Q1: What are Sitz baths?

A: Sitz baths can be purchased from hospitals and are often available in the form of a small plastic basin that sits atop the toilet and should be filled with warm water. The principle of Sitz baths is based on hydrotherapy, whereby the warmth of the water promotes circulation in the pelvic area, thereby speeding up the healing process. A woman is recommended to sit in the basin for up to fifteen minutes or when the water becomes cool. Sitz baths are recommended immediately following delivery to soothe perineal tears, soreness, sometimes experienced as burning sensations.

Q2: What are Sitz baths used for?

A: Besides soothing perineum tears and soreness after delivery, sitz baths are beneficial in eliminating hemorrhoids and for soothing symptoms associated with bladder or yeast infections.

Q3: How often can sitz baths be taken?

A: Sitz baths can be taken as a weekly tonic treatment or used more frequently as part of a more rigorous health program.
