Are Yoni Eggs Safe?

Are Yoni Eggs Safe? Some women swear by yoni eggs – sometimes called jade eggs or love eggs – for better sex. These egg-shaped stones are meant to be placed in the vagina and kept there for several hours, sometimes overnight.

Is the practice safe? Many medical experts don’t think so.

One egg retailer, Goop.com, was ordered to pay a $145,000 fine in September because of unsubstantiated health claims made for its jade and rose quartz eggs. (Another product, the Inner Judge Flower Essence Blend, was also included in the lawsuit.)

The suit was filed by a team of California prosecutors. According to language in the lawsuit, Goop claimed that the eggs could “balance hormones, regulate menstrual cycles, prevent uterine prolapse, and increase bladder control.”

However, the claims were not backed up by scientific evidence. Goop was fined, and the incorrect information was deleted from its website. The company is required to refund anyone who purchased the egg between January 12, 2017 and August 31, 2017. However, the company may still sell the eggs.

Goop is not the only retailer selling yoni eggs or making health claims. Love Stone says that using an egg can increase sex drive, boost orgasm, improve vaginal lubrication. One egg set sold on Amazon.com is said to have “incredible healing properties.”

So what’s the problem?
