Douche during your period?

Is there anything wrong with douching during your period? I am in pre-menopause, done having kids, hubby had a vasectomy years ago, I use to have horrible periods. I noticed if I douche one time on the first or second day the rest of the days only have a little spotting and no cramps. Seems like a good deal as long as there is no huge health risk.

Douching anytime is often not recommended. The vaginal tract has bacteria. Douching increases the risk of forcing this bacteria right up into the uterus. The result can be a uterine infection.

In addition to what Georgagail said, douching upsets the flora balance in the vagina and that can lead to infection, not just of the uterus but of the vagina as well.
