Treating Foul Vaginal Odor & Taste
Vaginal odor and taste can be a private subject, but nothing is too private for Mister Private. A womans genital odor and taste can depend upon genetics, age, hormonal balance, diet, exercise, hygiene and the menstrual cycle. A fishy smell could be the result of the overgrowth of vaginal bacteria and is more obvious after intercourse. Wearing tight undergarments made from materials other than cotton can also cause an undesirable odor.
|I Am Concerned That I Have a Foul Taste. How Can I Eliminate It?|
The vagina cleans itself and the natural acidity usually keeps bacteria in check, but it is a good idea to use an unscented soap on a daily basis. You could also douche or use a specialty cleanser or powder like Vagisil. Some women like to use a spray to freshen up throughout the day. You can also make sure you stay clean after you use the bathroom with feminine wipes. Make sure to wear cotton underwear during the day, and to wear a nightgown or loose pajama bottoms at night, to allow your vulva to "breathe."
Sometimes, certain foods (like processed foods, asparagus, garlic or dairy) can make you taste bitter or acidic. To obtain a sweeter, fresher flavor, drink lots of water and eat fruit, especially pineapple. The more fruits and veggies you consume, the better you will taste.
Honestly, your personal taste probably isnt as bad as you think. As long as you wash daily with a mild soap and eat healthy, you should have nothing to worry about.
