Douching is a practice that is thought to have been around since ancient times.


According to The National Women’s Health Information Center, US Department of Health & Human Services, 37% of American women between the ages of 15 to 44 douche regularly.  Of these women, about half douche on a weekly basis.


When an woman douches, she cleanses or rinses the vaginal canal with a solution containing water, vinegar, baking soda or a comercially prepared solution.


Women give the following reasons for douching most commonly:

  • Cleanse the vaginal canal following the menstrual period
  • Cleanse after sex
  • Reduce odors
  • Wash away semen
  • Prevent pregnancy
  • Avoid STDs

Physicians DO NOT recommend douching. It is not good for you. Douching can change the vaginal flora, and make women more susceptible to vaginal infections. Health risks related to douching include vaginal irritation, STDs, pelvic inflammatory disease, and vaginal irritation.

“Most doctors and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) suggest that women steer clear of douching. All healthy vaginas contain some bacteria and other organisms called the vaginal flora. The normal acidity of the vagina keeps the amount of bacteria down. But douching can change this delicate balance. This may make a woman more prone to vaginal infections. Plus, douching can spread existing vaginal infections up into the uterus, Fallopian tubes, and ovaries”
