Doctors have advised women not to rub VapoRub on their vaginas in a bid to cure thrush.

A new trend has seen women turning to the decongestant to soothe itches, boost their sex lives and get rid of the yeast infection in their nether regions, The Sun Online has reported.

One woman said: "My vagina itches. Just the outside on the labia. They become swollen as well. When I scratch they bleed.

"I use Vicks to sooth the itch and bring down the swelling. It really helps me. Am I harming myself by using Vicks?"

However, gynaecologist and spokeswoman for the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologist, Dr Vanessa Mackay, has warned females against using the menthol substance.

She said: "Using Vicks VapoRub on the vagina would not only be uncomfortable but also has the potential to cause damage and disrupt the natural flora of the vagina."

A relationship expert has claimed a couple's sleeping positions could determine the future of their romance.

Kate Taylor has claimed the way a person sleeps with their partner can be detrimental to their romance, and if a couple sleep "back to back" their love life will be doomed.

She told The Sun Online: "If you fall asleep back to back, then your intimacy will most certainly suffer.

"Facing in opposite directions is a bar to spontaneous kissing, intimate chats and eye contact. This is one sure-fire way to drift apart."

Kate has also pointed out that all relationships need space, and couples should be mindful of the gap between them.

She said: "If you find there's often a four feet gap, you are probably disconnected and miserable.

"Maybe you have an unresolved argument or one of you is avoiding sex. Skin-on-skin contact is a must. Oxytocin, the bonding hormone is released through touching."

A man who parked his car to avoid drunk-driving found it stuck in a funfair when he went to collect it the next day.

Martyn Ross, 45, from Derbyshire, left his car in the centre of Ripley before a night out.

But after being told about a new fair that had been set up in the area, Martyn went to collect his Lexus only to find it had been blocked in by the amusement rides, the Derby Telegraph has reported.

Speaking about the incident, Martyn said: "I was walking down towards the centre of town, and I couldn't really see much until I saw them setting it up.

"I started to worry thinking they've either towed it away or clamped it. I went to see that they've just built the fair round it instead.

"When I got there, there were a few fair workers who were laughing at me, but it wasn't that hard to get out.

"I had to drive up the curb and squeeze in between a tree and a bus shelter, but I got out eventually."

Though Martyn managed to weave his vehicle out of the pop up site, he was "scared" that his car would not be there when he returned.

He said: "It wasn't as bad as I thought, but I did get a bit scared to begin with."
