Steaming the va gina actually does a lot more harm than good!
It’s not uncommon to see ladies ‘steam the va gina’ to get it to ‘smell nice’, ‘keep it good shape’ and generally ‘cleanse it’! Some ladies even go as far as sticking things into it or diluting the hot water (steam) with herbs and more to ‘clean it inside out’ but it’s time to stop!
The vagina is self cleansing so there’s usually no need to overly clean it! The vagina restores its own PH balance all by itself meaning even soaps especially perfumed/scented/medicated should not be used on it. It’s best cleansed with water (and to go the extra mile with very mild soap)
A lot of ladies sit of steam usually mixed with antiseptic and others to cleanse the vagina and the uterus inside out, more like a steam douche on the vagina which many ladies believe help balance the vagina PH/hormone level but it’s not true.
