Your Bod

I have a gross smell from "down there!"

I’m embarrassed to tell my mom. I think it is a yeast infection. Will it go away on its own?

Go to the gyno, girl friend. Because your discharge is odorous, it’s probably not a yeast infection. You most likely have another type of vaginal infection, but only a doc can give you the correct diagnosis and treatment.

No need to be red-faced—chances are, your mother has had her fair share of infections “down there.” Most women have, and it is rarely anything to worry about—but, no, it won’t magically disappear. Tell your mom, pronto.
