How Are They Supposed To Work?

Yoni Pearls are basically like tampons filled with medicinal herbs. Creators of these very specific vaginal pearls claim that these detox pearls have a gravitational effect, that draws all the harmful bacteria, toxins, mucus, and old blood clots, towards the pearl from your vagina. It also claims that it tightens the vagina and cures vaginal dryness.

There are also manufacturers who say that their pearls detox the uterus and cleanses the vagina and claims to promote a healthier reproductive system. And even help with irregular periods endometriosis (1), and various other vaginal and uterine ailments. 

People have been using herbs to treat various health issues for a long time now. But there is no reason to believe that sticking a bunch of herbs up your vagina will in any way help with the health of your vagina or your reproductive system. Besides, there is no research backing up any of the claims laid out by these vaginal pearl manufacturers. 

Why Do People Use Them?

Yoni Pearls are marketed as vaginal hygiene products, which buys into the idea that vaginas have a bad odor and aren’t supposed to have that. Vaginas are self-cleaning, so they don’t need any extra help. Washing it with water is enough to keep your vagina healthy.

  • Vaginal detox pearls are risky because they alter the pH of the vagina. The vagina has an acidic pH to ward off the bad bacteria and to have the good bacteria live in harmony.
  • Using such herbs or scented creams will mess with this harmony and completely change the pH level needed for the vagina to be healthy. 
  • There are Yoni Pearls that claim to improve your chances of pregnancy. Unfortunately, this is not true. Inserting vaginal pearls might lead to toxic shock syndrome (3) or  PID, which will increase the chances of infertility and ectopic pregnancy.

Final Verdict

Yoni Pearls are herbal tampons that you insert into your vagina that claims to detox and clean it. They are little bundles of herbs, wrapped in cloth. You can insert them using a tampon applicator. 

The creators of these vaginal pearls claim that they help to get rid of the bad bacteria and toxins from your vagina. But, the vagina is self-cleansing, it does not need any extra help. All you have to do is wash it with water. 

Inserting a foreign object up your body will only irritate your vagina and cause infections. It also increases the chances of PDI and toxic shock syndrome. The suggested time to leave the pearls in your vagina is 24-72 hours. This is harmful, as it will alter the pH balance in the vagina and will kill the good bacteria. Overall, we wouldn’t advise shoving bundles of herbs up there.
