  • Um....you're not supposed to douche EVER. It gets rid of the good bacteria that fights infections.
    The best way is to go pee, then use a baby wipe or a washcloth and just give yourself a good wipe.

  • No douching, ever.

    Sarah's advice is dead on.

  • Douching period ois not healthy. It removes normal flora and causes more problems than it solves. After sex ..first urinate. After you urinatebare down like to push when having a BM..this willhelp push semen out of the vagina. After that a little soap and water, or a summers eve wipe. If you aren't expelling any semen then your muscles are weak and you need to be doing more kegels.
