A growing number of women with embarrassing medical conditions are consulting 'Dr Google' and up to 10% who have obtained the wrong medication have suffered unpleasant side effects as a result. A significant proportion of women admitted diagnosing themselves online and buying a treatment without checking with pharmacists if it is the correct product and others said they would seek to treat medical problems themselves before consulting doctors.
