  • No its not, once in awhile will not hurt, but doing it monthly, weekly etc. is bad for your body...The vigina is a self cleaning organ, it will cleanse it's self. Just shower, douching also rinses away your bodies good bacteria leaving you open for the bad ones to invade like a yeast infection etc.

  • douching is never a good idea. it rinses away good bacteria. the best thing you can do is keep yourself clean (daily).

  • It is not medically necessary that you douche. Baths are better for you to cleanse naturally than using a douche applicator.

  • I don't medicaly have an answer but in my experience I like to douche with a gentle natural douche after my period it just makes me feel better.
