Women who do this put their health at risk
Published on 4-08-2016 - at 01:49' by Elcrema

A study published in the journal Epidemiology has found that women who douche have double the risk of ovarian cancer.

Prior studies have linked douching to yeast infections, reduced fertility, pelvic inflammatory disease, but this is the first study to link douching to ovarian cancer.

Douching is the act of cleaning the vagina with scented sticks, sprays and other materials. The vagina is known to clean itself naturally and douching can cause an overgrowth of harmful bacteria.

The researchers followed more than 41,000 women in the United States and Puerto Rico during their research.

Many women who douche see it as a necessary part of good hygiene and this is wrong. Some women douche to prepare for s*x and to clean up after s*x but the researchers have warned women to discontinue this act as it interferes with nature’s balance.
