  • No I do not douche.

    Douching is not good for the vagina. It disrupts the PH balance in the vagina, it also washes away the "good" bacterias that the vagina needs in order to stay healthy. The vagina is a self cleaning system. Douching is not needed. The only time douching should be done is if it is medically needed and prescribed by a doctor. There are some infections that a doctor will prescribe a medicated douche for. Other than that, douching is a not a good thing to do.

  • I don't see a point in doing it and didn't think anyone did it anymore. I've heard that it's bad for you. It's one part of your body that is self-cleaning.

  • No. Was told not to interfere with the natural condition of the body. It was described as a naturally maintained environment!

  • Never because it kills good bacteria.

  • i'm in the generation of not douching. it's just not something i have ever needed to do. my body cleans itself just fine (with the help of soap and water lol). my aunt's generation did douche, but she stopped many years ago bc the dr told her it wasn't necessary and they don't teach it anymore.

  • I've always heard that it was a bad idea. You vagina will clear itself out naturally.

    why would you want to do this? I wouldnt .

  • I never have.  I didn't even know what one was until last year or something like that.  It hasn't been that long.  When I was researching it (google, lol) I found that there weren't any pros in it for me, only cons.

  • No, I heard they aren't good for you and that they kill good bacteria not just the bad stuff.
