Can you tell me if there are expiration dates on douches?

Yes: The manufacturers of these apply an expiration date which you can usually find on the packages. Sometimes these are tricky codes and hard to interpret. If the package is unopened and is a dry powder, you do not have to worry about these dates. Liquids may be used if clear and unopened.
