Blue Waffle: Is It Really, Really an STD?

- Advertisement -

Remember the blue waffle tales and images which were spreading around on all social media platforms back in 2010? Well, if you were misfortunate enough to popup into these images, you could tell they were all vague.

What you set your eyes into was a nightmare prompting image of a blued vagina with what seemed like some deadly STD infection.

What is blue waffles disease?

Blue waffle is a phony sexually transmitted disease, which is believed to cause a blue discoloration and inflammation on the vagina.

It is allegedly caused by imbalanced diet, vaginal douching and improper hygiene, stress, constant vaginal cleansers change as well as a compromised immune system.

This disease is said to affect women especially those aged between fifteen to twenty-five years. Fungi and bacteria are the leading causes of this disease and one can also obtain it from frequented sex, according to the fake news.

Signs and symptoms of blue waffle

The supposed blue waffles symptoms are:

  • Vulva with some bright blue discoloration
  • A burning sensation or intense vaginal pain
  • A foul-smelling vaginal discharge which contains bacteria
  • Pain during sexual intercourse
  • Abdominal aches and pelvic regions swelling which may bring about abdominal fullness
  • Infertility and an irregular menstrual cycle
  • Limited movements on the lower extremities and the hip area
  • Insomnia, nausea, vomiting, depression, fatigue, and fever
  • In severe cases, blue waffle can allegedly cause tumor formation

The facts

Blue waffle is a disease that barely exists. Medically speaking, the term is in-existent in the medical world.

The person who posted these photos on the internet may have either taken pictures of a woman who had applied gentian violet on her genitals or photo-shopped the image. Gentian violet is a form of medication used to treat yeast infections, and it stains the skin purple.

Most people consider using it since its more common, and it is considered more natural than other forms of anti-fungal medication.

It’s too easy to Photoshop photos in this digital era and it won’t be a surprise to know that the photos that went viral in the past were actually post processed.

As a matter of fact, all you need is an expert and a few dollars and boom! Any photo you need can be edited without a trace in seconds.

The information given about this false condition is different on different websites. In these times and era, it would be gullible of someone to get information from the internet and consume it raw. People are out here trying to be famous and rich, and there is nothing we can do about it.

This disease is said to affect women only unlike most sexually transmitted infections. These raises eyebrows since most STDs are known to affect both men and women though they tend to be more severe when it comes to women. They also affect unborn babies.

Sex is a gift from God and people experience a lot of side effects from frequented sex. A person’s vagina cannot just turn blue due to constant sex, not unless she’s doing it with a person who’s covered with blue dye logically.

But why did most females take caution and believe in it? To some extent, it’s because it fits the notion that it’s not okay for a woman to have too much sex.

If blue waffles were a real medical problem, it would have been a publicly visible indicator that a woman has been into a constant sexual encounter with several men. Well, what do you think would happen if this condition was solely for men?

Definitely, if a guy’s penis were to turn blue every time, he had too much sex, the males wouldn’t be tripping. They would probably be using the blue color for bragging rights.

The Blue Waffle was probably a way of cautioning women off sex with multiple men. There have not been any reported cases of vaginal discoloration so far, but it’s only fair that we all take caution when having sex.

It is vital to use barriers such as female dental dams and latex condoms to prevent contracting and spreading of bacterial and viral infections.

It’s also essential to visit a doctor once or twice a month to get tested since some sexually transmitted diseases do not have side effects. It’s always good to occasionally take care of your genitals. Doing so is a significant step to being hands-on on your sexual well-being.

Bottom line

Blue waffle is a thing of the past but it’s a good idea to revive one more time to dispel the rumors. If you do a Google search today, you’ll be shocked to find out that there are still fake ‘Blue Waffle Treatment’ pages.

Well, we are not sure what the problem is, but they are fake just like anything related to Blue Waffle. As a rule of thumb, it’s wise to use protection and get checked for STDs and trust me, you will never test positive for waffles anytime in the future.
