Most of the side effects reported while steaming are positive. Users have reported better sleep, decreased swelling in legs and feet, decreased abdominal bloating, slimmer waistline, increased libido, fewer PMS symptoms, increased energy, lucid dreams, glowing skin, increased lubrication, and reduction in incidence of hormonal acne.
However, some undesirable side effects might occur. These include shorted menstrual cycles, onset of bleeding, headaches, or an infection outbreak. In 99% of all cases using a mild steam session and mild herbs will prevent the above from happening so its very important that you give honest answers in the prescreening intake form so that the Practitioner can set up a steam session that will fit your needs.
Note: it is best practice to check that your vaginal steam specialist has a vaginal steam facilitators certificate in good standing. This certificate ensures that your practitioner knows the proper safety standards regarding setting up a vaginal steam session tailored to fit your needs. Please check the steam directory at Yoni Empowerment to ensure that your practitioner has a valid certificate. Yoni Empowerment keeps an up-to-date list of all certified practitioners on the directory so if they are not on the map it is a possible that the certificate is fabricated.
