What 'feminine cleansers' do you use, if any?

I know that studies have shown douches to be bad for you, but there are still people who use them. What else is out there, and what would you recommend?

  • Nothing. Vaginas are self cleaning.If you wash them or douche, you can actually mess up the ph balance and that can cause yeast infections. When I am in the shower I will rinse the crotch area and the hood of my va-jay-jay.

  • Yes, it is true douches used on a regular basis aren't good for you to use.Because the vaginia has its own way of cleansing it self out.However you can use them once a year.
