STOP THE PRESS… ladies; YOUR VAGINA CLEANS ITSELF!
Now, understanding the above does not mean it is OK to skip on daily showers and/or baths, it simply means; to douche, is not necessary.
In fact, douching can cause more trouble than it’s worth…
The New National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences study conducted in the US, is actually the first of its kind to outright link ovarian cancer to douching.
In fact, the study claims; women that douche are twice as likely to suffer from cancer of the ovaries, than those that don’t.
More worryingly, ovarian cancer is also known as a silent killer because an individual may not display any symptoms until the cancer is advanced.
Aside from cancer, douching can also cause yeast infections as a result of the overgrowth of harmful bacteria.
Whilst most women that do douche believe doing so is a crucial part of their hygiene regime, it is definitely time to re-educate and allow women to understand ways of maintaining themselves without the risk!
