  • well douching is not a healthy thing we advice our patient to not do it because it can throw your ph balance off down in your special area which can lead to other health issuses in that area as well. we advice people if you feel like you have too buy it and dump the contents out and replace it with just warm water and squirt that up there but as long as you bath/shower regular and use warm water with a gentle cleanser soap on the outter surface not too hot and try to limit the products you use in your bath water like oils and bubble bath with 60-90 days you will notice you really don't need to douche

  • Never. There is no need and douching can cause more harm than good.

  • YOu're not supposed to douche. It cleans out the good bacteria. Soap Works!

  • I am 33 and never have. It is bad for your vaginal health and can upset the ph balance of your vagina. The vag is like a self cleaning oven and doesn't need to be douched.
