Wearing Underwear To Bed Can Be Dangerous For Your Health - Experts


There have been several claims that sleeping naked is one of the best experiences you can ever get in life, but back here in my country, it is a big NO for most people. The mosquitoes and for some cockroaches, rats and other flying insects couldn't be more happy to feast on your body that night.

Now, it's all about your underwear, which is something I can agree to.

American Gynaecologist Dr. Alyssa Dweck disclosed that she told her patients to stop wearing their underwear before sleep. 

The reason being that wearing constricting underwear through the night can create the best environment for a host of unpleasantness particularly in women, as for fabric which is not moisture wicking or absorbent, moisture then collects, creating the perfect breeding ground for yeast, and a high risk of infections.

The information she gave was supported by Dr. Shirley McQuade, Medical Director of Dublin’s Well Woman Centre who also revealed that wearing underwear overnight can lead the way for infections such as thrush and bacterial vaginosis (which gives your vagina a fishy odor).

“Wearing underwear to bed can cause problems for women as temperature increases in the private area leading to a low circulation which allows yeast and bacteria to thrive causing infections.

“It isn’t just underwear either. Wearing tight lycra (relating to spandex) while working out can also be a cause of recurring infections in women and I would always advise them to wear loose clothing while at the gym and cotton underwear,” she said.

The information is not for women alone as men share a part in this, according to experts wearing your boxers to bed can have an impact on your fertility.

As said earlier, the underwear increases the temperature of the area, in men, the scrotum which it temperature affects sperm count is just outside the body. The increase in temperature decreases sperm count and impacts on the man's fertility.

“Men who sit down at work would also be vulnerable to this problem, as well as men who wear lycra while exercising,” she said.

So whats the way forward?

I say better safe than sorry. Stop wearing tight underwear to bed, people.

So there you have it
