Ladies, Hovering Can Be Dangerous!
So, ladies, when you go into a nasty bathroom, if you are anything like me, you don't want to clean someone else umm...stuff so what is your first reaction? Do you walk out and go someplace else or do you hover? I hover, even if the bathroom looks clean, I hover. Hell, I hover when I go to someone's house! Well, according to one doctor in England, I may need to stop hovering and hold it! This doctor is saying, it actually might be worse for your health to hover above a nasty toilet seat than just sitting on it! Yuck!!
SHE says that when you hover, it makes the muscles in your abs, back, legs, and pelvic area really tense. That makes it harder to urinate or poop, so you have to push harder and if you do that enough, you could wind up with a hernia, not to mention it might also mean that you don't empty your bladder and that can lead to urinary tract infections.
The doctor says if you just sit on the toilet, it's, quote, "very unlikely" that you'd catch anything. (Gagggging!!!) I'm sure I would probably clean is AND use one of those toilet cover things before I'd halfway consider sitting on a dirty toilet!! The main thing is to wash your hands, you can get sick from not washing your hands and carrying "stuff" out of the bathroom before just sitting on a dirty toilet.
