Do you Douche?

Just curious... I used to douche all the time and then someone told me that it is not necessary, so I stopped. It this something that really needs to be done? How often?

  • I do it after I have my period. So once a month.

  • It really only needs to be done if you have an infection.

    Your vaginal secretions clean you out naturally...thats why they are there.

  • my gyn told me that it is not good for you because it washes away your good bacteria. i never once used one and to this day (knock on wood) i have never had a yeast infection or an infection of anykind. just shower and clean yourself well.

  • No, like Dr. OZ says, "think of it like a self-cleaning oven"
