Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Hi i read your question and googled it. here is what I found:http://www.parents.com/pregnancy/my-body/is-it-safe/douching-while-pregnant/i would still recommend talking to your doctor about your feelings; need to use a douche during your pregnancy because they will have the best answer and most relevant information

I've always read/been told douching isn't okay at any time. Our bodies have it's own natural way of taking care of itself. But if you are really wanting too, I'd ask your doctor first.

I would not advise it, personally I don't agree with douching at all. Your body can clean itself, douching will only take out the good bacteria and leave you vulnerable to infection.

Not a good idea, pregnant or not!

nope. it kills even the good bacteria which can astill cause an infection. and if something is wrong down there douching pushes the problem in to ur uterus
