The Feds on Douching and Marmoset-Men

Just happened upon the Dept. of Health and Human Services's women's health website,, which is billed as "The Federal Government Source for Women's Health Information".

What is the best way to clean my vagina?

Most doctors say that it is best to let your vagina clean itself. The vagina cleans itself naturally by producing mucous. Women do not need to douche to wash away blood, semen, or vaginal discharge. The vagina gets rid of it alone. Also, it is important to note that even healthy, clean vaginas may have a mild odor.

There's also a big section -- just updated! -- on, um, Men's Health. Since men, though possibly just like tiny monkeys called marmosets, are also apparently some sort of owned subset of women.
Women also play an important role in the health care of their men through education and awareness.
