Cons of yoni steam seat:

The first con and you can simply say the drawback is that there is no scientific proof or evidence on all the benefits of vaginal steaming. According to scientists, the vagina is a self-cleaning organ. It can clean it by itself. There’s no need for artificial cleaning. You just have to be hygienic.

Here I list some of the cons of yoni steaming or yoni steam seat:

  1. The vulva is very sensitive. In steam, we use steam (hot) with the herb. It may burn the vulva. 
  2. Herbs are used in it. Your vagina may be allergic to the specific herbs that you are using. It may cause severe irritation and itching. Scent herbs can also change the PH of the vagina.
  3. As I said, you are using herbs and steam which is dangerous for the vagina to expose directly and may cause fungal infections. 

Alternative to yoni steam:

Plain water is the best alternative. Just use plain water and also you can use soap (with do not do irritation), if you want but only outside the vagina not inside. Otherwise, water is best. As I mentioned earlier, the vagina is a self-cleaning organ. As there is no scientific explanation for yoni steaming.


There are pros and cons of yoni steaming. It has many benefits but is not yet proved by scientists. Besides, if you are not allergic to herbs and do not overheat then you can try it. But you should consult with practitioners.
