You might have heard about those palatable blue waffles which water your mouth instantly when you see them. However, have you ever heard about blue waffles disease? The phrase was paid the light of the day on the internet.

However, many speculate that this is true, whereas it is just a rumor. According to the online reports, blue waffles disease is a condition where a woman’s vagina turns blue and the vulva is disfigured. Be that as it may, there are many real sexually transmitted diseases, but there is no STD that turns the vagina blue.

If blue waffles disease is all hoax, then why is it gaining so much popularity? Let’s unravel the mystery behind this medical condition.

The Mystery Of Blue Waffles Disease Uncovered:

We all know that the internet is a double-edged sword where truth and lies conjoin, making it insurmountable for the users to differentiate between the two. And that’s how blue waffles found their origin. Waffle is considered to be the slang term for a woman’s vagina. However, this medical condition does not exist.

So, how did this hoax start?

It might seem surprising and interesting to know that the rumors about blue waffle disease started with a meme, in which the users did not expect what they were going to see after clicking on it. So, the malicious prankster posts the image of blue waffles with the text: ‘bet you cannot find me on Google image search.

Those who fell for the bait saw a distorted and disfigured image of a blue vagina. Since then, there have been a plethora of photos containing a woman’s vagina and showing it turns blue. However, there has not been enough medical evidence to support whether blue waffles are real or fake. Moreover,

They may or may not be photoshopped; but the point is, this is a fake sexually transmitted disease.

In addition to these photos, it was believed that blue waffles STD is often caused by poor hygiene and having frequent sex. Some online reports have also mentioned men reporting blue waffles whereas some mention that only women are susceptible to it.

However, following poor hygiene or frequently having sex does not lead to any change in the color of your genitals.  Moreover, any sexually transmitted disease affects both the parties involved, male, and females and not just a single-gender.  

Slowly, blue waffles started a series of rumors. Some people claimed that blue waffle disease can also turn the body blue if it goes unchecked.

Symptoms Of STDs That Are Similar To Blue Waffle Disease:

Sex is a part of life, which is extremely common. However, there are chances that you might experience some pain or discomfort while indulging in some sexual practices. Sometimes, if you are continuously indulging in sex, a woman’s vagina can turn dry even when it is naturally producing a natural lubricant.

Too much dryness can also cause discomforting friction. Apart from this, having rough sex can cause serious damage to the vagina, that is, it can tear up the vaginal tissue and even cause swelling in the vagina.  

Other sexual practices might also cause vaginal infections such as odorous discharge from the vagina, burning of the region near the vagina accompanied by a swollen vagina, discomfort while urinating, and even cause pain during sex.  

These vaginal infections are often caused by sexual intercourse, however, sometimes these infections can also be caused by allergic reactions or hormonal changes which affect the balance of the bacteria in the vagina.

Such symptoms which are believed to be caused by blue waffles are quite similar to chlamydia, gonorrhea, vaginosis, and trichomoniasis.

How To Have Safe Sex And Prevent Sexually Transmitted Diseases?

Safe sex means having sex while using barriers such as condoms for men and dental dams for females. Safe sex helps to curb the chances of acquiring any sexually transmitted disease.

Contraceptive pills are sometimes considered to be a barrier to be used while having coitus. However, contraceptive pills do not help in curbing the chances of acquiring sexually transmitted diseases.

One needs to always keep themselves clean and hygienic. Not only that, but you also need to make sure that you go to the doctor at regular intervals to get your body checked. Sometimes, sexually transmitted diseases manifest no symptoms, therefore, it is better to get tested at regular intervals.

What Is The Final Ultimatum?

The rumors about the blue waffle had started gaining momentum in 2013 when Kathy MacBride had been caught up in the ruse. However, one thing that is taught by blue waffles is how precarious misinformation regarding sex-related matters can be, especially when it comes to young adolescents and young adults who are more susceptible to these matters.

More often than not, young adults turn to the internet for help when it comes to sex and its related matters. They do not turn to their parents, which is quite obvious, as they are just trying to explore new things in life and gain experience of everything they could get their hands on.

Sometimes, in doing so, they are misinformed which leads them to face unfavorable consequences. Therefore, it is very necessary to fact-check every piece of information that you get on the internet, be it about sex or safety aid.  

However, once the information is on the internet, it is never going down soon. Even though official people have renounced the truth surrounding the blue waffles, people still believe it’s true and as a result, continue to spread misinformation.

This also highlights how the children and adolescents need a comprehensive set of sexual education which is formal, right from their schools. When it comes to matters like these, sufficient and reliable information is required in this area, so the children and young adolescents don’t get their hands on false or fake information which has no other aim but to spread malicious info.

Insufficient information is visible in the rising cases of STDs every day among young adults which causes serious decadence in the growth and development of a nation. Therefore, a need for formal sex education is required for the healthy lives of children and also fiascos like blue waffles can be spared from their lives.
