  • The body will take care of itself. Don't douche, it's not natural and strippes away the good stuff along with the bad stuff. Just cleans the outside with mild soap and water daily if you need to have that "clean fresh" feeling.

  • All though you shouldn't douche weather you are pregnant or not the reason is b/c douching can flush bacteria and stuff back up into you and cause infections. You definately don't want infections up there when you are pregnant. Another reason you don't want to douche is b/c it washes away the the good bacteria that help fight the bad stuff. It changes your ph down there, just bad stuff.
