You will receive a detailed Product Guide with each purchase where we reveal more information as well as our best practices on how to properly steam.
As part of an overall self-care regime, we recommend that women steam two to three times per month, always during weeks in which you are not menstruating. Women who suffer from pain, bloating or exhaustion during menstruation should steam two to three times within the week before menstruation.
Women who are experiencing fertility challenges should steam every other day, especially during ovulation to make sure that the tissue is moist and that the cervical fluids are clear and copious. They should expect to steam for three months before seeing results (do not try to get pregnant while undergoing this treatment regimen).
For postpartum, we recommend waiting at least a week after giving birth, in order to give your body some time to heal on its own before introducing the warm steam. Obviously, in cases of extreme bleeding or hemorrhaging, a yoni steam would be contraindicated. There is not a point at which it is too late, as you will receive the benefits any time you decide to steam.
Women who are experiencing or who have passed menopause should steam at least three times per year for maintenance, but may steam more often if it feels right.
If your challenges are chronic, you may want to steam up to three times per week to ensure the best results.
The menstrual cycle can and often does change as a side-effect of the Yoni steam. Often, there is a great deal of material that is "encrusted" to the inside of your womb, which is expelled during your next menses after doing the Yoni steam. The herbs have a powerful effect on the uterus, dislodging much of what is stuck. Sometimes this means your flow will be very heavy, dark and thick for just a day or two, and other times it just extends the length of your period to get it all out. Eventually, your next periods should be much lighter and more pleasant than ever before.
Please double check if you are allergic to any of the herbs used in your Yoni steaming pack before purchase and use.
