How often to perform yoni steaming is the most frequent question I am asked before a client walks out of the doors of Her Sacred Place. It is usually during the initial consultation or after a steam is completed. Either way, it is a popular question and not an easy one to answer. How often you should yoni steam depends on the reason for steaming. All women should steam monthly (every 4-5 weeks). Listed below are a few of the most common reasons for yoni steaming along with recommended frequency.
Remember, steaming is at your own risk and should not be done unless you have been consulted. You should NOT steam if you are pregnant, think you are pregnant, or have any vaginal bleeding or spotting. The list below is a short overview with minimum details and it does not take a place of a consultation to review all problems prior to beginning steaming.
Steaming for Period-Related Problems
If suffering from severe stagnation (dark, clotty, painful periods), heavy periods, long periods (more than 5 days), PMS and/or PMDD, I recommend steaming twice a month – the week prior to expecting your period and a few days after your period goes off. Once the period problems are alleviated, the steaming plan changes. However, it is best to stay on this plan at least 6 months even when immediately noticing. You should use the herbal blend found HERE for this steam.
For more information on how to reduce heavy periods in addition to your steaming regimen, please visit Her Sacred Place YouTube Channel.
Steaming for Vaginal Infections (Bacterial Vaginosis & Yeast Infection)
If you are currently suffering from what you believe is a yeast infection or bacterial vaginosis, the best course of action is to steam daily until all of the symptoms of the infection is gone. This could take 3-10 days of steaming, but it is the best course without antibiotics. Use the herbal blend found HERE for this steam.
Steaming for Fibroids
This one is tricky because it depends on the number of fibroids, location, and the symptoms. It is best to book a consultation by e-mailing email@example.com to determine which steaming plan is best.
Steaming for PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome)
While steaming is not proven to cure PCOS, clients report a drastic change in symptoms quickly after consistently steaming. Changes include a more regular period, less painful periods, reduction in heavy bleeding, and change in facial hair. Use the herbal blend found HERE for this steam.
Steaming for Endometriosis
Like steaming for fibroids, this one is complex. Steaming for Endo could depend on the stage of endometriosis as well as the frequency of bleeding. You MUST do a consultation and I caution clients with endo to talk with a professional before beginning the steaming process. There is no cure for endometriosis but steaming typically helps with the excessive bleeding, frequency of bleeding, and heavy bleeding associated with this condition.
In the end, you should ALWAYS consult with a professional before beginning a vaginal steaming plan and never steam at home if you have not done it by a certified facilitator. If you have any questions, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Happy Steaming.
