Default Natural Douche Alternatives

Are there any all natural alternatives for douching? If I were in the wilderness for an extended period of time would it be safe to use water? Or something else?

there are none, because doucheing is not natural!

Okay, well will something "natural" work in it's place?

All you should need to do is take a bath...

Douching changes the natural chemical balance of your vag. leading you to be more susceptible to bacterial infections. No bueno.

That's interesting. No one ever told me that! Momma always said I should do it, so I have for ages. Maybe that's why I get frequent yeast infections. Could douching be a factor?

I would say yes.

Here's a pretty good article on the subject (even though it's from an HIV/AIDS resource group): http://www.thebody.com/content/treat/art941.html

Quote:
The dangers of douching are threefold. First of all, douching can cause irritation and inflammation of vaginal tissues, which make it easier for STDs and HIV to set up shop in our bodies. Secondly, douching can actually cause an infection by disrupting the natural balance of bacteria and yeast in the vagina. [...] Thirdly, douching can complicate an existing infection, perhaps even to the point of serious health risk.

YOu should never ever douche...it is your body's way of empty your lady part. You mess up your natural ph balance. And yes that is why you get yeast infections. Stop douching, eat lots of plain yougurt with prebiotic cultures and drink 100% pure cranberry juice. In a couple months everything will be spring fresh on its own. Oh yeah, skip the thongs and wear 100% pure cotton panties so down there can breath. You may want to hand wash said undies with a mild baby soap too... regualar soap can irratate,

Douching will cause yeast infections. Instead, hand wash "down there" when you take a bath.

Douching isn't strictly necessary. Plain water externally is just fine. If you absolutely must douche, simple vinegar and water will do nicely.

Just so you all know, Lady Survival is Varmint Stalker. If you're replying to the original post, you're talking to a man, a lonely, strange man.

EXCUSE ME!

I don't know what the HELL you are talking about, but YOU are the one following me around my threads stalking me.

Get a clue and leave me alone. I'm asking legit questions and taking part in discussion. Just because you don't agree with my lifestyle or political views doesn't mean you need to be making baseless accusations. You have NO IDEA who I am.

F*ck off.

Wow! Rage much...Guns-an-Allah? And if by lifestyle you mean trolling internet forums under many, many identities, you're right, I don't agree with it.

DECLAN, you sir are going in my killfile. If you don't like my posts I'd suggest you do the same to me. I have no interest in talking to you. All you are doing is following me around and trying to give me a bad name because you don't agree with what I've said in a political thread.

Don't flatter yourself. I am not following you around. You just surface in all the wrong places...killer.

I wouldn't use anything- packaged or not. Douching can cause infection etc.

OK, I DO learn something every day. This um, cleaning method.... I didn't even know it existed. Do people also clean the inside their rectum? Just have to ask!

Oh I thought Varmintstalkers was female to begin with... Don't know what gave me that idea.

Vinegar... also and infusion of lythrum salicaria. Also possible is an infusion of usnea which is quite antibiotic. Usnea is very hard to misidentify and has a long history of external and internal antibiotic use.
