How to douche correctly?
To begin with, it must be clarified that douching is a medical procedure that only a doctor can prescribe. And usually it is carried out 2 times a day – in the evening and in the morning. The opinion that douching with herbs is necessary for daily hygiene is erroneous – the body of a healthy woman does not need anything like that.
How to douche with medicinal herbs?
Douching with chamomile and other medicinal herbs for inflammatory diseases often gives better results than chemical preparations from a pharmacy. So, how to properly douche a woman with an infusion of herbs: chamomile, calendula and others? First we make a decoction. To do this, pour the grass with boiling water and bring to a boil over low heat. Douching is done with a decoction cooled to a temperature of 37-38 ° C. For such a decoction, two tablespoons of chamomile are taken per liter of water or 2 tablespoons for the same amount of water. spoons of chamomile and one tbsp. a spoonful of calendula
Good results are obtained by a decoction prepared according to the following recipe. We take 50 g of knotweed grass, 30 g of chamomile and nettle, 10 g of oak bark and mix. Pour two tablespoons of this composition with a liter of boiling water and simmer for about 5 minutes over low heat. Pour the finished composition into a rubber bulb with a tip and inject the solution into the vagina, avoiding strong pressure. Straining the muscles of the vagina, we retain the solution inside as much as possible. Repeat these steps until the solution runs out. For the procedure to be successful, you need to choose the right posture for it. This is either a position lying on the bottom of the bath with legs laid along its edges, or a position standing on half-bent legs with the body slightly tilted forward.
How to douche with soda?
It is recommended to douche with soda for thrush or for conception, we will now consider how to do it correctly. To begin with, it must be said that douching with soda to increase the success of conception is really recommended. But this is done in the case when both partners are healthy, and the doctor cannot name the reason why the couple cannot have a child. In this case, an assumption is made about the increased acidity of the vagina, and in this case douching with soda is prescribed. We dissolve 1 teaspoon of soda in 1/2 liter of warm water and a woman needs to douche half an hour before sexual contact with this solution.
Also, this procedure is often practiced with thrush. For these purposes, we make a solution of 1 liter of water and 1 teaspoon of soda. After the procedure, the syringe must be disinfected with potassium permanganate.
What other drugs are used for douching?
With thrush and inflammatory diseases, it is often recommended to douche with drugs such as chlorhexidine, citeal and chlorophyllipt, only a doctor should talk about their correct use and doses. Here we give only approximate solutions of these drugs. Chlohexidine is diluted with purified boiled water to 0.02%. Cyteal is used undiluted, but after a couple of minutes the vagina is washed several times with water or diluted with water in a ratio of 1:10. Chlorophyllipt is diluted in the proportion of 1 tablespoon of the drug per 1 liter of water.
Often ladies are interested in how to properly douche with hydrogen peroxide or potassium permanganate. You can forget about potassium permanganate in general – you can’t douche with it, you’ll only do harm. Potassium permanganate should only be used to disinfect the syringe after each use. As for hydrogen peroxide, douching is still prescribed for her, but gynecologists have recently prescribed this procedure less and less. Therefore, if your gynecologist has not prescribed douching with peroxide, then it is better not to experiment. If there is an appointment, but the recipe is lost (or, which often happens, you cannot make it out), then use 1 teaspoon of 3% peroxide diluted in 1 liter of water for douching. Douching with peroxide is done no more than once a day.
