The answer to this question does not lie on the surface, but if you start digging, you will realize that it is not so easy to find it in the depths. And all because there is no unequivocal answer, and different considerations on this matter are very diverse.
Let's start with the fact that, in addition to indications, this treatment method, like many others, has contraindications. Among them, the period of menstruation, the first weeks after the abortion or childbirth, some diseases and also pregnancy. You can find different formulations of the prohibition to carry out douching to future mothers: it is forbidden, contraindicated, not recommended, it is better not to spend and so on. But they all boil down to one thing - you can not.
Why not? - Many pregnant women are interested. After all, treatment during this period is ineffective - the thrush again and again resumes. And often it does not disappear at all. Why not syringe during pregnancy?
Here you can hear a lot of interesting, funny and even scary. Certainly there are people who will tell you that even cunnilingus is forbidden during pregnancy, and you can still die from it. And all because the cervix penetrates (or can penetrate) the air.
Another version is water. Together with the flow of water, which flushes the infection from the vagina, pathogens can get to the fetus, which is fraught with intrauterine infection. And although it is proved that the mucous plug securely protects the child from any intrusion from outside, you still do not want to take risks.
This explanation of the prohibition on douching during pregnancy is more plausible: during the procedure, the natural microflora of the vagina is washed out and its protective functions are significantly weakened, which is fraught with the development of various infections. But if you plan to douch exactly because of the already present disease, then it is unlikely to stop you.
Anyway, and in the society the opinion has taken root that douching during the period of gestation can lead to a miscarriage. Actually, many doctors categorically prohibit this method of treatment for their pregnant wards. But there are some who even prescribe a course of douching for future mothers. In this case, as a rule, it does not exceed five days.
- per 1 l of warm boiled water - 1 tablespoon with a slide of baking soda;
- for 1 liter of boiling water - 1 tablespoon of white acacia flowers (insist 2 hours);
- for 1 liter of boiling water - 1 tablespoon of St. John's wort, chamomile and marigold (insist in a thermos for 1 hour) and others.
To treat the thrush in this way, different treatment solutions are used:
If your gynecologist has prescribed douching for you as a cure, this may be appropriate. But if you do not trust the doctor, it is better to consult a few more.
If you decide to douche during pregnancy, strictly observe all hygiene standards and be extremely cautious. Enter the fluid under the minimum head. And in general, ask about all the subtleties of the procedure for your gynecologist - let him tell you how to properly douche during pregnancy.
