Hi, BeingGirl Experts!

I've got a question, and I hope it doesn't sound stupid, but I was reading the site, and I came a across the word "douche." What does douche mean? What is it?

Dear Sara,

Douching is the rinsing of the vagina by squirting water or other solutions containing vinegar, baking soda, or commercial douching solutions into the vagina. It is my opinion that you do not need to douche unless it is doctor-prescribed. The normal vaginal discharge is nature's own self-cleansing mechanism. I suggest that you do NOT douche unless it is under a doctor's direction.

 

Because 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.

This was so helpful because I didn't know if it was bad/good/neutral to douche or not. Thank you for the information!
