Can douching cause yeast infections?

I don’t think it can. I’ve read some reports on the internet that women who douche frequently that had an association with that and recurring yeast infections, but I think it all depends how you douche and what you do the douching with. If you do it properly with tea tree oil or apple cider vinegar, you shouldn’t really find this to be a cause of yeast infections.

I’ve written extensively on this in Chapter 5 of my book. There are many different types of vaginal cleansing protocols and douches you can read in Chapter 5 and also in Chapter 4; I’ve written extensively about this.

So douching shouldn’t really cause yeast infections as such. And if you find they don’t go away, then you need to get checked out. If in doubt; check it out. You’re doing something wrong.

So I hope that answers your question. Thanks for your question.
