Dear BeingGirl Experts,
What is douching? I saw it on the website, and I am not sure!
Douching is the rinsing of the vagina by squirting water or other solutions containing vinegar, baking soda, or commercial douching solutions into it. Routine douching changes the delicate chemical balance in the vagina—it can make a woman more susceptible to bacterial infections or introduce new bacteria into the vagina and cervix. Douching can spread existing vaginal infections to the fallopian tubes as well. We do not recommend you douche unless your doctor/health care provider prescribes this.
Hope this is helpful,
Your BeingGirl Experts
