Steaming your private part also known as vaginal steaming is not a recommended practice as it is not backed by science. This practice may lead to yeast infections and burns. Warm water and a gentle, pH-balanced soap are best at cleaning your vulva and maintaining intimate hygiene.
Vaginal steaming or yoni steam has many side effects, one of which is abnormal discharge among other symptoms such as itching, swelling and infections.
Vaginal steaming is an ancient practice and is believed to cleanse the vagina and uterus, regulate menstruation, and ease period cramps and bloating. However, there is no scientific evidence to prove these claims. On the other hand, vaginal steaming could be harmful as one may sustain burns during the process. The steam and herbs could also disrupt the pH balance of your vagina and cause infections.
