Douching and Female Infertility

Introduction: Douching and Female Infertility

Douching is a common practice in which a woman washes out the inside of the vagina. Douching is associated with a variety of reproductive health problems that can lead to infertility including a higher risk of vaginal irritation and infection, sexually transmitted diseases, and pelvic inflammatory disease.

Douching products are available over-the-counter and include a spray bottle with a nozzle that allows a woman irrigate the vagina with water or a mixture of water and vinegar, baking soda, or iodine. Douching for any reason, including cleansing, is not recommended unless prescribed by a health care provider for a specific medical condition.
