WHAT IS YONI STEAMING AND IS IT SAFE?
Yoni steaming, also known as vaginal steaming, is a practice in which a woman allows the warmth of herbal steam to permeate the exterior of her vagina. Respected by healers around the globe, yoni steaming is an opportunity to reconnect with your body and utilize the wisdom of plant medicine to improve menstrual cycles and regulate various health issues.
Yoni steaming is completely harmless but speak with a primary care provider if you have concerns.
HOW MANY TIMES PER MONTH CAN I STEAM?
Depends on the person and what they are steaming for. If there is an issue like fibroids, cysts, and/or endometriosis; one can steam once or even twice a week. I usually steam about 2-3 times a month. Once before my cycle to help with cramping, once afterward to refresh and a random one whenever I feel called.
CAN YOU STEAM WHILE PREGNANT?
No. Your uterus contracts while steaming and we do not want that to happen while you are growing a fetus. It may also induce your cycle, causing you to miscarry. If steaming for fertility enhancement, steam before ovulation to increase chances of conceiving.
IS IT SAFE? CAN I HURT MYSELF?
Yes, yoni steaming is safe. The worst that could happen to you would be that you burn yourself with steam that is too hot or accidentally came in skin contact with the hot water. To prevent burns be sure to test the steam before sitting over it and be mindful of your body and spatial awareness during your steam.
CAN I STEAM WHILE ON BIRTH CONTROL?
Steaming while on birth control is harmless. I do discourage steaming for those women who have an IUD. While there are many women that do; I do not recommend it. Your uterus contracts (slightly) while steaming and could cause issues with your implant.
