If you've heard steaming can make bacterial vaginosis worse or that doctors don’t recommend it, you’re not alone. But don't worry, we're here to set the record straight and show you how steaming can be a game-changer for your health. With real stories and expert tips, you’ll get the lowdown on why steaming is totally worth it and how to make it work for you.

What You'll Learn

  • Myth #1: Why steaming can't cause worsening of BV.
  • Myth #2: You can just use any combination of herbs. 
  • Myth #3: No doctors ever recommend v steaming
  • Real Stories: Hear from women who’ve seen amazing results and swear by steaming.

Myth #1: "Steaming Made My Bacterial Vaginosis Worse"

So you steams and now you notice a greenish, smelly discharge. We know, it’s super concerning! But here's the tea: if you've just started vaginal steaming and see that unpleasant discharge, it’s not because the steam is making your BV worse. Think of it like this: when you're in a hot shower and your nose gets all runny, it's not because the shower gave you a cold. It's helping to clear the congestion, right? The same goes for vaginal steaming.

The steam works its magic by helping to draining the mucus that's been sitting in your vaginal canal, cervix, or uterus. If green discharge shows up after a steam session, it's actually a sign that the steam is doing its job, encouraging all that gunk to leave your body. So, instead of worrying, give your body a pat on the back for kicking those bad vibes (and bacteria) out.

Testimonial Time: Tina says, "I was so freaked out when I saw extra discharge after my first steam. But then I learned it's actually a good sign excess mucus and bacteria is being removed from my body! After steaming a few more times to remove all the discharge my BV is hasn't returned!"

Product Recommendation: Try our Yoni Reset Suppositories alongside your steaming routine for an extra boost in fighting off bad bacteria.

Myth #2: "Steaming Didn't Work for Me"

Okay, real talk. If you’ve tried steaming and didn’t get the results you wanted, there could be a few reasons why. For instance, the discharge or cramps you experienced after steaming were just your body's way of clearing things out, similar to a detox for weight loss. Or perhaps you didn’t have a steam plan with the right herbs tailored to your needs.

Remember, good things take time—think 3-6 months of regular steaming. Also, comfort is key! If your setup isn’t cozy, you might not be completing your sessions properly. So, give it another shot with the right herbs and a bit more patience.

Testimonial Time: Jenna shares, "I almost gave up after my first month of steaming because I noticed more clotting during my period.  Three months later, period cramps are rare and the clotting is much less, just small pieces of tissue. "

Myth #2: "Doctors Don’t Recommend Vaginal Steaming"

Not all doctors are against vaginal steaming! In fact, some doctors don’t recommend it simply because they aren’t familiar with it. Dr. Laurena White, an OB/GYN who incorporates vaginal steaming into her practice, believes in its benefits because she has seen the positive results firsthand. She explains doctors often play it safe and advise against things they don’t know much about to avoid any legal issues. But as more doctors learn about steaming and its benefits, many are starting to recommend it.

Testimonial Time: Samantha says, "I was hesitant at first because my doctor didn’t know much about steaming. But after seeing Dr. White’s recommendations and trying it myself, I’m totally hooked!"

Product Recommendation: Enhance your steaming routine with our soothing Yoni Cool Down blend, especially great for those experiencing night sweats or hot flashes.
