9 reasons why a woman’s vagina will smell

22 Apr

The vagina has a distinct smell which is
not a problem, as everybody has their
own particular vaginal smell that is
natural.
Whether this natural smell is neutral or
not, it is a matter of personal judgment.
In fact, some women notice their odor
when there is no notable odor detected by
others.
Even when you notice a difference in its
smell, it is not necessarily an infection.
That change may be linked to a specific
moment of your menstrual cycle because
the smell of your vagina can vary
depending on the time of the cycle.
However, if the odor changes and becomes
strongly unpleasant, this change deserves
attention because it is perhaps a sign of a
serious vaginal infection.
If left untreated, this condition may cause
not only physiologic problems but also
emotional stress which can make the
person uncomfortable thinking the odor is
detected by others.
Here are 9 reasons you should know cause
smelly vagina so you can stop feeling self-
conscious:
1. Excessive washing: Even if you’re just
washing your vagina with warm water,
excessive washing can still mess with the
vagina’s flora, causing an odor.
2. Allergy to condoms: Some women are
allergic to certain materials in condoms,
which can throw off vaginal bacteria and
cause odor.
3. Douching: This can mess with the pH
levels of the vagina and even cause a large
amount of bacteria to grow. There is good
and bad bacteria that can be down there,
but the bad bacteria can cause a strong
smell.
4. Tight Clothing: Wearing very tight
pants or underwear can cause your vagina
to sweat, which can cause vaginal odor.
5. Spicy Food: Spicy food can cause a
sudden increase in your vaginal discharge,
which can cause vaginal odor.
6. Sleeping with underwear at
night: According to reports, sleeping in
the nude to air out the vagina is the best
way to go
7. Laundry Detergent: Laundry detergent
with perfume or fabric softeners can
irritate the vagina, once again causing
odor. Wash your underwear separately
with unscented detergent.
8. Pregnancy: During pregnancy, many of
vitamins and minerals are passed along to
your baby, and this can throw off the pH
levels in your vagina.
9. Sex: You may notice vaginal odors
accumulating directly after sex.
