I am 27 weeks pregnant and I have never smelled so bad down below before. During this entire pregnacy I always smell down there no matter how much I clean. What is up???

  • I wouldn't say I smell bad, but I smell strong to *me* -- my sense of smell becomes like a super human power when I am pregnant. My husband insists he doesn't smell anything and I don't smell different to him. My discharge is heavier (which is perfectly normal).. Definitely bring your concerns to your doctor. Signs of an infection would be discharge that is green or yellow (like when you blow your nose during a bad cold), or yeast which is white and clumpy. Your labia may look red and inflamed or itch. Those would be the most obvious signs.

  • Talk to your doc, but I could definitely smell myself more than usual. Be careful about cleaning; you don't want to over clean. That can put things out of balance and increase your risk of getting some kind of infection.

  • it does change a lot when your pregnant, but if it doesn't go away its more likely an infection then just being dirty so you need to get it checked out
