Even though women’s health groups strongly recommend not douching, the product is still sold and remains on store shelves. The demand for this product shows that there is still the desire for freshness but with no new method to achieve it. This internal invasion of douching on the body causes more irritation than the 10 – 15 minutes of freshness received. The mucus created by the vagina protects it and maintains the proper pH level for optimum health. It is natural for this mucus to have a slight scent. What ever happened to using fresh water to clean the vaginal folds where most of the odours occur? Even if cleaning with fresh water is done excessively, no harm is done. Ah, but how do you get the water to go and swirl in an upward motion so you can cleanse? I found the peri bottle to be a waste of time, since it just squirted on the exterior unless I used my fingers to pull back the lips, which was, very uncomfortable. That’s why the 2lip cup was invented. The soft silicone cup holds enough water for a proper cleanse, and with easy maneuvering you can bring it to the proper position. A quick, soft upward motion allows the water to push up and cleanse. I use this every time after I urinate, since it just makes me feel clean and there are no irritating consequences.
