Well, most health care providers do not recommend douching to clean the vagina.  Douching changes the delicate chemical balance and ph (the acid base balance) in the vagina, which can increase the liklihood of vaginal infections.

 

Research shows that women who douche on a routine basis tend to have more problems than women who do not douche or who rarely douche.  These problems include

  • vaginal irritation
  • infections
  • pelvic inflammatory disease (PID)

 

What effects will douching have on pregnancy?

The National Women’s Health Information Center indicates that:

Douching after sex does not prevent pregnancy.  But, research has shown that douching may affect a woman’s ability to get pregnant.  In women trying to become pregnant, those who douched the most often (more than once per week) had the lowest pregnancy rate.
