    No. Douching is never a good idea. It won’t treat a yeast infection either. See your doctor or buy one of the OTC yeast treatments. Your pharmacist can recommend one.

  2. Wanda Ellis says:

    It sounds like a bad idea to me. Have you thought about using yogurt instead? That’s become a pretty common home remedy for yeast infections and it doesn’t hurt like heck or mess up the ph of your vagina. I’ve posted one link below but it’s been in women’s mags and is all over the net too.

    Yeast infections aren’t caused by poor hygiene. Sometimes they’re caused by over cleaning. If you kill the beneficial bacteria in your vagina the yeast will be able to thrive.

  3. Someoneorother says:

    Um, why would you? If it has sugar in it, keep it out of your vag. Just let your body do its natural thing, use proper hygiene…

    NO!!!! You’ll cause a reaction that makes the yeast rise and eventually ( 3 hours or so) you will give birth to a warm loaf of APPLE CIDER BREAD! For the sake of your unborn loaf plese don’t do it! Apple Cider Vagina Bread is NO BUENO!I have included a recipe for apple pie or something similar so you may enjoy with your HUMAN BABY not a LOAF OF BREAD!

    Some people do that and it is quite harsh. As far as a treatment for yeast, I would use this more mild method that I know is effective. I use a 2 quart douche ban and I put as hot of clean water as i can tolerate on my hand without burning or blistering and put that hot water in the douche. I douche with it and it kills the yeast by activating my own white blood cells with a localized fever.

    I’ve found that method most effective. Usually I douche morning, evening and the next morning and than no yeast is left.

    There are many available homemade cures that are out there. Check out http://www.curesforyeastinfection.com/article-homemade-yeast-infection-remedy-cure.php

    They have a list of homemade cures for yeast infection that are available.

    Never douche. It is harmful to the natural good bacteria that lives in your vagina. That bacteria fends off bad bacteria from getting into and setting up shop in your vagina and cause an infection. With out that good bacteria you will end up with more vaginal infections and bad smells. I am 25 years old and never douched or used feminine wipes and I have never had any vaginal infection. If you don’t believe me you can read this article:

    I know you might think, “They sell douches so they must be safe.” But that isn’t true. They sell a lot of things that are not safe. For example, they sold lead paint and that was very dangerous.

    First are you sure you have a yeast infection?

    “The symptoms of vaginal yeast infection include:

    * Vaginal itching that is often severe.
    * Vaginal discharge that is usually white, thick, clumpy, and odorless.
    * Red, irritated skin around the opening to the vagina (labia).
    * Pain while urinating when urine touches irritated skin.
    * Pain in the vagina during sexual intercourse.

    Symptoms of a vaginal yeast infection are more likely to occur during the week before a menstrual period.

    There are other conditions with similar symptoms, such as bacterial vaginosis or a sexually transmitted disease. Itching and redness of the vulva can also be caused by a reaction to vaginal products such as soap, bath oils, spermicidal jelly, or douches. If you are unfamiliar with your symptoms, see your doctor for an accurate diagnosis.”

    If you are still not sure you can go to the pharmacy and get a (over the counter) test and find out if you have an infection:

    (Although the other products they sell I consider unnecessary bad they are the only ones that make the test that I know of.)

    It’s about $17.

    And if you do have a yeast infection you can go to this website and in the top left corner there is a button labeled, ‘Treatment Finder’ and you can find which treatment would be best for you:

    http://www.monistat.com/

    They are around $12 to $20.

    And if you have an concerns you can always go to the doctor or gynecologist.

    But when this clears up I really suggest you wash your vulva and vaginal region with warm water in your shower. Your vagina is the original self cleaning oven. It knows what to do to keep itself clean.

    Good luck!
