25% of women in the whole world use douching in order to clean the vagina, even though the vagina cleans itself. This fact increases the risk of ovarian cancer. A lot of researches showed that and moreover it is confirmed that douching the vagina causes vaginal infections, which appears to be serious problem too.
Joelle Brown, an epidemiologist, says that it is time for all women to stop douching their vagina and also urges women not to evaporate their vagina with irrigator.
There are no symptoms when it comes to ovarian tumor. A recent analysis of a study published in the Epidemiology journal that followed more than 41 000 women in the USA and Puerto Rico since 2013. The women were aged 35-74, and had a sister suffering from breast cancer. At the beginning of the study, none subject was suffering from any type of cancer.
In the year of 2014, 154 subjects were diagnosed with this disease. While was the beginning of this study, all those women who used douching for their vagina, doubled the risk of getting ovarian cancer. Moreover, the link was even stronger among women who had a family history of the disease.
The researcher Clarice Veinberg from the Environmental Health Research says that there’s no reason to use douching, and many against. The vagina cleans itself naturally and squirting anything inside disrupts the natural balance and causes bacterial infections that can damage your reproductive health, so this is a fact that almost every woman knows, but keeps going with using this thing. However, women on the age of 15-44 still use this method.
Never use perfumes to clean your vagina. All you need is warm water and soup and this is the best way to keep it healthy and not harmed.
