_gina is a self-cleaner and there is no need to clean it, inserting anything into the va_gina for too long is dangerous and smelly,” Mutasa says.
“Many plant products and extracts are irritating and certainly none of the claimed contents have been tested for va_ginal use,” she said.
