Vaginal douching - Definition


Definition


Vaginal douching is the introduction of pure water or of a water solution containing an antiseptic product, a medication, or vinegar, into the vagina. Vaginal douching may be performed with the aid of an enema syringe or pouch. Long used as a means of contraception, vaginal douching is now largely discouraged, even as a hygienic practice performed occasionally or every day. It disturbs the vaginal flora and can cause infections of the uterus or Fallopian tubes. Vaginal douching is suspected to increase the risk of ectopic pregnancy and female sterility.
