Vaginal odor is defined as any odor that originates from the vagina. It’s normal for your vagina to have a slight odor given it’s an opening to the interior of the body, but a strong vaginal smell, such as a fishy vaginal odor, could indicate a bigger problem and needs a bigger solution.


Have you ever thought wnat causes vaginal odour?

There are many factors that causes vaginal odour, factors such as:
Bacterial vaginosis — an overgrowth of normally occurring vaginal bacteria — is the most common vaginal infection that causes a vaginal odor.

Trichomoniasis — a sexually transmitted infection — also can lead to
vaginal odor . Chlamydia and gonorrhea infections usually don’t cause vaginal odors.

Poor Hygiene and Sweating —–It should be no surprise that poor hygiene is a cause of vaginal odor. A sweaty groin area can definitely produce this embarrassing smell. It may seem obvious, but scientifically, the reason for this is because the external genitals have special glands called apocrine sweat glands, which are also found in the armpits, nipples, ear canals, eyelids and wings of your nostrils. These glands secrete an oily fluid that’s metabolized by bacteria on your skin, ultimately producing a noticeable smell.

I have received so many emails, DM’s about “Remedy for vaginal odour” so I have finally decided to make write ups about “NATURAL EFFECTIVE REMEDIES FOR VAGINAL ODOUR”
