In the Know: Vaginal Odour
LET’S TALK ABOUT YOU
Have you noticed a difference in your typical vaginal odour?
NO. (DOES EVERY WOMAN HAVE A TYPICAL VAGINAL odour?)
For the record, every vagina has its own unique scent. Every. Single. One. That said, it’s perfectly OK to seek out solutions to help you feel confident in intimate settings and beyond, no matter your scent.
You probably have a good sense of what is typical for you, which helps in detecting a change. Your unique scent can be affected by a few things, including the normal bacteria in your vagina, diet, medication, fabrics, hygiene, bathroom habits and gland secretions. Working out, having sex and menstruation are also likely causes of a noticeable change. However, if you notice a strong, fishy odour it could be the sign of an infection, and we recommend consulting your doctor.
