Leaflet about the Frauenheil (Women's health) vaginal douche, including illustration
Vaginal douches were a contraceptive. They involved flushing the woman's vagina after sexual intercourse. This leaflet advertised the Frauenheil douche. It was written in the early 1900s. This was when contraception was more scarce and often frowned upon by parts of society. The leaflet was written in a very indirect manner. This allowed the reader to use the douche or syringe for hygienic reasons rather than as a contraceptive.
