What Is Vagina Steaming? And How Can It Affect Your Sex Life

There’s always one health trend or the other at any point in time. But you should avoid jumping on them until you have enough information so you won’t do something you’ll regret.

Vagina steaming is not really a new thing in this part of the world but the trend is starting to gain popularity worldwide. The process is simple. You direct some herb-infused steam into your vagina by sitting or squatting over the container that contains the herbs and hot water.

What does it do?

It is believed that vagina steaming can help clean out your vagina, uterus and your entire reproductive tracts. There are claims that this procedure can help with infertility, depression, pain, and fatigue as well. Many Nigerian women already use this procedure for postpartum care and to treat gynecological issues.

In Kenya, the women steam their vagina to prepare for their husband’s return after they leave for a long period of time to hunt. The Maasai tribe steam their vagina with jasmine flowers. It’s supposed to tighten the vaginal canal and help give the area an appealing scent.

Some women who engage in vagina steaming also say they experience a boost in their sex drive too.

Should you try it?

Despite all the reports, there has been no scientific proof that vaginal steaming can actually do all of the above. The idea that the steam can find its way through your closed cervix to reach your uterus sounds far-fetched scientifically.

Regardless of whether or not you believe in the purported claims, make sure you seek a doctor’s advice before trying something like this. Just because it works for some does not mean it will work for you.
