Perfect place and position to vaginal douche?
« on: August 25, 2021, 10:04:10 am »
Hi everyone

To those whom the doctor recommended to use a vaginal douche regularly, where and how do you proceed?

Lying on the bed / sofa?
In the shower / bathtub, while standing?
In the shower / bathtub while sitting?

Best wishes

even if you don't want to,
then you love him.

Definitely in the shower!!!!!
My doctor did not recommend daily or very frequent douching.

Thank you for your answer.

Dear Margrit:
I usually stand but in one of my showers at home I do have a small bench build into the shower stall so "sometimes" I sit but not often.
Obviously one needs to do what is comfortable for them.
HUGS,
Danielle

Most definitely, only douche when you need to, not all the time and not too frequently. Use clean water and a clean fountain syringe or better yet, just buy the disposable type at your local drug store or super market. Use it once and be done with it for a while.

As for where you can douche, you can douche anywhere you wish to make a watery mess below you.  ;D

Seriously, in the shower or tub is really the only good place that I have found to douche. I usually stand up, but bend my knees a little to make my vagina a little more accesable. If you wish, the shower stool or the side rail of the tub is also acceptable.

I also do it while standing in the shower. Only sometimes I am sitting..
How often do you do it?
Do you do use some lube for to insert it?

I love that feeling of to be clean everywhere. I mean it is skin and skin needs to be cleaned and nursed.
My doctor said to me, it is up to my how often I would like to vaginal douche…

I use the disposable vinegar douche. Use it once and then through the plastic bottle away. The tip is pre lubed, so I do not need any additional lube.

How often? Once every month or two. I do not have any vaginal problems to speak of.

I’m 7 months post-op so I’m still dilating 2x daily. Right now, I’m douching every 2-3 days. I stand in the shower, and I do use a bit of lube. I use the syringe / plastic tube given to me by my surgeon, which I clean after every use. And I use a homemade 50% distilled vinegar solution. These were all things that were recommended by my surgeon.

I would assume that when I’m through my intense dilating regiment, I will move to a weekly douche.

Hi,

I only douche as directed my my doctor when I had an issue. The issue was a small hair in the back of my vagina from dilating.

Sarah,

Please check with your surgeon again about the 50% vinegar solution. Most women douche with a solution of one or two  tablespoonful in a cup of water.

That is great for you. :)

I love that feeling of to be clean everywhere and so I douche Vaginal daily while i take a shower. It is skin and skin needs to be cleaned and nursed, but that is just my understanding.

Vinegar? Why?
Does a vinegar solution not leave a unpleasant odor?

Dilute vinegar is used for a douche because it is mildly acidic and prevents bacteria from growing in your vagina. You can also use a dilute solution of povidone - iodine solution, but this is mainly used for a more serious infection. I would only douche with povidone - iodine when my doctor requests I use this douche. Otherwise, I use a commercial preparation of dilute vinegar solution. The commercial preparations use distilled vinegar, which does not have any odor that I can detect.

Thank you so much for your explain. That’s interesting.
My doctor told me i should do it  with water and that works perfectly well for me. Next time i go to see him, i will ask about the vinegar.
