There are quite a lot of unimportant factors that have been over looked by ladies which have majorly contributed in causing vaginal odor.
To start with healthy balanced vagina naturally has an acidic pH level as well as healthy bacteria to help keep infections away, that is to say, the vagina is self-cleansing.
Though it’s important to always keep your virginal area well maintained and catered for, it doesn’t necessarily mean high maintenance, but due diligence to keep it healthy.
For an example, wearing cotton panties ditching with nylons, keeps the area dry and prevents moist, is a few are ways to keep the area in top shape.
There is a normal saying that says prevention is better than cure, below are 5 causes of vaginal odor.
1. Vaginal douching
Your vagina doesn’t need to be douched all, what your vaginal needs is clean water to wash the area.
It’s strongly advised to keep any perfumed fragrances wash or soap away from your intimate area as they end up disrupting the PH level balance of the vagina.
2. Moist and sweat when exercising
Always clean up properly after exercising or engaging in any strenuous activity. The vagina become moistly or wet when exercising and if not washed can cause unpleasant odor in the area.
3. Condom allergies
Sexually active ladies should check for allergic reactions in the types of condoms worn during the ‘intimate session’ as research show reactions to condoms can cause funny vaginal odors.
If you suspect this might be the case, switch to another brand that suits the area.
4. Tight clothes and panties
Clothes and panties that are too tight around the vagina won’t allow the area ‘breathe’ causing odor from the area which is very unhealthy.
5. Excess pubic hair
When the hair around your pubic area is not tamed or trimmed regularly it can cause vaginal odour because sweat, moisturizer and more moistly substance get trapped in the area when not kept clean.
The best prevention is to shaving often and keep your pubic area clean as much as possible.
