Lemon Juice May Stop Pregnancy & AIDS

The idea is nothing new. In medieval times, "legendary lothario" Casanova used lemon juice as a contraceptive, I read at the BBC.

More recently, in 2002, University of Melbourne reproductive scientist Roger Short stirred controversy by suggesting lemon juice could stop both sperm and HIV dead in its tracks. "Lemons could be used as a contraceptive by soaking a piece of cotton wool in the juice and inserting it into the vagina before sex," read the BBC piece.

Of course, the findings aren't without critics. Recently, Short went on
ABC Radio National's "The Science Show" to defend himself against critics. Critics don't doubt that lemon juice can kill sperm or the fragile AIDS virus, but they are concerned that lemon juice could damage the uterus.

However, as Short pointed out, studies of lime juice applied to the vaginas of monkeys showed no legions. In humans, a study on women at Berkley using a 20 percent concentration (one part lemon juice to four parts water) has yet to turn up any legions.

Also, some Nigerian sex workers have been using lemon juice as a douche (right before or after intercourse) for ten or more years without problems, Short told ABC Radio National. Still, Short urges patience, "watch this space and I think in another year, through studying these girls in Nigeria, we'll actually have the answers."

Pound360 Archive

About Me

My photo
I started pound360 to channel my obsession with vitamins, running and the five senses. Eventually, I got bored focusing on all that stuff, so I came back from a one month hiatus in May of 2007 (one year after launching Pound360) and broadened my mumblings here to include all science.
