WE ARE HERE to answer you
Each question corresponds to a need. That is why it is worth answering it.
When can I do a vaginal douche?
Rinsing and cleansing the vaginal mucosa with special devices can be done whenever you need to get rid of annoying secretions and odors, relieve symptoms such as itching and burning sensation or want to enhance the feeling of comfort and rejuvenation of the area.
Why is vaginal washing beneficial? Why avoid home-made solutions? Why avoid antiseptic solutions for vaginal washing?
Applying vaginal douches is beneficial (when the conditions of use are met) as they enhance and accelerate the ability of the vagina to self-cleanse, freeing it from bleeding residues, normal or abnormal secretions while relieving discomfort such as itching, irritation, burning or unpleasant odors.
When their application precedes the application of other intravaginal preparations, they maximize the effectiveness of their action, contributing substantially to the successful therapeutic management of pathological conditions.
Intravaginal application of home-made solutions is best avoided mainly due to the unstable content of their composition as well as the non-specific devices commonly used, which favor injuries, the transport of pathogenic microorganisms to the cervix and uterus and the possibility of re-infection.
Respectively, when there is no specific etiology, strong antiseptic agents should be avoided, which negatively affect the normal flora and the integrity of the vaginal mucosa.
How often can I do a vaginal douche?
The frequency of vaginal douches depends on the reason for their use.
Under normal conditions where the application of vaginal washing is aimed at maintaining the hygiene and comfort of the area, the repetition of the application is recommended no more often than every 3 days.
When there are special reasons e.g. removal of bleeding, leukorrhea or relief of irritation, the application can be repeated once a day for 2 to 3 consecutive days or depending on the recommendation of the attending physician.
Why should I not use the same vaginal douche more than once?
Vaginal douches should be performed under conditions of maximum hygiene so as not to increase the likelihood of vaginal imbalance, which can lead to serious infections. Especially in cases where the vaginal lavage is performed to relieve the symptoms of a vaginitis, repeated use of the same device may lead to re-infection due to contamination of the device or solution.
In which cases are vaginal washings not preferred?
Vaginal douches are not recommended in cases where there is no complete sexual intercourse or during pregnancy. Exceptions are the cases where there is a recommendation of the gynecologist.
Why is it important to get significant amounts of lactic acid in the vagina at any age?
Lactic acid is the factor that shapes the acidic environment in the vagina.
During reproductive age it is released by the lactic acid bacteria of the normal vaginal flora after the metabolism of the glycogen they use as food. The acidic vaginal environment is pleasant and enhances the action of lactobacilli while at the same time limiting the growth of other pathogenic microorganisms.
However, beyond the reproductive age, such as during menopause, maintaining acidic conditions in the vagina can be a means of preventing infections. At this stage of a woman's life, vaginal pH regulators that provide ready-made lactic acid and directly form the required acidity in the vagina can help immediately.
The area of my vagina presents an intense itching, irritation and a burning sensation. What may it be?
Pruritus (itching), irritation and burning sensation are clinical manifestations that can be observed in conditions of different etiology in the vaginal area. They are usually observed in cases of infection of various etiologies that coexist there with increased vaginal secretions with or without odor. The presence of these symptoms without the presence of hypersecretion may be due to the occurrence of vaginal dryness.
In any case, the correct and safe diagnosis and treatment is performed only through the gynecologist after a series of diagnostic tests (colposcopy, vaginal discharge culture, etc.), a practice that is recommended to follow every time you notice changes in the wider area.
