  • Coconut oil cured my vaginal pain.

    I had terrible vaginal pain for some reason. I couldn't even sit or lay down. And once I sat down or did lay down getting back up was a terror because of the pain. But I ended up drinking coconut oil because I heard it was healthy and by the end of the day the whole thing vanished.
