syringe yourself with a quart or two quarts of warm water. Such a 

tampon may be inserted every other day or every third day, and I have 

known many cases where this simple treatment alone produced a cure. In 

some cases, however, douches work better and the two best things for 

douching are: tincture of iodine and lactic acid. Buy, say, four 

ounces of tincture of iodine, and use two teaspoonfuls in two quarts 

of hot water in a douche bag. This injection should be used twice a 

day, morning and night. Of the lactic acid you buy, say, a pint, and 

use two tablespoonfuls to two quarts of water. The lactic acid has the 

advantage over the tincture of iodine that it is colorless, while the 

iodine is dark and stains whatever it comes in contact with. Sometimes 

I order the use of the tincture of iodine and the lactic acid 

alternately: for one douche the tincture of iodine, for the next the 

lactic acid, and so on. When the condition improves, it is sufficient 

to use one teaspoonful of the tincture of iodine and one tablespoonful 

of the lactic acid to two quarts of water. These injections are quite 

efficient and have the advantage of being perfectly harmless. One 

point about the injections: they should be taken not in the standing 

or squatting position (in which position the fluid comes right out), 

but while lying down, over a douche pan. The douche bag should be only 

about a foot above the bed, so that the irrigating fluid may come out 

slowly; the patient, after each injection taken in the daytime, should 

remain at least half an hour in bed (in the night time she stays all 

night in bed). This gives the injection a better chance to come in 

contact with all the parts of the vagina, and a portion of it comes in 

contact with the cervix, where it exerts a healing effect. Avoid the 

use of patent medicines. 

 

 

 

 

CHAPTER TWENTY-ONE 

 

THE VENEREAL DISEASES 

 

Derivation of Word "Venereal"--Three Venereal Diseases--Innocent 

Contraction of Syphilis Through Various Objects--The Hygienic 

Elimination of Common Sources of Venereal Infection--Measures for 

Prevention After Sexual Relations. 

 

 

The word "venereal" means pertaining to sexual intercourse: venereal 

excess--excess in sexual intercourse; venereal disease--a disease 

acquired from sexual intercourse with an infected person. The word is 

derived from Venus (genitive--veneris), the Roman goddess of spring, 

flowers and Love. 

 

There are three venereal diseases: gonorrhea, syphilis and chancroid. 

Of these, gonorrhea is the most widespread, syphilis the most serious. 

Chancroid is of comparatively little importance. 

 

While by far the greatest amount of venereal diseases--probably ninety 

per cent, of the total--is contracted from illicit[7] intercourse, it 

is well to bear in mind that some of it is contracted innocently,
