Yoni pearls have been used for centuries by women in Asia and Africa, and more recently, they have become popular in the Western world. If you are considering trying yoni pearls, here is everything you need to know, from benefits and risks to ingredients and mode of action.
What Are Yoni Pearls?
Yoni pearls are small, herb-filled balls wrapped with mesh-like material. Yoni pearls have been proclaimed to have multiple benefits for women when inserted in the vagina. Even though there has been no scientific evidence to support these claims.
Anecdotal claims and clever marketing have been used to sell the fictitious claims of vaginal detoxification through the use of yoni pearls.
How They Work And What They Remove
According to claims, the herbs that are wrapped up and inserted into the vagina extract bacteria, toxins, and clotted blood from the vagina. They do this by being absorbed in the mucosa of the vagina, once they are absorbed, they begin to extract the toxins, bacteria, and all the other “bad things” that reside in your vagina.
Origins Of Yoni Pearls
Yoni pearls are said to have originated in India at around 1500 BCE. It is said the ingredients were initially mixed and inserted to treat female menstruation, as then it was thought to be a gift from the gods of fertility, but the accompanying pain and mood swings did not go well with the women.
So herbalists, shamans, healers, and temple disciples came up with a recipe of herbs to help stem the pain. But the resulting effect was that the women started noticing thick mucus discharge, clotted blood came out days after menstruating, and their vaginas had a fragrance.
This thus started the trend that is now referred to as vaginal detoxification. (None of this can be verified or proven, these tales are all anecdotal)
Why Use Yoni Pearls?
Well, according to claims, yoni pearls clean, detoxify and give your vagina a fresh fragrance. But here is the thing, the vagina is a self-cleaning, self-lubricating organ and does not need any herbs to “detoxify it”.
The media and big companies have made a lot of money from marketing female hygiene products to a lot of young women.
Portraying videos that make it seem shameful that your vagina does not smell like a box of roses is just one way to encourage the use of accessories like yoni pearls.
The vagina is supposed to smell like a vagina. It’s that simple.
You are told that your vagina smells bad, that it shouldn’t smell musty, or sweaty but the truth is, your body determines how your vagina smells. If you eat a lot of spicy foods, it can affect the ph. of your vagina which in turn can change the taste.
If you are on your period, your vagina will have a metallic taste, if you have bacterial vaginosis. Your vagina will have a fruity taste with an accompanied fishy smell. TIP, go and see your doctor.

Disadvantages Of Using Yoni Pearls
They are a scam for separating the gullible from their money. Most of the claims, cannot be proven. It is more likely that you get a vaginal infection than a detoxified vagina
- They can disrupt the ph of your vagina which can lead to vaginal infections
- They can cause prolonged vaginal bleeding
- They can cause menstrual irregularities.
- None of the said benefits have been scientifically proven
- Some of the herbs used in preparation can be dangerous when absorbed via vaginal mucosa
Why Do I see Thick White Discharge Or Yellowish Discharge After Using Yoni Pearls?
This is because of the borax present in the herbal mixture. When substances like borax mix with liquid vaginal secretions. It tends to start foaming or bubbling. This, in turn later calcifies (hardens) and forms around the yoni pearl.
Depending on the individual person, sometimes vaginal secretions can be white or yellow. Regardless of the color, they calcify around the yoni pearl.
This is why when it is removed, you see some discharge, calcification, etc. it is also important to note that some of the herbs in the production of yoni pearls can affect the color of discharge from the vagina. This is also why you see some dark-colored particles secreted when you insert yoni pearls.
How Long Am I Supposed To Use Yoni Pearls For?
From what I have read and researched. It would seem the ideal amount of time is 3 days. But in reality, and also from countless medical professionals, nothing should be inserted in your vagina for more than 6 hours. So, the ideal length of time being 3 days, is just not medically sound and extremely dangerous.
Yoni Pearls Before and After
The vagina is a self-cleaning agent, and it remains this way until something external is inserted and disturbs the pH. Once you introduce a foreign body into your vagina like yoni pearls, the vaginal secretions mix with the herbs.
This causes the bubbling phenomenon that you see, and also white or yellowish discharge that usually comes out 72 hours after inserting the pearls. It also dries up all the moisture in your vagina, thanks to the alum and borax. The rhubarb can also cause some reddish discoloration.
Complications Of Using Yoni Pearls
- They can result in serious infections. Just the mesh cloth alone that is used in wrapping these pearls introduces a whole new kind of bacteria inside your vagina which now mixes with the old bacteria.
- They kill the good bacteria (lactobacillus) in the vagina.
- The dried alum in the herbal preparation acts as a tightening agent when it comes in contact with vaginal secretions. This in turn thickens the mucosa. This gives the illusion that your vagina is being tightened. But in reality, it is being calcified.
- It may cause pelvic inflammatory disease
- Extended usage (if kept in the vagina for too long) can cause toxic shock syndrome.
- They can alter the pH of your vagina
- Some of the ingredients like motherwort can cause severe abnormal vaginal bleeding
- If inserted while pregnant can cause miscarriage
- Known to cause irregular periods.
- They can block your fallopian tube. This can occur because of the borax and other substances used in the preparation of the yoni pearls. Once they are inserted, vaginal enzymes begin to work on them
Due to the acidity of the vagina, it triggers certain reactions when mixed with these pearls. This can create a backflow that lodges in the fallopian tube. This constantly increases eventually causing calcification of your fallopian tube.
If for any reason, your vagina has a fruity smell, fishy smell, redness, and/or irritation, see a doctor. A lot of women claim many benefits that they have derived from inserting yoni pearls. While everyone is entitled to their opinions.
None of the ingredients listed have no business being inserted into the vagina. Much less for three days.
I know a lot of readers will ignore my warnings and still proceed to insert yoni pearls into their Vjayjay.
