How to Keep Your Vagina from Smelling


If you've noticed a funky odor from your vagina, or are simply worried that it might happen to you, the first thing you want to do is to make sure that you're disease free. Many sexual transmitted disease can cause a bad smell in your vagina, as can non-sexually transmitted diseases, like yeast infections. If you find that all of a sudden you're detecting a strange odor, you should consult your doctor immediately and let them know of any other symptoms you might be having.

If you are disease free and want to stay fresh, there are a few tips on how to keep your vagina from smelling. The first thing to do is to make sure to wash daily. This might sound like common sense, but many women aren't careful to clean themselves well. You'll want to use a fragrance and additive free soap. Gently pull back your labia and be sure to clean out each crevice of your vagina. Then rinse throughly and dry yourself completely.

When washing doesn't help, you might consider that it's not your vagina. Many women's urine can begin to smell when they eat foods like garlic or asparagus, drink alcohol or coffee, or even when they smoke cigarettes. Sometimes these smells can incorrectly be identified as the vagina smelling bad. If this might be the case, the best tip on how to keep your vagina from smelling is to cut out smelly foods and beverages from your diet, and avoid cigarette smoke.

Shaving is one of the best options for how to keep your vagina from smelling. Have you ever spent an evening in a smoky bar or home? If so, your hair likely reeked of smoke when you got home. This is because hair is very absorbent and will take on smells. The same is true of your pubic hair. When you sweat, it can be absorbed into the hair and will be held there until you wash yourself. Shaving all or most of the pubic hair can cut down on this problem.

When you're on the go and can't wash as regularly as you'd like, baby wipes can be an excellent option for how to keep your vagina from smelling. Simply use them in place of toilet paper for an extra cleaning. These days you can even find baby wipes in easy to take with you packs, that will fit discreetly in your purse or luggage.

While some foods and beverages can be the cause of a funky smelling vagina, there are a few that will actually help you learn how to keep your vagina from smelling. Cranberry juice kills smell inducing bacteria in the urinary tract and can help combat the resulting bad smell. Pineapple juice has also been shown to improve the smell and taste of some women's vaginas.

You can always try oils and creams as well. Some women like to rub baby oil around their labia, while others choose creams. Keep in mind that these must stay on the exterior of your body, and should not be pushed up into your vagina. If you notice a smell during sex, you can buy flavored and scented oils and lubes that your partner can use on you before performing oral sex.

Of course your vagina is going to have some kind of scent it's only natural. Remember that what might smell bad to you is likely to be turning your partner on. However, if you want to find out how to keep your vagina from smelling, try a few of the tips above and see which one helps you the most.
