Now that I'm pregnant do I need to stop using douches??

 

DDT - February 3

Simply said YES-"Regular v____al douching changes the delicate chemical balance of the v____a and can make a woman more susceptible to infections. Douching can introduce new bacteria into the v____a which can spread up through the cervix, uterus, and fallopian tubes. Researchers have found that women who douche regularly experience more v____al irritations and infections such as bacterial vaginosis, and an increased number of s_xually transmitted diseases. Furthermore, regular users of v____al douches face a 73% greater risk of developing pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) -- a chronic condition that can lead to infertility, or even death, if left untreated. Bacterial vaginosis and PID can have serious adverse affects on pregnancy including infections in the baby, labor problems, and preterm delivery. For these reasons, douching is no longer recommended as a safe or healthy way to routinely clean the v____a. The only safe and healthy way to clean the v____a is to let the v____a clean itself. The delicate chemical balance of the v____a is very sensitive and easily disrupted by routine v____al douching."

YES!! There is no need to douch at all, but definately NOT during pregnancy as DDT said it can introduce bacteria and cause an infection causing problems!! The v____a cleans itself...
