Were you looking for information about Douche? Deuche is a common misspelling of douche.
Some women may douche to clean the vagina after sex, rinse away blood after a menstrual cycle, or reduce odors. Douching is a process that involves rinsing or cleaning out the vagina by squirting water or other solutions into it. However, because douching can change the chemical balance in the vagina, many healthcare providers typically do not recommend it. Douching can make a woman more prone to bacterial infections, spread existing vaginal infections up into the pelvic organs, or possibly cause problems with fertility.
