  • No, it's definatley not bad. I think the main concerns are the temperature of the water and an increased risk of getting a UTI. It's treatable with meds though. Don't worry and have a good night relaxing!!

  • it's not bad at all. My doctor actually told me to take a bubble bath with unscented bath products to help me relax but the scents and all the extras in scented bubble bath products can cause discharge and infections. Just dont take one every night..2-3 times a week is okay tho.

  • It's not bad. However, I found out one thing the hard way...if you take too many bubble baths (or baths with those bath salts) it can dry out your lady-bits really badly when you're pregnant. I actually was getting tears inside my outer labia because of it :(. But occasionally is no big deal

  • i read about it and the only time u should be concerned is after 38ish weeks when you're dialated (or lost ur mucus plug) because you don't want to be more likely to get an infection.

  • Its bad to take a tub bath anytime. The dirt from your body can creep into your vagina and thats how you catch infections and other stuff.
