Douching is Dangerous! Here's Why...

There are so many differing opinions on douching that it can be confusing to determine if it’s good or bad for your vagina's health. Trust us, you’re not alone in this! Growing up, many of us had that auntie who swore by douching. It was a staple in their feminine care routine. I would regularly see that empty plastic receptacle lying in the trash and know Auntie was getting ready for a date. When it comes to taking care of our feminine health, it can be difficult to determine what's actually safe and what's a well-intentioned tradition that no longer serves us. As the girl’s girl that we are, we're putting you on to game and delivering the updated facts on feminine care best practices. So grab your cup of tea and let’s hop right in!


What’s The Deal With Douching?

Well, it can be a distressing ordeal for your lady bits. Douching involves cleaning the inside of the vagina with a mixture of water, vinegar, and baking soda. Some say it’s the secret to feeling fresh and clean down there. But, is it really necessary? Let’s cut to the chase – douching is not your ticket to freshness. In fact, your cookie is pretty amazing at self-cleaning. Yes, you heard that right! Your body has a natural way of maintaining its balance and cleanliness even though sometimes things can get really wild down there. But it's time to do away with douching. I know you might be like “Girl, do you know what you're saying? I’ve heard that douching keeps everything clean down there.” We’ve heard it too but nobody tells you about the not-so-glamorous side of douching – the health risks. Douching can disrupt the delicate pH balance of your vagina, making you more susceptible to infections. It’s like inviting unwanted guests to a party that should be exclusive to your body’s natural defenses. From bacterial vaginosis (BV) to pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), douching has been linked to various health issues. It’s like opening Pandora’s box – you might think you’re solving a problem, but you’re creating a whole new set of challenges. Nobody wants to deal with unpleasant odors down there. But, here's the thing: douching is not the magical solution to maintaining freshness.
