    I saw on The View today a woman (I guess she was a gynecologist or something like that) talking about mistakes women make with their vaginas. I was really surprised when she said that women don't need feminine hygiene products because the vagina is "self-cleaning" and that women should NEVER use them. So do those of you ladies here use douches and other such products? Were you always taught that women were supposed to or did you know it wasn't necessary?

    I heard that douches are really bad for a vagina because they dry it out. The same thing goes for continual use of enemas.

    The natural PH level of the vagina is supposed to be self regulating.

    But some things can throw it out of balance. Antibiotics can encourage candida yeast infections, and there are some women who are super sensitive with reactions to latex, douches, fem hygiene products, tampons, even to semen.

    There is a natural womanly vaginal scent that is healthy and is not offensive or "fishy". Sexy IMHO. However there is a huge industry (Proctor & Gamble) that depends on convincing women that the plumbing needs chemical tuneups and we fall for it. We have to unlearn the propaganda.

    I was taught that those products were unnecessary and just cause problems. Any offensive odor would be the sign of a problem.

    RIght you are, Rawbone and Wonderland!

    One thing I do want to say however is that women should not be shamed or embarassed if they do happen to develop one of these infections. THe mind automatically turns to this person being unclean. promiscuous, and a variety of unflattering terms. It is a PH BALANCE disturbance. Hormonal shifts, antibiotics, steroids, stress, washing toooo much, allergic reactions, perfumes, too much sugar in the diet. Un diagnosed diabetes, all of these things can set them off. Believe me, most women know if something doesnt smell right before you do! LOL! In past threads I have heard all sorts of theories as to why this occurs and most of them have not been nice. Please dont let our ignorance ruin relationships or others feelings.

    All those hygiene products are bad
    for the health of a woman's vagina.

    The only thing you need is a bar of
    Dove soap and a couple of fingers.
    Wash inside with soapy fingers and
    I assure you, you will smell sweet as
    a rose.

    I've been using Dove soap for quite
    a number of years and it works
    perfectly for me. The soap is very
    gentle and doesn't dry you out or
    sting delicate tissues.
