Attention Ladies! Did You Know Why Your Private Part Smells? Here's The Most Common Reason Why

Vginal smell is not normal and you must get rid of it as soon as possible, but you should find the source of this problem only then you can take correct step to cure it.

Some common causes of vginal odor include:

Bacterial Vaginosis (BV)

– The v@gina is normally colonized with healthy bacteria, but if something disturbs the ecosystem, then unhealthy bacteria like BV can take over. BV is most commonly caused by an overgrowth of the bacteria Gardnerella v@ginalis.  Symptoms include a thin grey, runny discharge and a strong fishy odor. The odor is more pungent when in contact with semen, so often women will first notice this as a strong odor after s*x. BV is annoying and can increase your risk of other infections, but is easily treated with antibiotics.

Your Diet

– The old adage “You are what eat” is true, all the way down to your lady bits. Garlic, onion, asparagus, and curry are few of the more odoriferous foods known to affect body odor.

Medications/ Supplements 

– Medications such as antibiotics can affect the bacterial balance of your vag!na leading to changes in odor and discharge. Antihistamines can lead to v@ginal dryness and decreased v@g!nal secretions, which can also have an effect.  Additionally, herbal therapies and the newly popular essential oils can lead to changes in vag!nal odor.


– Much like your underarms, the skin around your genitals is prone to excessive sweating. Sweat, when combined with discharge, can escalate the natural musk to a whole new level of stank. This is a natural odor, though sometimes slightly unpleasant. To minimize the smell, change clothes after exercising and wear breathable fabrics.

Hormonal Changes 

– The amount of discharge varies throughout menstrual cycles. Hormonal therapies, birth control pills and vginal creams can have an effect the vag!nal PH and odor as well. Menopause also leads to major changes as the decreasing estrogen levels can lead to increasing incidence of yeast infection and BV.

A Forgotten Tampon 

– There is one odor that is so foul, it is unlike anything you have every smelled in your entire life. It’s the one smell that makes even the gynecologist gag: the forgotten tampon. The patients on many occasions have described the odors as ”it smells like something crawled up in there and died.”

I would have to agree that this is an honest statement. While the odor is particularly offensive, it does resolve quickly after the tampon is removed. Rarely, the retained tampon can also lead to serious infection, so it is important to see your doctor should this occur (symptoms include a brown discharge and odor).

Here's how you can get rid of that foul smell from your private part. Watch this video below.
