Can I douche to clean inside my vagina?

Can I douche to clean inside my vagina?

Douching itself: Douching is not necessary to "clean" the vagina as it is like a "self cleaning oven". The more you disrupt the normal vaginal fluids that keep the ph (aciditiy/alkalinity) balance constant the more you set yourself up for serious vaginal infections or worse. So, please stop the practice. ...Read more

PH: I would ask the gynecologist to perform a ph test. If your vagina is more alkaline, a raise in ph would do this, then then it's possible your vagina is not populated with the lactobacilli that it needs to be populated with. Given that there's swelling the vagina must be reacting to something. Sometimes the test we perform our falsely negative. Good luck. ...Read more

Just the outside: The outside is the vulva and can be be gently washed during baths and showers. The inside is the vagina. Vaginas are not meant to be washed. That means washing vaginas is not natural, and can mess up the inside, balanced conditions of a vagina. It's nice to have good hygiene, but know that vaginas are "self-cleaning".

Vaginal "freshness"?: The best method of cleansing the vulva is to wash with a mild soap such as Dove, Caress, or Ivory ONLY on the outside. The vagina itself is self-cleaning, unless infected because it has a pH "balancing bacteria" if it is not disturbed. Please leave all the "vaginal freshness" products such as douches and sprays on the shelf of the pharmacy, otherwise you will be seeing your MD more often. ...Read more
