  • Some people can have odor from foods they eat. Usually "junk food" of red meats can cause it to have a not-so-pleasant odor. Eating more fruits and vegetables can make it clear up. Also wearing polyester or spandex can cause odor. only wear cotton underwear because the other materials can cause the vagina to not be able to get proper airing and it gets a fowl odor. In fact, sleeping with your lower garments off at night can help too. Using harsh soaps, or soaps with a strong scent can make the vagina smell worse, believe it or not, you're better off with a lightly scented soap. They have a feminine was called Summer's Eve feminine wash that really helps with smell. Lastly, putting a cup of vinegar in your bath water can balance your PH levels and keep you from smelling bad. Don't use a douche.

  • Never because it's really bad for the vagina. A vagina is self cleaning. If it has an offensive odor a women needs to be seen by a Dr. Douching can change the pH balance and cause the growth of yeast or bacteria.

  • People still douche? Seriously, I thought it was common knowledge that you can screw up the pH or push bacteria and germs further north.

  • PP's have said, they're bad for you. Besides, I'm OCD when it comes to being clean down there..I've never had any smell issues. haha.

  • Probably once a week. I just have a douche that I fill up with water....
    I'd do it more often, but I often run out of hot water while I'm showering and there is no way that I am douching with cold water.
    Anyway I think that it's total BS that vaginas are self cleaning. Nothing in the human body is self cleaning.
