BEFORE STEAMING CONSULT YOUR TRUSTED HEALTH PRACTITIONERS.
Make sure that vaginal steaming is a safe and aligned modality in support of your individual health, safety, and healing.
TIMES WHEN IT IS NOT SAFE TO STEAM.
Times when it is not safe to steam include but are not limited to:
1) During pregnancy (steam opens the cervix)
2) During menstruation/ period (steam increases blood flow)
3) If you are prone to or are experiencing spontaneous bleeding, bleed in-between periods, or have two periods per month
4) In extremely hot weather
5) When trying to conceive, it is NOT safe to steam after ovulation and before menstruation/ confirmation that you are not pregnant. Therefore, when trying to conceive, only steam during your follicular phase (in-between menstruation and ovulation) and do not steam after ovulation, insemination, or IUI/IVF transfer until menstruation or a doctor confirms that you are not pregnant.
Steaming may cause the reversal of the following procedures and interventions: Endometrial Ablation, Tubal Cauterization, Essure, and patch hormonal birth control that prevents pregnancy by thickening the uterine lining.
If you have any questions about steaming safely for your body, consult a certified vaginal steam practitioner or doctor in advance of starting a steam practice.
