The 3 Types of Vaginal Odor & How to Eliminate Them

Are you noticing odors coming from your vagina? Is it becoming a problem? Are you tired of not knowing what you can/cannot use on your vagina? 

This blog post will dive into the possible reasons for vaginal odor, and how you can prevent them. 

MENSTRUAL ODOR

With so many hormonal changes happening in our bodies at this time, your flora or PH balance can be seriously interrupted causing a metallic or fish-like odor. 

During this time, we recommend using our all-natural feminine washes. They help regulate your PH and keep you feeling fresh, clean, and odor free. 

 

AMMONIA/BLEACH ODOR

Our urine contains a by-product of ammonia called Urea. Using the restroom throughout the day can cause a buildup of urine and the ammonia smell becomes heightened. If this is an issue for you, we recommend our natural Feminine wipes. Our wipes are gentle and 100% safe to use on your Yoni. This will allow you to stay fresh and clean after using the restroom. 

FISHY ODOR

A fish-like odor is one that you have to lookout for, because that indicates infection such as Bacterial Vaginosis (BV) or even yeast infection. If you suffer from BV, we recommend using our Fresh Flora Suppositories. Use these once a day for 7 days as a treatment. Should your symptoms persist, consult a doctor. 

This should be common knowledge by now but it’s not. The bottom line? The vagina contains a highly specialized army of bacteria that work ‘round the clock to keep your vaginal pH healthy and balanced.

And like other bacteria, these do have a smell.

So that oh-so-special tanginess you occasionally get a whiff of is totally normal and nothing that needs to be covered up by scented body washes or perfumes. Of course, if you’re noticing a new scent that’s odd or pungent, see a doctor or Message Us about which products you can use from home!
