Douching in Pregnancy


Do not douche unless it is prescribed by your doctor. If your doctor does prescribe a douche to treat an infection or other problem, be sure you follow these guidelines to avoid the risk of introducing air into your vagina and causing a life-threatening air embolism:

Do not use a bulb syringe. Only use a douche bag and hold it no more than 2 feet above the nozzle in order to keep the water pressure lowDo not insert the tip farther than 1 inch past the entrance of the vaginaHold the labia open to allow for free flow of the fluid
