Can people smell my pad?

 
Yes! Lots of us worry about smelling—funky and rarely does anyone else notice.
 
Stay fresh “down there” by following fool-proof guidelines for maxi-pad use. First off, change the thing every four hours, explains Dr. Adelaide Nardone, gynecologist and medical advisor to the Vagisil Women’s Health Center. “As blood dries, it smells,” she says. Bacteria get into the pad, and the blood begins to decompose (hold your nose) and, well, we’ll spare you the rest. This is a normal, natural process. But to keep odor-free, put on a fresh pad when you see a lot of blood on it, even if it’s only been an hour or two.

To fight odors, you can try deodorant maxis, Dr. Nardone says, but many girls are sensitive to the perfumes and should stick to unscented. Also, shower daily—with or without a mild soap—for good vaginal hygiene. If something still doesn’t smell right, see a doc. You could have an infection that needs an easy (we promise) prescription treatment.
