According to many scientists in the United States, douching, which is practiced by many women who think it makes them feel cleaner, could be really dangerous.
Douching is the practice of squirting water into your vagina. According to one study, 29% of 232 women admitted that they regularly apply this practice, and 57% of them said they never did it. According to many researches, douching is tightly linked with cervical cancer, reduced fertility, fungal infections.
This practice can cause serious health problems. Women often do not experience any symptoms of ovarian cancer until the disease progresses to the last stage.
The link between ovarian cancer and douching is even stronger now that the scientists have only studied women who did not have cancer genes in the family.
