  • Douching is never recommended during pregnancy. And I wouldn't at any time. You don't have to. It will change the PH balance and eliminate healthy organisms . Not a good idea.

  • Do not douche! It kills healthy bacteria.

  • Douching is bad for your vaginal health to begin with and I know that regular douching isnt good while pregnant, however Im not 100%sure if its just water. Id definately walk the line of caution and not do it, and check with the doc at your next appointment!
