In brief: Not really
Douching is not recommended.
It kills off the natural bacteria that protects and cleans the vagina by maintaining normal pH balance. Douching sets you up for frequent yeast infections and bacterial vaginosis.

In brief: Not needed
Vaginal douching can alter the natural pH of the vagina rendering you susceptible to vaginal infections.
Theoretically can push bacterias into the cervix and uterus as well.
