Contraindications

There are times when vaginal steaming is not safe, making it all the more important to get the proper information and guidance for you, your body, and your healing.

Here you'll find times when vaginal steaming is not safe.

 

TIMES WHEN IT IS NOT SAFE TO STEAM, include but are not limited to:

1) During pregnancy.

Steam helps open the cervix, which is not safe during pregnancy.

2) During menstruation/ period.

During the monthly bleed/ period the uterine arteries are open and as steam increases blood flow it is not safe to steam.

3) If you are prone to or are experiencing spontaneous bleeding, bleed in-between periods, or have two periods per month.

As steam increases blood flow, if you have the above experiences please work with a Certified Vaginal Steam Practitioner to ensure that you follow a safe steaming schedule.

4) When trying to conceive, do not steam during your fertile window or after ovulation.

Steam is supportive of release. So when trying to conceive, it is NOT safe to steam during your fertile window or after ovulation and before menstruation/ confirmation that you are not pregnant. Therefore, when trying to conceive, only steam during your follicular phase, which is after menstruation and before your ovulatory phase. Do not steam after ovulation, insemination, or IUI/IVF transfer until menstruation or a health professional confirms that you are not pregnant. 

5) In extremely hot weather.

Vaginal steaming warms the body and in circumstances of extremely hot weather, it is not advised.

6) When using certain procedures and interventions for birth control.

Vaginal steaming may cause the reversal of the following procedures and interventions: Endometrial Ablation, Tubal Cauterization, Essure, and the patch hormonal birth control that prevents pregnancy by thickening the uterine lining. If you are using any of these methods of birth control, please back them up before vaginal steaming.

If you have any questions about vaginal steaming safely for your body, consult a Certified Vaginal Steam Practitioner in advance of starting a vaginal steam practice.
