Hi, my vagina seems to have a sent to it. I do wash there. How do I keep it smelling fresh? Shave all the time? etc!

Wear panty-liners, use a baby wipe or wash every time you go to the toilet. Er in terms of hair - keep it not too long if you're going to have hair there.

Buy unscented soap for use there. Your pH balance could be off if you use harsh soaps. Try baby soaps which are non-scented or even just warm water.

If your discharge has changed, check that you don't have an infection. You can look up symptoms on the NHS website. Alternatively, speak to your GP.

I'd advise against panty liners, because they can harbour bacteria and don't allow air to flow. Cotton knickers are said to be the best.

Most vulvas (the whole area is called the vulva) have a slight smell, though. If it is troubling you, go to a nurse or a clinic. Could just be your cycle, or stress, or you're not drinking enough water. Hope that helped!

Maybe you have an infection? Definitely go to the doctors. Avoid using bubble bath/shower gel in that area, try using fem fresh products

Don't use any soaps or shower gels or baby wipes. If you really want to you can get a special pH balanced wash but doctors just recommend using water.

If it smells really bad then you might have bacterial vaginosis (not an STI). Have a look on the NHS website for symptoms and if you think you might have it then go to the doctors.

If you shower every day it should not smell.

I'm not convinced this is a serious thread though, op. *raises eyebrow*
