We will be starting off with some of the common culprits.
First, let's cover the possible reasons that lead to bad smells.
Poor Hygiene: Now this is just too obvious, isn’t it? All that we can advise here is that you need to be washing your vajayjay daily. And if you’re not doing so, perhaps that is the sole reason for all the bad odor for you!
Yeast Infections: Okay, so this one is just for all of those people out there who believe Yeast Infection can cause bad odor in your vagina. This is highly unlikely as most of these infections are odorless.
Bacterial Vaginosis: Oh yes, this is one big issue. In this bacterial infection there will be a very distinctive fishy smell to your vagina. The smell is very pungent and nasty. It is caused by the overgrowth of natural bacteria. The main issue with this infection is that it can’t simply go away on its own and is not curable by Monistat, as it is anti fungal and this is a bacteria. Hence, it is best advised here that instead of carrying out your own experimental cures, you should consult with a doctor and get proper prescription.
STD’s: While STD’s do smell bad, this is highly unlikely, since they hardly ever show symptoms in women. However, if the problem of bad odor is persistent and you have been exposed in any way then it is best that you get this checked!
Smelly Urine: Since the urethra is located at an integral part, there are chances that the odor will also linger. Hence, you might also need to check into what is causing your urine to smell so strong. It can be curry, tea, coffee, beets, asparagus and many other things!
Sweating: Many women out there think they don’t sweat that much down there – and this is WRONG! The best way to kill this by keeping a few baby wipes in your purse and using them frequently. This scent is also much decreased if the woman is completely shaven around the labia.
Now, let’s talk about how to get rid of this stink!
Baby Wipes: Without a doubt, these are a girl’s best friend! Use these in your own toilet as well as keep a trial pack in your purse. Make sure these are your substitutes to the traditional toilet paper. It wil definitely help.
Cranberry Juice: Here it should also be noted that cranberry juice is naturally used to counter any bacteria in the urinary tract system. This is particularly helpful for women who have funky urine. You can start with one glass daily.
Baby Oil: This can help you if you apply it externally, but refrain from doing any application internally.
Shave Regularly: As mentioned earlier, keeping your vajayjay clean shaved can seriously help diminish any stink.
