Abstract Vaginal douching is a common hygiene practice for many women all over the world. Little is known about the beliefs and attitudes that promote and maintain douching practices. Therefore, the aim of this study is to evaluate the status of vaginal douching practices of women in the Erzurum province of Turkey. The present study was a descriptive and cross-sectional quality. All participants were 15-49 years of age and all were married. Data analysis included descriptive statistics and chi(2) test. The present study revealed that the frequency of douching was 51.4\% among women and that the most common reason for their habit was feminine hygiene and the most popular material used was water. A statistically significant relationship was found between the habit of doing the vaginal douching and the educational level, age of marriage, number of births, case of genital infections within the last year and presence of complaints indicating vaginal infections for the last month. This study provides preliminary information about women's douching practices and attitudes. It might also provide information to health-care practitioners in their efforts to educate women on the adverse effects of vaginal douching.
