A group of Texas students was surveyed by the Journal of Adolescent Health about douching, and I for one, am SHOCKED at the number of young women still surfing the Massengill wave. 55% of students reported douching at least once, while 30% douched monthly and 20% douched weekly. More disturbing is the fact that 22% of girls surveyed thought douching would help prevent sexually transmitted infections. Don't these ladies know that douching is not recommended by most health care professionals? [Our Bodies, Our Blog]
