  • IMO you probably have a case of OCD. Have you talked to your doc about it?

  • Yup above me is right. Go talk to your doc and get referred to therapist. That behaviour is definitely not normal.

  • Make sure you are cleaning down there after you, shampoo and condition your hair!! They can make you smelly sometimes!

  • It's okay to want to be clean...nothing wrong with that. In that area there are different bacterias contributing to different odors that can range from extremely subtle to quite offensive, but I'm sure you are doing a fine job at controlling your odor. This is a concern to most women during the summer months when we tend to sweat a lot more there.

    Even if you do not have incontinence problems or poor health problems, buy some Vagisil shower wash to use in the shower and then some Vagisil powder for your panties. Vagisil has a nice smell that is not strong at all like most of the feminine hygiene sprays.

    If you do sweat a lot during the day in the summer heat and cannot change your panties frequently, wear an ultra-thin panty liner and change that frequently throughout the day. Just sprinkle some Vagisil powder on the fresh liner when you first put it on.

    Hope this helps a bit.
