How Douching Can Cause Infertility

Pregnancy Over 40, Fertility Over 40 Affected By Douching

Douching has always been a big mystery to me. I've never done it and frankly I wouldn't even know how.
My site: www.getpregnantover40.com
 Well, it's probably a good thing I never did because according to the site below, it can cause a number of problems which could lead to infertility. Read more:

From the site:

Is douching safe?

Most doctors and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) recommend that women don't douche. Douching can change the delicate balance of vaginal flora (organisms that live in the vagina) and acidity in a healthy vagina. One way to look at it is in a healthy vagina there are both good and bad bacteria.
The balance of the good and bad bacteria help maintain an acidic environment. Any changes can cause an over growth of bad bacteria which can lead to a yeast infection or bacterial vaginosis. Plus, if you have a vaginal infection, douching can push the bacteria causing the infection up into the uterus, fallopian (fuh-LOH-pee-uhn) tubes, and ovaries.

What are the dangers linked to douching?

Research shows that women who douche regularly have more health problems than women who don't. Doctors are still unsure whether douching causes these problems. Douching may simply be more common in groups of women who tend to have these issues. Health problems linked to douching include:

Vaginal irritation
Bacterial vaginosis (vaj-uh-NOH-suhs) (BV)
Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID)

Some STIs, BV, and PID can all lead to serious problems during pregnancy. These include infection in the baby, problems with labor, and early delivery.

Getting Pregnant Naturally At 46

I found this very encouraging story about a woman who had previously had a tubal ligation, then had it reversed at the age of 45 and had a baby at age 46! 


I would be honored to have you share my story. I was really inspired to have my tubal reversal at 45 years old, primarily, because of the wonderful postings I read on your message boards. I read them on a daily basis before my procedure and continued to do so after my surgery.

Chapel Hill Tubal Reversal Center has the best website for tubal ligation reversal surgery, and more importantly, about how women feel about the reversal process, that I have seen.

I sincerely hope my success story (giving birth 3 months before my 47th birthday) will be a source of inspiration to others. I hope the women over 40 years old will read it and continue to have faith miracles can still happen, even after 45...

...Comment About Tubal Reversal for “Older” Women from Gary Berger, MD

Dawne’s testimonial is particularly appreciated for the hope she brings to other women in their forties who want to become pregnant after having a tubal ligation. When I listen to the stories these women tell me at their preoperative consultations, it seems that many – and perhaps most – doctors are discouraging to them. Most of the women age 40 and over say that they have been advised by their doctors that only IVF using the eggs of younger women (donors) can offer them hope of success. While it is true that donor egg IVF has a high pregnancy rate, this option is not acceptable to many couples who prefer to try to have their own biological children. My view on this is that as long as a woman in menstruating and ovulating, there is the possibility of having another child after a tubal reversal procedure. The decision is a highly personal one that should be made by each couple based on accurate information and informed consent about the potential benefits, risks, and costs of tubal ligation reversal vs donor egg IVF.
