According to singer, Eva Alordiah they are needs to smell your vagina everyday. This is an important information for all ladies.
The reason this became so important for me was because I just had to know what her natural smelling state was. And knowing that, I can tell immediately when there’s something fishy’ going on down there ? (pun intended)
Your Vagina has it’s own unique flavor and odor in normal healthy conditions, but do you know what it is?
Your vagina flora is home to millions upon millions of Bacteria, this coupled with Ph levels, menstrual cycle, hormonal changes, sexual activity and sexual health, the food you eat and your personal hygiene, your Vagina will smell different from time to time. And yes, it is completely normal for your Vagina to smell different throughout your cycle.
I believe that women must have a healthy mental, emotional and physical connection to their Yonis. And there are several practices to help you achieve this however I would like to focus on Smell in this post.
If you have not been sniffing at your Vagina from time to time, you might want to consider starting. Your body always tells you what is going on with you and as a Woman , your Vagina is really one of the best places to find out how you are doing.
Strong odors, itching and irritation are all tell tale signs of a vagina dealing with more than just a bad smell.
Generally your Vagina will have a sour-fruit type odor, not to harsh or pungent.
- You have your period
Having a smell with your period is totally normal. Considering what’s coming out of you during tampon week, it’s no surprise. Besides blood, there is also tissue from the uterus, and maybe even bacteria from the uterus that is expelled when you have your period.”
The scent can be more intense on the lighter days of your flow, when blood leaves your uterus more slowly and has had time to mix with odor-causing bacteria. So what exactly does period vagina smell like? Again, it’s different for everyone.
2. You just had sex
Post-sex stench goes beyond the potent blend of sweat and vaginal secretions your body produces during a bedroom session. Semen has its own distinct odor, which also depends on a guy’s body chemistry and other factors. When semen mixes with the normal bacteria in the vagina, “it can cause a sort of tangy smell that is totally normal,”.
One type of smell that often detected after sex isn’t normal: a strong, fishy odor. This is a telltale sign of bacterial vaginosis, a type of vaginal infection. If the odor persists, and is accompanied by a thin white discharge, pain, and/or itching, check in with your ob-gyn. Bacterial vaginosis is usually treated with antibiotics.
3. You’re eating different foods
Just as some foods can alter the smell of your breath, they can also change the scent of your lady parts. Onions are a common culprit, along with garlic, asparagus, curry, and red meat. Chemicals in these foods affect your vaginal secretions as well as the smell of your sweat and urine, so the new funk can be pretty noticeable. It’ll go away once your body fully metabolizes what you ate.
While there’s no solid science here, anecdotal evidence supports the idea that eating pineapple can make the vagina smell in a good way, perhaps by making it a little sweeter.
4. You picked up an STD
Sexually transmitted infections caused by bacteria, such as chlamydia and gonorrhea, can trigger a foul, unpleasant odour. Other signs of these STDs include pain during urination or a green to yellow discharge. But again, these sneaky infections often have no signs. If you suspect one, however, call your gyno, who can test you and treat it with antibiotics.
Another STD that triggers a foul or fishy odor is trichomoniasis, which is caused by a parasite. Trich doesn’t get a lot of attention, but it’s actually the most common curable STD. Other symptoms of trich include itching and pain while peeing. Antibiotics can get rid of it and get your vagina smelling back to normal.
5. You have a yeast infection
The usual tip-off to a yeast infection is itching and irritation at the opening of your vagina, and/or a thick, cheese curd kind of discharge. But sometimes it’s a bread-like odor that clues you in.
See your ob-gyn for a diagnosis and prescription meds to cure it, or hightail it to the drugstore for over-the-counter yeast-infection treatment.
