Growing up, our moms always had a douche bag laying around, and no I’m not talking about our dads. So mom votes yes to keeping the inside clean, and doctors vote … NO … ??? How confusing is that, and what’s a girl to do!?
Dr. Alexandra Simotas, Board Certified, Obstetrics and Gynecology says, “Regular vaginal douching changes the delicate chemical balance of the vagina and can make a woman more susceptible to infections. Douching can introduce new bacteria into the vagina which can spread up through the cervix, uterus and fallopian tubes. Researchers have found that women who douche regularly experience more vaginal irritations and infections such as bacterial vaginosis, and an increased number of sexually transmitted diseases.”
But if you’re anything like the modern woman, although you have respect for the doc, you’re careful not to rest on that advice merely because the M.D. says it. You’ve got to see the proof for yourself to know. So here’s the logic we follow here at SweetSpot Labs. There’s a potential danger if you do, and there are no repercussions if you don’t. (How do you think Great Grammy did alright?)
The main reason women are concerned with this debate at all is mostly because of the problematic odor. So we’ve go the perfect solution. Risk free and fun too. It starts with SweetSpot gentle wash for external use only. That alone will do the job, but you’ve always got the Balancing Mist to spray on later while you’re chillin’ at home. And there’s always on-the-go wipettes for the times you’re out with your friends or on a date with the one you love.
Dr. Alexandra says, “Now, if you have trust issues, and you don’t trust anyone, at least trust your vagina. It knows what it’s doing–I promise.”
