When You Should Not Steam: YONI Steaming Contradictions
One of the biggest contradictions for YONI steaming is an Intrauterine Device, or IUD. Vaginal steaming is not recommended if a woman is using an IUD, because the steam softens, warms, and opens the cervix. This is part of the medicine of the practice – if there is pain and trouble with flow of menstruation, the steam invites better flow. But in the case of an IUD, that should not move. If it does, it has the potential to get stuck in a suboptimal position, perhaps rendering it ineffective, or even allowing for potential perforation of the uterine muscle or cervical damage.
