The worst part in the situation is most girls don't know they have a smelly vagina, yep that's right , you may not know you stink like bad fish down there so see this article as an enlightenment to your ignorance.Vaginal odor may limit sexual activity in a relationship; the woman feels uncomfortable, and the man becomes a little distant. However, the vagina has a distinct smell that is not a problem. Each girl has a particular vaginal smell; it is natural. Even when you notice a recent 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.
I mean come on! How hard is it to take care of your va jay jay? We guys are sometimes guilty of not changing our boxers for days but when we know we are going to have sex...we clean up but believe me a stinky vagina can't be cleaned prior to sex because the foul smell is from the inside..your vagina should be taken care of like you would a baby..not spending so much time on make up,fake ass pads,fake eye lashes..spend all that time cleaning your hole of pleasure!
So here are a few tips on how to take care of that glory hole between your legs. Oya grab a pen!
Note: Vaginal Odor can be caused by STI's sexually transmitted infection or change in diet
Many women believe that vaginal odor are the result of a lack of personal hygiene and wash excessively their vagina unaware that they worsen the problem. While poor genital hygiene can be the cause, excessive washing is not the solution. Very often, women hampered by a strong vaginal odor should not begin to wash themselves intensively. That does not help at all. The first thing to do should be restoring the acidity and the balance of the vaginal flora naturally. That restoration cannot be done by excessive antibiotic intake; it decreases your immune system.
These are the factors contributing to the unpleasant odor in a girl`s vagina.
Tip 1.Poor Hygiene
Do you wash yourself after going to pee? Do you wash yourself after going to the toilet? If you don't, damn! why are you even wondering about the bad smell in your vagina? You have to wash your vagina and your anal area every time after going to the toilet. Now washing your vagina doesn't mean you stick a bar of soap inside it and cleanse it out, NO! You must never wash the inside of your vagina because all that will do for you is kill the good bacteria in your vagina and leave the bad bacteria to grow and multiply. No matter who says what so ever lies about douching, please avoid it for your own benefit.
Just make sure to wash the outside surrounding areas of your vagina and bum to get rid of any dirt/bacteria which causes the bad odor. You can wash your anal area with soap but make sure it doesn't enter inside the vagina. The inside of our vagina already has its good bacteria which continuously cleanses it so there's no need for us to clean the inside of our vaginas.So the question is what is the right way to wipe your anus after going to the toilet? You must always wipe your vaginal area from up to downwards after going for a pee. And if you`re about to wipe your bum area, you should always wipe it from where it is to backwards and never towards your vagina because you do not want the dirty faeces going into your vagina and damaging its happy environment.
Tip 2- Stop growing a national forest down there!
It causes the bad odor of the vagina no matter how many times you wash it!
Seriously if you`re one of those ladies growing a national forest on their private parts please go to the bathroom and get rid of that forest! If you can't be bothered with shaving then at least trim it and keep the pubic hair really short because it stores the dirt/moisture in your private part which promotes the growth of fungi and bad bacteria. Just soak yourself in a nice warm bath, apply some mild soap or shaving cream and shave it off. You can apply a tiny bit of baby oil or olive oil right after you shave to reduce that itchy and irritating feeling but don't apply it right into the vagina. Just take a few drops, massage it into your palms and apply it around your vagina to reduce itchiness. Having pubic hair especially when you`re on your period is disgusting! Period already has its smell and having a forest down there just makes it worse so please get rid of it if you haven't already. Trust me , most guys love it shaved and soft .wink wink
Tip 3- Please say NO to Douching!
You`re not doing any favour for your poor Vaj-Jay. . .
Douching is very bad. For those of you who do not know what douching is, it is the internal cleansing process of vagina. The word `douche` actually means wash in French but douching in general is the process that women go through to cleanse the inside of their vagina.Like I mentioned earlier, our vaginas have their natural cleansing system built inside them which cleanses continuously and I mean even after you have your period etc, does not mean you're going to have leftovers rotting in your vagina forever. All the dirty fluids that have to come out will come out eventually so there is absolutely no need to wash the inside of your vagina with douching method or with all these PH balanced fem washes. You don't need any of that. In fact using these Fem washes down there could lead to serious vaginal infections . Douching and PH balanced fem washes are the best ways to kill the natural healthy environment of the vagina and promote the growth of bad bacteria.
TIP# 4- Do you sweat or get wet a lot down there?
Baby wipes can help solve that problem.
Baby wipes are described as mild as pure water to the skin and can be used all over the body. They`re specially made to suit the delicate skin of the new born babies. Baby wipes are perfectly gentle and can be used often to wipe around the vagina and anal area couple of times during the day. It is a good idea to make it into a habit to keep a packet of baby wipes in your bag [or handbag] wherever you go. When you feel yourself sweating too much or getting wet in your vagina, just go somewhere private and wipe that area with baby wipes. Please do not stick the baby wipes inside your vagina just because it's described as mild as pure water doesn't mean it is water!
Always keep your vaginal area dry; allowing any moisture to accumulate will promote the growth of the bad bacteria which causes the vaginal odor. Pat your vagina dry with some plain tissues and fan it with a card or whatever thoroughly before putting on your underwear.
TIP# 5- Do you wear cotton panties?
Give up on thongs/tight underwear. . .at least until you get rid of this fishy odor!
