Unusual vaginal odor happens from time to time. Even when you’re taking good care of your body and your vagina, you may experience unfamiliar smells. What’s not normal, however, is persistent or strong odors.
Your vagina cleanses itself naturally. If you leave your vagina to its own devices, it can naturally maintain a healthy pH and keep unhealthy bacteria at bay. But if you notice a stark difference in your odor, then you may be experiencing a sign of a potential problem. Strong odors, itching and irritation, and unusual discharge are all signs you may have something other than just unusual vaginal odor.
Here are the proper ways to care for your Vaginal:
1: Depending on your routine every day, you may need to shower daily especially if you notice your Vagina smells.
2. After a workout session, make sure that you shower to remove sweat from the body, including down there.
3. Don’t mask odor by using fragrant soap. If possible, use only natural soaps. Soaps that most people use today have chemicals that can upset the natural balance of the Vagina and may cause irritation.
4. Only clean the outer part of the Vagina as this can worsen the problem.
5. Don’t douche unless your doctor tells you to do so.
Always wipe from front to back to avoid infection. You can use wet wipes or baby wipes to remove dry wipe residue, which can also cause infection.
Things to remember when you use some items in your Vagina:
1. Make sure your lubricant is silicone or water based.
2. Don’t use some products around the Vagina, such as lotions and others that aren’t meant for Vagina use.
3. Go for breathable cotton underwear and make sure you change at least once a day.
4. If you use a tampon, don’t leave it there for too long as this encourages the immune system to respond and attack the foreign object. The same thing happens if a condom breaks and a small piece of it remains in the Vagina.
Bacterial growth, poor hygiene, yeast infections, and even hormonal changes can affect the odor of your Vagina. If there are other symptoms, such as burning, redness, irritation, and itching in the Vaginal area, this may be due to an infection. Talk to your doctor as soon as possible to get a diagnosis.
