Women have had difficulty with hygiene issues due to their anatomy and the natural processes of their reproductive system. From the onset of menstruation to menopause, the lining of the uterus is expelled through the vagina every month. The blood rich lining is nutrients for the egg waiting to be fertilized. Periods can be painful as well as messy. Being seen with blood on clothing, or leaving blood where sitting can be socially awkward to say the least. Then there are yeast infections. Everything from vinegar douches to Indonesian Crystal X are offered to treat them. However, science indicates that their cause can be associated with anything from diet to high blood glucose levels. Yeast like a steady diet of sugar. Then they thrive in a warm and moist environment. The vagina is the perfect environment when its acidic level changes. Too much sugar in the diet or sustained elevated blood glucose levels can be a root cause. Rarely is it poor hygiene at the root of yeast infections, especially in developed countries. There are even religious concerns for how women treat conditions that affect their vaginas. Some religions forbid the use of anything that penetrates the vagina if the woman is a virgin. Different countries follow different rules often for the same religion. Most yeast infection treatments are topical, but most of them are applied to the inside of the vagina using a suppository or device to insert cream medication. Crystal X is in a phallic shape. By comparison, men have it much easier in the care of their sexual organs. However, there are some special considerations needed for those who have not been circumcised. Infections of the foreskin can be very painful. Men who are circumcised have no special care needed on a daily basis to prevent problems.
