Most doctors and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) suggest that women steer clear of douching.
All healthy vaginas contain some bacteria and other organisms called the vaginal flora.
The normal acidity of the vagina keeps the amount of bacteria down.
But douching can change this delicate balance.
This may make a woman more prone to vaginal infections.
Plus, douching can spread existing vaginal infections up into the uterus, fallopian tubes, and ovaries.
Research shows that women who douche regularly have more health problems than women who do not.
I hope this information helps you to understand why douching is not good for you!

none it is not healthy to douch. it not only kills bad bacteria but good bacteria and bad bacteria grows back faster than good bacteria. you do not want to change your flora. just shower and use mild soap if you fee you need to. water is all you should need.Source(s): RN
