THE FOUNDER of Ropheka Hospital, Dr Mary Dei-Zanga, has advised women to abstain from using unapproved chemicals for cleansing and maintaining their private parts.
This, according to the award-winning health activist cum author, is the cause of most sexual reproductive related diseases.
Speaking to the DAILY HERITAGE at the side line of the ‘Girl Up’ event to introduce the Vaginne Gel to the Ghanaian market last Saturday, Dr Dei-Zanga urged women to pay attention to their health especially their reproduction health, saying, “In recent time, what we see is that a lot of women use different materials when they are menstruating.”
She continued that, “they [women] put a lot of chemicals with the aim of cleaning and maintaining their private part but in the long run they end up contracting various sicknesses like cervical cancer.”
She further urged women to seek medical advice from experts on products and chemicals the use at their private parts.
“There are a lot of chemicals in the market that some women use at their private parts which has side effects. Those chemicals destroy a lot of things in their reproductive system,” she explained.
Dr Dei-Zanga further expressed dissatisfaction about the government’s efforts in promoting female reproduction education in the country.
She indicated that the rate at which women in the country are contracting sexual reproductive related diseases is alarming, hence the need to intensify the education.
“When it comes to female reproduction health, I don’t think we, as a country, are focusing much on it. Women have a lot of sicknesses, so I think the government can do more on education on the female reproduction health,” she told the paper.
In view of this, Dr Dei-Zanga recommended the Vaginne gel to Ghanaians, adding that, it helps women to improve their reproductive health.
“This product really helps to keep the private part clean and does not give extra problems like itching and bad odour,” she advised.
Also speaking to the paper at the event, Miss Queen Komada Vice-President, Immeri Group Africa, highlighted the need for women to pay attention to their reproductive health.
She added that, their mission of helping people was the reason behind the introduction of their product in Ghana.
“This product is natural which protects the reproductive health of women, both internal and external,” Madam Komada said.
