my dear sisters,
i hope any woman considering using a "jamu stick" (a molded stick of herbal ingredients that is supposed to cleanse/tighten the vagina when inserted - it has been folk medicine for countless generations BUT THAT DOES NOT MEAN IT IS SAFE FOR EVERY ONE, EVERY TIME!!!) will be able to know about this before using one...
almost immediately after inserting this, it could DRY UP and FUSE to your insides - the instructions tell u to leave it in for 1-2 minutes, but in less than 30 seconds mine (which i did make sure was wet) became STUCK .......a few of them make mild mention that it might "adhere" and if that happens to just move it left to right to release it but the sellers of this are covering up how bad this could really be - i had hoped this could help with a bartholin's absess but instead, sisters, this FUSED to my body and i tried using the shower massager and positioning myself under the bathtub faucet to rewet it, but it wouldn't come out, and i ...pulled it out, RIPPING OUT MY SKIN, BLEEDING, AND IN THE WORST PAIN OF MY LIFE.......
i am desperate to save other women from this happening to them ...please do NOT use a jamu stick!!! or if u do - PLEASE DON'T - please make sure the stick is DRIPPING WET, and only QUICKLY slide it in once-twice and please do not leave it in for ANY amount of time not even 30 seconds!! PLEASE!!! ...i pray this never happens to another woman!!! *cry*
why would anyone want to do such a thing?
some women are naturally loose or loose from numerous sexua| partners. if promiscuity is the culprit then she might want to cut down on partners which is a good idea anyway.
as far as cleanliness, it shouldn't be that hard. all you have to do is wash 2x a day with a good body wash, eat healthier and wear good fitted, breathable undies. Green drinks like chlorophyll and spirulina works wonders on body odors.
it amazes me how women will go thru hurdles to please male sexua| partners when it is not reciprocated. men will not go thru all of that trouble for women ever, so why should you? stop putting yourself thru this for worthless men who are cheating on you anyway.
btw, as far as bartolins abscess you should go to a clinic and have it drained if it's bothering you that much otherwise abscesses can heal on their own after a few days if not picked at and reduce food intake and up water consumption, but that's if the infection is not too far along and severe.
it shows this thing comes from Singapore. everytime i buy something from there or anywhere in Asia it usually falls apart after 2 or 3 uses, so I guess that's saying much about the efficiency of many of their products. stick to American made products.
with all due respect, my - or any woman's - reasons for using such a product, are not your concern to stand in judgement of ...and my hygiene is just fine, i don't need your advice...
oh, and... i don't know whether u are male or just have never had a bartholin's cyst "drained" - u say like it's nothing, it's having one's privates sliced with a knife, and i say women should pursue ANY other way (jamu stick getting stuck was almost as bad!) we can to avoid having to go through that!
for whatever reason, this product was used and a traumatic experience was had so i am just hoping to warn other women who might for whatever reason they choose use this product ...please don't use this, ladies...
no offense to you, but you are probably like one of very few women using such a foreign object. i know it is none of my business about why you are using it, but you put your business out there already.
no, i've never had a bartolins cyst. but i can tell you that if i had such a condition, i would not be using this. the article says that it was an herbal stick designed to enhance orgasms, provide some cleansing and tighten the vaginal opening for better intercourse for the male. i know of too many women unfortunately putting themselves at risk trying to please some worthless boyfriend.
i am NOT one of "few" women who would turn to a jamu stick (which are NOT just for the benefit of a man, those are only the out-dated writings that accompany the product, HOWEVER if any woman wanted to use it for that reason, u may have bitterness towards men but that is up to a woman and herself alone) jamu stick use is a tradition passed down from woman to woman in other countries ...but unfortunately that doesn't mean it's safe (for bartholin's cysts, which you have no experience with and therefore shouldn't speak on, it could have been a way of holding delivering/holding medicinal herbs, but unfortunately it turned out to be dangerous due to its potential to unexpectedly fuse inside), so i wanted to post, in hopes that at least some women considering using this might look it up first and find my warning ...that is NOT just putting my business out there (and if it is, if it spares one woman from what happened to me then so be it).
my post was for women interested in jamu sticks, u were not so please just ignore my post...
well like i had stated earlier the article said that this was for tightening the vagina for male heightened sexua| pleasure. i think what may have happened is that it tighten too much and caused the fusing. i wonder if the herbs in it would cause a severe burning of the penis and urethra.
what i find curious, and maybe you can help me understand, is why was it used for bartolins cyst when the product does not state anywhere that it would be helpful for this? i do have experience w/herbs and i know depending on the person and strength that they can be quite nauseating. i've actually puked up herbs that were too strong for me, so i would be most careful in inserting them in body cavities w/out really knowing what the effect would be.
i understand that this is a healing w/out medication site, and i respect that. however, i really think if you ever told any proactive physician about this he would be very very perplexed as to why you chose this. this experience sounds very much to me like the ones i read about in that book i think called 'experiences in the e.r.' where docs and nurses tell of situations they've come across like that one older lady that docs had to remove a potato from her vagina. it was a really interesting book.
u are comparing me to a woman who inserted a potato into her vagina??? ...u are presumptuous and rude! i used an item INTENDED for vaginal use and validated through ages of cultural use, and which i am _trained_ in herbal medicine to use! the stick's herbs can draw the cyst, and it is the perfect way to deliver/hold them where needed (but, what happened to me could happen to someone else so i am urging other women not to try this)!
i posted to share with women an experience i had so they might be cautious - and u felt the need to respond, calling me/any other woman who would use this, foolish, as well as project your bitterness about men/why women would use this for men, spout condescending advice about hygiene ("as for cleanliness, it shouldn't be that hard. all you have to do is wash 2x a day with a good body wash") LIKE we don't wash ourselves already?! some women STILL have vaginal issues despite keeping impeccable hygiene!
NEITHER ONE OF US THINK WOMEN SHOULD USE JAMU STICKS - myself NOT for women's empowerment reasons and NOT thinking they seem foolish ...i can see the value they might have, BUT something can go wrong so, again, i urge women not to try this.
