  • Feminine wash is bad for your vagina, it messes up the ph.

  • I agree with PP. Femine wash is bad for your vaginal PH. It washes away natural bacteria that fight infection and keep the vagina safe from infections.

    The semen that you need for conception should already be in the uterus by the time you shower so you don't have to worry about washing away the sperm you need for conception but you should just use a regular mild soap or body wash instead of a femine wash.

  • WHY WHY WHY would you use those washes?? It can throw off your pH, allowing infectious bacteria to overgrow, which then increases your risk of infection, then that lowers your chances of getting pregnant.
    NEVER use them!! I'm sure they were able to find some gynos who were willing to say they tested it for a few bucks.
    Your vagina is self-cleaning. It's SUPPOSED to have a smell! It's part of what attracts a mate!

  • I agree with all the above answers. Just don't use it. At least not while you are TTC.
