Can Douching Prevent Pregnancy?

When douching, a woman pours a solution of water mixed with soap, vinegar, iodine or other chemicals into a squeezable bottle with a long neck. The neck is inserted into the vagina and the fluid pushed up inside. This is usually done in the shower or tub area so as not to make a mess. Most douches today are found premixed and are sold in most grocery and drug stores.

Because of the way douching forces fluid into the vagina, it should never be used as a method of birth control. Sperm are extremely fast swimmers and most have likely made it through the cervix and into the uterus before you have even thought of sitting up to go douche. Even if you had it by the bedside and ran to the bathroom, it would probably be too late. In fact, douching can actually push sperm into the uterus and towards the fallopian tubes faster.

But in the worst case, not only can sperm be pushed further up toward the uterus, but so can all types of bacteria and viruses, including those which can cause STDs (sexually transmitted diseases). Resulting infections of the uterus and fallopian tubes, called PID(pelvic inflammatory disease), can cause scarring of the tubes and can lead to ectopic pregnancy (pregnancy in the tubes). This makes it impossible to get pregnant without assistance from a fertility center.

Some women are taught to douche to keep themselves clean down there, when in reality the vagina is one of the cleanest parts of the female's body because it cleans itself out everyday with its natural lubrication. The white/clear discharge that a woman finds in her underwear or on the toilet paper is from the vagina cleaning itself out. Once a douche is used, it can disrupt the natural environment of the vagina, removing the normal discharge and preventing the self-cleaning action.

I know that many of you douche anyway, even knowing all these facts, because I talk to the women I see in my office everyday. Many of you are concerned about odors that are impossible to get rid of. But, douching can just make it worse, as it removes the natural bacteria that clean and help keep the vagina odor-free.

Thankfully, there is a natural way to cleanse inside the vagina without traditional douches and harsh chemicals …..and which many women are now starting to use.

The new WaterWorks system is the only FDA-cleared natural way to cleanse inside your vagina. It will not remove the natural bacteria or make you more susceptible to yeast and bacterial infections. This is a reusable device that uses only plain tap water and that can be used in the privacy of your shower as many times a week as you wish.

The secret is in the medical grade stainless steel nozzle that is designed to fit easily into the vagina, while the water gently sprinkles out to rinse out semen, blood or discharge. The reaction that takes place between the water, stainless steel and vaginal mucosa effectively removes unwanted odor. Please note that, like traditional douches, WaterWorks does not prevent pregnancy.

So, dismiss the old idea that douching can prevent pregnancy. Continue to use proven birth control methods. But, leave the cleaning to WaterWorks. It's the only proven, natural, drug-free and chemical free way to rid yourself of unwanted feminine odors.
