It is not unnatural for vaginas to have different odor and scents scents from time to time. For example, during the menstrual cycle, your vagina can have a discharge with a metallic scent. Otherwise, it can be musky. But, sometimes, vaginal odors are a sign of a more serious problem, and it’s time that every woman knew when it’s time to see a doctor.

Signs of a Problem

Generally speaking, your vaginal discharge should never have a very powerful odor. It does smell, but the scent is not very pungent. If you notice that the smell of your discharge becomes more and more obvious, even while you’re wearing pants, it’s a sign that you need to see a doctor.

You could have vaginitis, which can thankfully be treated with medication and proper hygiene.  Itching is also normal, but only when it occurs from time to time and doesn’t disturb you on a frequent basis. 

Getting Rid of the Problem

With or without vaginal odor, regular trips to your gynecologist are recommended. Not only can they help you treat a problem like vaginitis, they will also perform medical exams to prevent any other reproductive system problems, as well as teach you everything you need to know about having a healthy vagina. 

It’s important to remember that a smelly discharge does not always equal the lack of personal hygiene. You can take showers every day and it still wouldn’t mean that you’ll be free of any hygiene problems. For future reference, consider the following hygiene measures:

  • What you eat is reflected in your vaginal discharge. If you focus your diet on plenty of fruits, vegetables, and replace fat meat with lean protein, this will reflect on your vaginal health as well.
  • And while we’re at it, staying hydrated is important. Water is important for a healthy organism, and it also encourages fluid release, contributing to a clean vagina.
  • As I’ve said before, hygiene isn’t about washing your vagina three times per day using the most expensive products on the market. In fact, your vagina has a natural pH which eventually comes out of balance when you use too many gels and products that alter this natural pH level. You don’t want to get rid of the good bacteria that are protecting you down there. Also, try to use natural products as much as possible, or special intimate gels, with no perfume.
  • Part of your vaginal hygiene is washing it before and after intercourse.
  • Tight clothes should be out of the equation, because they don’t let your intimate parts breathe. Speaking of which, you should also give up on underwear made from synthetic material. Nothing beats the quality and breathability of cotton. 

 

Keep in mind that most of the time, the vagina has a natural way of cleaning itself, without any intervention on your behalf whatsoever. Seeing a doctor becomes mandatory only when you notice that a powerful smell lingers on for too long, or when your discharge has a very unusual color and you’re not on your period.
