Do you douche?

So I ran into an article in one of my many web-surfing adventures that says African-American's and Hispanic women have a higher rate of douching than American women, Do you think that is true?

How common is douching?

Douching is common among women in the United States. It's estimated that 20 to 40 percent of American women 15 to 44 years old douche regularly. About half of these women douche each week. Higher rates of douching are seen in teens, African-American women, and Hispanic women.

Nope.  I was told by my doctor that it wasn't good for you, so I don't.  Plus, (unbelievable as it may sound) I'm afraid of putting foreign stuff in there.  I started wearing tampons in my late 20's.  That's how nervous I was about them.  So you can imagine the sigh of relief when they told me I didn't have to douche!  :-D

I'm African-American, and I don't douche.  Wonder where they're getting their information from?
