I have a problem... TMI

I have a smelly vag. That is the only way I can put it. I have been to the Gyno and she tells me there is nothing wrong. I am at wits end. I shower daily and am resorting to using summers eve wash. Has anyone else had this problem and was told there was nothing wrong? 

I know this is a silly post but I swear I am not a troll and this is an actual problem in my life. Also, I am a very clean person so I am freaking out about this. 

Anyone have any other advice other than "wash yourself" because I am doing that already, thanks!

Wonder if the ph level in your vagina could be off causing the odor? I know there are baking soda or vinegar douches depending if it's more alkaline or acidic. I also know that my docs discourage excessive douching because it can get rid of the friendly bacteria in the vagina along with the unfriendly. sorry I'm not more help.

Nope, I have the same problem. Nothing wrong, shower regularly, still has a smell. I hate it!

Thank you. For some reason, I didn't even think of trying douches!

Don't douche or use sprays or powders. They make it worse. I find it odd that your gyno thinks there's nothing wrong with a smelly vagina. All vaginas have a slight odor but it's not supposed to be offensive. Go to another doc. She didn't offer any advice or suggestions? When mine smelled my doc said it was bacterial vaginosis. I was given an antibiotic and it cleared up. She then told me to drink lots of water , eat plain Greek yogurt, or take a probiotic pill, take a multi vitamin and to stay away from fried and processed foods. Also stop wearing tight pants and lace or silk underwear. Definitely do not wear thongs! When you poop wipe from front to back and use unscented baby wipes. Trim or shave your pubic hairs. After you bathe let your vagina air out before putting on clothes. Make sure it's completely dry. I stand in front of a fan before I put my underwear on after I shower. Use a mild unscented soap and don't scrub. Use warm water to wash.
