Weird smell.... down there :\ .... (TMI)

Okay so this is really embarrassing, so please dont judge me :( Ive been noticing a weird smell coming from down there.. almost like a period smell (I know, its disgusting), and I am expecting my period soon but its not here yet... and ive never experienced this before my period before. I shower every day, and make sure to wash down there really good, sometimes more than once... and even after that theres still a hint of that smell. Its really grossing me out! I've been tested for STDs and im clean. Obviously I should see the gyno but I figured id post on here first to see your opinions.

  • Stop washing so much You're messing up your natural pH, causing an over production of bacteria.
    Once a day, external parts only.

    You're supposed to have a scent. Your natural musk, your pheromones, that which attracts men to you.

  • Could be bacteria Vaginosis(sp), Atleast that's what it sounds like. You need antibiotics for that., Have to see a Gyno.

  • Did you leave a tampon in there?

  • This does not sound like bacterial vaginosis AT ALL.

  • fishy? bloody?


    ever have a u.t.i.? an urgent care trip could just eliminate that in 10 minutes for you... never know what they feel like if u have never had one before.

    in mean time drink 2x as much water and maybe some cranberry juice. , use plain soap, nothing fancy.

  • I've always noticed that when I have a different, or maybe stronger smell than my norm it's because I'm dehydrated. I drink lots of water and everything is ok again. But Staci is right. Vaginas smell.

  • Could it be a urinary tract infection? Sometimes those have a strange smell.
