  • have you tried to use summers eve feminine wash? its like 4.50 in walmart. but if you save up some extra change it will help. also they have lotions for that problem. but i would suggest the wash. and also douche if u dont. i would start doing it every 3 months or so

  • You're supposed to douch after periods and after sex. I don't use harsh chemicals I buy stuff from the health food store that is good for the bacterial environment of the vagina...I break open the herbal capsules and dissolve them in water. I don't care what anyone says about douching not being healthy if I had blood or semen on my hand I'd damn well wash it off and if it's inside me I will as well, I like oral and I'm not gonna let my man go down there if there's a big stink bomb waiting for him!

  • DON'T DOUCHE!!! it'll make it worse, it's only masking odor, the odor is coming from somewhere, did you start a new birth control? sometimes that can throw you off.

  • The ODOR comes from BLOOD and SEMEN ...good lord you gotta wash that shit out!!! Even if you use just water to douche!! Have some compasion for your men ladies!!!!

  • If the Dove works, get it. Even if you just use it for "down there" Or you could experiment other soaps. If this is new to you, find another method before planning to douche. LAst resort, yes, but the price for that is probly the same as what has worked in the past. Cut down on other brand name items, so you can use the right body wash.