If you`re one of those ladies who wear extremely tight and fashionable underwear like thongs and other synthetic panties, then you`re not doing any favor for your poor vagina. Wearing tight underwear suffocates the vagina from breathing fresh air and stores up all the unwanted moisture around that area which makes it the perfect environment for bad bacteria to grow. You have to let your vagina breathe and the only way you can do that is by wearing cotton panties. If possible, white cotton panties are the best because they have no dye in them and are super good for that delicate skin around your vagina.
How can you wear tight panties or thongs all day and expect your Vaj-Jay not to smell bad? Wearing tight underwear is like wearing socks all day on a summer's day. Just like how your feet will smell bad after removing socks on a hot sunny day is how your vagina will also smell bad if you keep wearing tight underwear all day every day. Would you rather prefer to have a clean and healthy vagina in not so fashionable cotton panties or have an unhealthy vagina that smells like a dead fish underneath the sexy thong? I don't know if I could make this any clearer but yes cotton panties are one of the best solutions to get rid of vaginal odor. Avoid wearing underwear when going to bed so that your vagina can also have some peace and freedom from your underwear.
TIP# 6- Are you sexually active?
If you are, make sure that he wears what he has to wear!
From the research I carried out on Vaginal odor and infections, I have found out that in some cases the guy`s semen and other secretions can also be the cause of the bad odor of the vagina. This could either be because he has STD [Sexually Transmitted Disease] or he doesn't clean his private part thoroughly before entering inside the woman. If you trust him so much and you know that he doesn't have any of that stuff, you can skip the condom part but if you`re not sure then don't risk it whatsoever.
Just like us woman, guys also have fluid coming out of their penis constantly and they must make sure that they wash their penis after every trip to the toilet or at least before having sexual intercourse with a woman. If your guy doesn't, make sure you ask him to [in a kind way] before proceeding further. You must also try your best to avoid the use of lubricants inside your vagina and if it's badly needed opt for one that has all natural ingredients. It is also best to ask him to wash his hands before putting it inside your Vaj-Jay because you don't know what sort of deadly bacteria can enter inside you from his fingers. There is nothing wrong in asking him to wash his hands; it's just a normal hygienic practice. It will also let him know how concerned you are about your personal hygiene.
You must urinate and wash your vagina after having sexual intercourse, if you don't the guy`s semen and your fluid will dry up in your down part and eventually end up smelling very bad. Always remember to keep that area dry to avoid storing up moisture which causes the bad odor of the vagina.
TIP# 7- One clove of Garlic a day keeps the Vaginal odor away!
The garlic treatment to cure vaginal infections has been used since ancient times and it works. . .
Garlic is packed with good antifungal properties which fights yeast infection. I normally roast few cloves of garlic on a saucepan for 1 minute and consume it early in the morning with warm water. It really cleanses our inner body system and gets rid of the bad bacteria. You can also insert a fresh clove of garlic in your vagina before going to bed and it will automatically fall out when you wake up and urinate in the morning. The garlic juice will travel and kill the bad bacteria which causes yeast infection and the bad smell of the vagina. Its best to do this before going to bed because you will be able to taste some of the juice in your mouth when the garlic clove is inside your vagina and its less noticeable when we`re asleep.
Garlic will also help to get rid of other bad infections like thread worms Garlic is like a super food for our vaginal health so does consume it often. You can add garlic cloves [chopped] or garlic paste to your dishes and salads too.
This treatment has been proven to cure yeast infection/Bacterial Vaginosis and is one of the powerful remedy of the olden days but if it doesn't help you within 5 days of doing the treatment, you have to visit your gynecologist and seek advanced medical treatment because only then you will be able to find out what's really wrong with your body.
TIP# 8- Eat your Yogurt every day or at least couple of times a week!
Natural, non-flavoured and 0% Fat Yogurt helps with Vaginal Odor
Natural and non-flavoured yogurt is rich in Acidophilus [good bacteria] which fights the bad bacteria in our bodies. This also means that yogurt keeps the PH of the vagina balanced and keeps the vaginal environment healthy. If the inside of the vagina is healthy, then you won't be having any kind of fishy odor coming from there. So start eating your natural fat free yogurt regularly and you should soon see some positive difference. You can also apply some natural fat free yogurt in and around your vagina for fast recovery from yeast infections but make sure it is fat free and plain though. Does it work? Yes it works and it's one of the easiest ways to cure vaginal odor.
TIP# 9- WATER! WATER! WATER!
Drink your 8 glasses of water every day. . .
We need to be drinking enough water to help get rid of all the bad toxins out of our bodies. Not drinking enough water accumulates bad toxins and also dehydrates the body which could cause that vaginal odor. So avoid the bad stuff like caffeine, sugary drinks and learn to love your glasses of natural water.
TIP# 12- Try water/liquid diet once a week
It will help cleanse out all the bad toxins from your body and get rid of vaginal odor!
If you have really strong fishy odor coming out from your vagina, you should give a try to water diet one day per week until you notice any positive changes in the smell. Drink lots of water, natural fruit juices, you can eat organic fat free yogurt and fresh fruits too. It cleanses your inner system and gets rid of the bad toxins which cause the fishy odor of the vagina. Another plus point of this one day liquid diet is that it can help control your appetite and lose weight gradually [if you want to].
