douche

[do̅o̅sh]
Etymology: Fr, shower-bath
1 n, a procedure in which a liter or more of a solution of a medication or cleansing agent in warm water is introduced into the vagina under low pressure. The woman often performs the procedure herself. Sitting on a toilet seat or semisitting in a bathtub, she introduces the douche tip into the vagina and releases a clamp on the tubing connected to the douche bag, which is suspended 2 feet above the introitus. She allows the solution to flow in, while holding the lips of the vagina closed to retain the fluid. As the accumulation of fluid distends the vagina, she clamps the tubing and, after a few minutes, allows the fluid to flow out. The process is repeated until the entire quantity of solution in the douche bag has been used. Douches also are administered via prepackaged preparations in flexible plastic bottles. Douching may be recommended in the treatment of various pelvic and vaginal infections.
2 v, to perform a douche.
