The question everyone is afraid to ask.
Okay girls, here is the questions everyone wants to ask, but no one dare mention.
Does your vagina smell normal?
By now most people know that a vagina is supposed to have a smell.
But did you know that a healthy vagina is supposed to emit a variety of smells each and every month?
This is totally normal and not something to be embarrassed about.
That’s right, basically vaginas are supposed to have a smell at all times.
Sorry if that bums you out, but it is 100% normal and healthy.
First off, it is important to get the concept out of your mind that vaginas are supposed to smell like roses. They just aren’t.
FYI, don’t listen to feminine deodorant companies that tell you your crotch is supposed to smell like perfume. They are trying to sell you products you simply don’t need.
Your scent depend a lot on your menstrual cycle.
Sometimes it will be stronger than at other times.
Normal vaginal odors are sometimes described as vinegary, musty, pungent or slightly fishy.
However, if your vaginal scent is overly strong or intense, it could be a sign of an infection such as bacterial vaginosis. In this case, you should see your gynecologist immediately.
Also, to cut down on vaginal odors, watch what you eat.
Garlic, onion, asparagus can make your vagina smell even stronger.
Also, to cut down on vaginal odor, a simple bath or shower can do the trick.
Sweat from exercise or other strenuous activity can escalate your vaginal odor to new levels. So don’t forget to shower before a date!
Remember, having a vaginal scent is normal, not weird, bad or otherwise.
Female bodies are beautiful and don’t let anyone make you feel ashamed of your femininity!
