Vaginal odor is one of the most common and least talked about feminine concerns. We all feel embarrassed to admit that it happens but the truth is it is very common. It is also important to realise that some smell is absolutely normal and you need not worry about it. But, in some cases, it can mean that your body is trying to tell you something. That’s why it is important to have an open conversation around it to ensure vaginal health.

Let’s have a look at the causes of vaginal odor!

It can happen for a variety of reasons which keep on changing from time to time. While some causes are on the normal side that include increased physical activity, menstruation or hormonal changes, others can mean an infection. For example, a metallic smell is normal during your periods, but if you have a foul fishy smell, then it is time to see your doctor. Some common causes of vaginal odor include:

  • - Perspiration
  • - pH imbalance
  • - menstrual cycle
  • - Sexual intercourse
  • - Infection

Now. What can you do to get rid of or even prevent vaginal odor? Have a look!

  • 1. Practise good hygiene:

Vaginal hygiene

Regular bathing and cleaning your lady parts down there lies at the core of vaginal care. Use a gentle washcloth to wash away the dead skin, sweat and dirt. You can even use a mild soap and vaginal wipes on the outside. Avoid using any loofa as it might cause tiny tears that may cause infection. However, refrain from using any soap on the inside of the labia. The area is much more sensitive and the soap might end up causing irritation and burning. Your vagina is slightly acidic and using any scented products can disrupt its pH balance. On top of that your vagina is self-cleaning. It really doesn’t need any external help. Letting the water run over the area is often good enough.

  • 2. Eat a healthy diet:

Healthy food

Believe it or not but what you eat impacts your vaginal health. You should have a well-balanced diet that is full of all types of colourful fruits and vegetables; there are certain kinds of food that are particularly good for your vagina. For example: Probiotics help in promoting the growth of good bacteria that further reduce the chances of any bacterial infections. Cranberries are also good in keeping the UTIs away. You can even take vaginal health supplements.

  • 3. Wear cotton underwear:

Let it breathe! If you normally wear satin, silk or polyester panties, then switch to cotton ones right now! Materials like silk or satin retain moisture and excessive moisture acts as a breeding ground for a lot of infections. Cotton is breathable and does an excellent job in wicking away the sweat or any kind of moisturize.

Following these simple and easy steps will help you in controlling any normal odor, but if you notice a foul or fishy smell along with any burning or irritation, then you must get in touch with your doctor.

What is Lorem Ipsum? Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum. Why do we use it? It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
