Question about Lime Douche
Tue, 09-04-2007 - 11:58pm
Its kind of embarrasing but I am going to give it a try and am wondering if anyone can tell me if you douche before BD can you tell the difference..meaning do you smell like limes? Does it burn or irritate? Did your significant other have any complaints? Any info would help tremendously.

I do not remember any lime smell. Since we were avoiding the BIG O for me DH's face was never down
Does it burn or irritate? Depends on the person and the concentration of the douche. A lower concentration the less it burns.

Here is what I remember my DS that came from my attempt is near 8 months so it's been a

Some burning especially the first few times each cycle. It was never enough to deter me from my mission but did cause a bit of discomfort.

It leaks out almost as fast as you put it in.

No complaints from DH until the final month when I was so darn dry that I rubbed him raw from our every day bd The last BD of my BFP cycle I douched before and after BD with lemon and water (I ran out of lime that day).
Hope that helps!
