Okay just wondering, how often each of you do this. Do you think you can do it to often & end up with an infection or worse. If the average woman has sex three times a week how often should she douche? Yes I know I am a lil old to be asking a question like this, but my mom never talked to me and now I am trying to talk to my dd about things, and just wondered what you all thought/do. I do not want her to be as stupid as I am in these matters.

  • I have always heard you should not douche that is causes infection by washing out good bacteria and causing imbalance...the va-jay-jay is a self cleaning oven

  • When I did this on a regular basis I noticed I got waaay more dryness and yeast infections occured more often than they ever did. So, I agree with PP
