MEDICATED DOUCHING AFTER HYSTERECTOMY

HI,

I HAD A COMPLETE HYSTERECTOMY IN JANUARY AND UNTIL RECENTLY HAVE BEEN SHOWERING.  I'VE STARTED TAKING MY BATHS AND ALL OF  SUDDEN THERE IS A SLIGHT IRRITATION (I GUESS BECAUSE OF THE SOAP), SO I CHANGED TO A MILDER ONE...BUT NOW I HAVE SLIGHT DISCHARGE...NOT SMELLY BUT NONETHELESS A DISCHARGE.  CAN I USE MEDICATED DOUCHE OR SHOULD I JUST LEAVE IT ALONE?  P.S. THE SEXUAL ACTIVITY WITH MY PARTNER OF 8 YEARS HAS BEEN GREAT!  WE BOTH WAITED WAYYYY PAST THE 8 WEEK RECOVERY PERIOD BEFORE GETTING INTIMATE.. MY PARTNER IS VERY SUPPORTIVE.  ANYWAY, BACK TO THE QUESTION AT HAND...SHOULD I USE MEDICATED DOUCHE OR LEAVE IT ALONE..

HI,
You can leave it alone. Douching disturbs the normal flora and can be harmful and also it is unnecessary.
Hope this helps.
