• What is douching?

    Douching means rinsing or cleaning out the vagina by squirting water or other fluids (solutions made with vinegar or baking soda that you can buy at the drug store) into the vagina.

  • Do I need to douche?

    Many women douche, but doctors do not recommend it. Douching changes the balance of natural chemicals in your vagina. This can make it easier for you to get dangerous infections. The vagina actually cleans itself on the inside with natural fluids. The best way to clean the outside of your vagina is to wash with warm water and gentle, scent-free soap during a bath or shower.
