Don’t Forget to Read Up on Potential Risks
Like any method utilized, especially in a woman’s intimate area, there are risks involved. Although minor, the following should be taken into consideration before ultimately choosing Yoni steaming as a new method of choice.
Could kill off good bacteria- Believe it or not ladies, our Vibes are one part of the body that practices self-cleaning. Cool, right?
When there is an outside cleaning agent involved such as Vibe steaming or douching, then there is a risk of eliminating most bacteria - including the good kind. If there are no good bacteria left, then this puts the intimate area at risk for possible infection.
Temperature is too high- There’s nothing worse than an uncomfortable burn, especially down there. If the temperature feels a little too hot for comfort, then adjust it immediately as this could cause burns and create more harm than good.
This method is meant to be comfortable and relaxing, so don’t settle for anything less!
Don’t Take Part if the Body is Going Through These Actions
Most times are appropriate to participate in Yoni steaming. However, these are a few select times that medical professionals have advised to avoid this practice in order to protect the body’s overall health. The following are situations where women should take extra caution or refrain from steaming entirely, so they aren’t rendering more harm than good on their bodies.
Monthly Menstruation (menses)- Since the practice increases healthy blood flow, these effects could take place while a woman is on her period. To prevent heavy bleeding, avoid during the prime days of the cycle.
Pregnancy- The herbal steam actually has the capability to open up the cervix, which may result in early delivery of a baby or even a miscarriage, so be careful!
Open Sores- While this practice does aid in relief of damage to the uterus, it shouldn’t be utilized while the wounds are fresh as it could end up making them worse.
Take caution, and don’t use while the body may be most vulnerable.
Intrauterine Device (IUD)- An IUD is placed in the upper part of the Vibe, and the steam has a habit of relaxing the entire area. Avoid using the steam at the time an IUD is present because it could actually shift the tool’s location or make it fall out completely.
Our Final Thoughts
Yoni steaming, or any type of vaginal steaming, has been around and safely used for years. Since there are so many amazing benefits associated with this type of method on a woman’s intimate area, why not give it a try? It just may be the transformative experience you’re looking to add to your regular feminine care routine.
The risks simply do not outweigh the benefits here. So, definitely explore your steaming options and refresh your Vibe regimen!
