Dooshing

Were you looking for information about Douching? Dooshing is a common misspelling of douching.
Douching is a process of rinsing out the vagina by squirting water or other solutions into it. Although this practice has been around since ancient times, many healthcare providers do not recommend douching, as it may change the delicate chemical balance in the vagina. This change can make a woman more prone to bacterial infections, such as pelvic inflammatory disease or bacterial vaginosis.
