  • No, it's not safe. Not good for you when not pregnant either.

  • I like to sprinkle a little Summers Eve powder on my knickers in the morning. It's as refreshing walking on the beach in early morning without pants.

  • Your body has its own freshening system. Douches and other products actually can mess the system up and cause infections. Plain old water is best.

  • Nothing is best ,pregnant or not. Douching isn't good for as the body has its own way of "staying fresh".

  • Yes, agree w/ pps. Our vaginal secretions are there for a reason. They do serve a purpose if you let them.

  • You should only "wash" your vaginal area with warm water and maybe mild soap at most. Vaginal bacteria gets easily out of balance in some women, leading to problems like bacterial vaginosis or yeast infections. Keep the chemicals outa there sista.
