What stinks down south?

 
I haven't had my period yet but when I'm sitting in class and doing my work, down there starts to stink! How do I make it smell better? My mom said to use soap so I do every time I take a shower but the smell never goes away. What should I do?

 

In life, everyone has little insecurities that they have to learn to deal with. As a female, it is likely that we’ll have to deal with some sort of vaginal odor at some point during puberty. Many women are embarrassed by vaginal odor, yet in reality, most of the women around you have dealt with the exact same issue.

 

The facts

The sour scent you smell could come from a variety of causes ranging from lack of personal hygiene to a yeast infection. The soap you’re washing with could actually be part of the problem. Cleansers and feminine hygiene products get rid of good and bad bacteria, making it difficult for your vagina to regulate and clean itself naturally.

 

Helpful tips

Improving your personal hygiene is the easiest way to eliminate vaginal odors. Make sure you rinse your private parts with warm water in the shower, but avoid using soap or feminine hygiene products.  Also try to wear loose cotton clothing to allow more air circulation. It may surprise you, but lace and thick material underwear can really prevent the necessary air passage.

 

If the scent lingers, talk to your doctor.
