Precautions and Contraindications
+ Pregnancy. While steaming is beneficial for conception and postpartum recovery, steaming is CONTRAINDICATED during any stage of pregnancy and therefore should NOT be performed while pregnant. If you are actively trying to conceive, DO NOT steam after ovulation.
+Active Menstruation. If you are actively menstruating (bleeding), steaming should NOT be performed. Steaming introduces heat, and starts to move the blood rapidly making for a heavier flow. Additionally, if you are prone to heavy bleeding and or spontaneous bleeding, it is HIGHLY recommended to wait until your cycle is regulated.
+IUDS. There is much debate surrounding the use of yoni steams with an IUD. Medicinal herbs can cause the uterus to contract and could potentially dislodge or cause issues with the placement of the IUD, consult with our Vaginal steam facilitator to learn more and discuss if steaming is appropriate for you.
