Today, my grandma and I went shopping. When I picked up some shower gel, she started ranting in front of everyone that shower gel injures one's "lady parts" and causes infertility, and that she wants me to give her great-grandchildren. FML

Tell her that if you smell, you won't find a man. If you can't find a man, you can't give her grandbabies.

I can't even comprehend the thought process behind that...

Some peoples grams man...they be crazy. And FIRST

Who says your going to have kids at all and that you're not child free? She acts like your opinion doesn't matter. Women aren't obligated to have children. You're not a baby making machine.

Yeah, she may some issues there. Been using shower gel for years and got pregnant twice (whilst on the pill) and using shower gel. Kids are really healthy. Definitely no infertility from shower gel.

I hope you got it any way. You are your own gel needing person.

How exactly does it injure ones "lady parts"?

A uti maybe?

Well if you put soap there, you kill the bacteria, which can be harmful. Just like the bacteria in your stomach, they're necessary to keep you healthy :)

You're supposed to clean around your vag, not inside it since it's a self cleaning organ.

#31 there are special soaps for the lady parts.

Ohh gotcha, learning something new everyday

Some ladies clean inside their vaginas, its called douching. It's widely regarded as not a good idea.

And you don't even need soap to clean around the vagina really. Some good warm water will do.

31, It's an FML because her grandmother was being absolutely ridiculous. If cleaning female genitalia lead to infertility this wouldn't be the first time you'd be hearing it.

Bacterial vaginosis is caused by using fragranced soaps on that area, which is how it damages it

I can't even comprehend the thought process behind that...

Talk about awkward moment, I just hope you corrected her judgement of what hurts ones "ladys parts". Grandma almost always knows best, but in this case I'm not so sure

Depending on how old she is I wouldn't put too much blame on her. My grandmother is also very paranoid about health and thinks everything is so dangerous nowadays. Maybe ask her to be a little more respectful and not make a scene next time.

My grandma believed that if you took a shower while you were on your period that you would get terrible cramps

Looks like granny's going senile
