Garlic in vagina = garlic taste in mouth!

Last week, one morning, I started getting a yeast infection. Wanting to stop it before it became awful, I stuck a clove of garlic in my vagina, because I heard that worked.

Less than an hour later, I'm at the bus stop, and thinking....wtf is that taste in my mouth? Holy crap, is that the garlic?! All day long: tasting garlic, just barely.

I looked it up online, and according to at least one source: yup. If you put garlic in your vagina, you'll be able to taste it in your mouth.

Now I know why that would happen: My vagina is after all, a mucous membrane, garlic was therefore in my bloodstream, and garlic tends to come out of your pores and mouth--hence the bad breath/smell of a person who really loves the garlic.

But, now I'm thinking about other things I've had in my vagina, like semen. Does that mean that some of the non-sperm ingredients of semen ended up in my bloodstream straight from my vagina? That is a strange thought. Logical, but strange. I thought I had to swallow come to have a guy's stuff physically become part of my body. Condomless sex works too (disclaimer: I haven't had condomless sex in a while since I'm not monogamous these days).

BIOLOGY: Both freaky and cool.

Oh man, I might have to now stick a clove of garlic in my vagina just to see if this works!

It does. I had trouble sleeping one night cause all I could taste was garlic.

I totally used to read Queen of Wands. Hahahhahah at your icon.

Garlic! Poke into it with a fingernail a few times (or poke with a fork or knife or something) if you want to be able to taste it more.

It's not, y'know, as strong as if you ate a huge thing of pasta with tons of garlic the night before or anything. It's more subtle than that.

Oh man, I'm sorry. You probably have to say that 89 million times a day. Will do. :^)

I read about putting up there this past week and thought that would be sooo strange, but now i'm really curious to try it. I would just be scared that it would ruin garlic for me... I love it so much.

Don't worry about that, I loved garlic before and I still do now. :^)

I don't really ever notice the garlic taste (and I was kinda hoping to). But that might have to do with my freakish consumption of garlic in general. If I make roasted garlic at work, I'll seriously just keep snacking on whole cloves all day long. I sautee most of my food at home in garlic-infused oil and throw a good 1/4 cup in most things I make. It makes sense that if it's pretty subtle, and I'm already at critical-garlic-mass, I wouldn't notice.
