Douching to Eliminate Vaginal Odor

Douching is probably the best-known and most-often tried remedy for vaginal odor. But does it really work?

Vaginal douching can be an effective remedy for vaginal odor, but you must be very careful about what you introduce into your vagina. Believe it or not, the vagina has a very sensitive “ecosystem” all its own, and douching can upset the PH balance your body works so hard to maintain. Some kinds of douche can kill off the “good bacteria,” while still leaving you with an odor problem. Others may simply flush unwanted bacteria residing in your vagina into your uterus or fallopian tubes, creating a much larger and more harmful problem.

Your best bet is to consult your doctor. If he or she is able to rule out infection as a cause for your unwanted smell, and recommends a douche for your vaginal odor , then by all means, give it a try. Just be sure to use a sterile product, and follow your doctor’s directions to the letter.
