Vaginal douching

Douching is very common in some countries when women suffer from persistent vaginal bacterial or yeast infections. However douching can make the discomfort considerably worse. Harmful bacteria cannot be killed with vaginal douches. On the contrary, douches may destroy the natural colonies of lactobacilli and severely irritate the vaginal mucosa.
