How to Get Rid of Vaginal Odor

1 of 3

Vaginal odor is a very common problem that most women have to deal with at least once or twice in their life.

Vaginal odor can be due to a number of reasons, such as bacterial growth, yeast infections, poor hygiene, hormonal changes, and sexually transmitted diseases.

If the problem is due to infection, there may be symptoms like redness, itching, burning and irritation in the vaginal area. A fishy odor down there, in particular, is caused by bacterial vaginosis.

No matter what the reason, vaginal odor can be very embarrassing. There are many natural remedies to help treat vaginal odor.

home remedies for vaginal odor

Here are the top 10 ways to get rid of vaginal odor.

1. Apple Cider Vinegar

Due to its antibacterial and antiseptic properties, apple cider vinegar can be used to fight vaginal odor. In fact, taking a bath with apple cider vinegar is one of the simplest ways to get rid of the bad odor. This will help fight off the toxins and bacteria that cause vaginal odor. It will also help restore the acidic quality of the vaginal flora.

  • Mix two cups of apple cider vinegar in warm bath water. Soak in it for about 20 minutes. Follow this remedy several times a week to get quick results.
  • You can also drink a glass of water mixed with one or two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar daily.

2. Baking Soda

Baking soda is another ingredient that can be used to balance the pH level in your body. When the pH level is in balance, the problem of vaginal odor will dissipate.

  1. Add one-half cup of baking soda to your bathwater.
  2. Soak your lower body in it for about 20 minutes.
  3. Dry yourself thoroughly with a clean towel. This remedy will help fight a yeast infection and can help get rid of odor quickly.

3. Yogurt

Another good ingredient that can be used to treat vaginal odor is yogurt. Yogurt is rich in lactobacillus bacteria, which help fight candida infection (one of the most common causes of vaginal odor) and restore the normal vaginal pH level. Once the pH level is balanced, the vaginal odor will be gone.

  • Eat two cups of unsweetened, plain yogurt daily. You can also take probiotic supplements.
  • Another option is to soak a tampon in plain yogurt and insert it into your body. Leave it in for a few hours, and rinse the area thoroughly after removing the tampon.

4. White Vinegar

White vinegar has the power to neutralize odors by breaking down odor proteins. A white vinegar rinse will help eliminate vaginal odor. It will also help restore pH levels in the vagina.

  1. Mix one-half cup each of white vinegar and salt in lukewarm bath water.
  2. Soak in it for a few minutes.
  3. Follow this remedy several times a week.

5. Tea Tree Oil

Tea tree oil contains strong antifungal as well as antiseptic properties, and thus it can be used to get rid of unpleasant vaginal odor. It will help get rid of bacteria that are contributing to the problem.

  • Add three drops of tea tree oil to a cup of water. Use this solution to rinse the affected area daily or several times a week.
  • Alternatively, dip a tampon in olive oil and then put a little tea tree oil on it. Insert the tampon and leave it in for at least one hour. Do this several times a week.

6. Garlic

Garlic is a natural antibiotic that can be great for dealing with vaginal infections as well as vaginal odor. The antifungal properties present in garlic will help fight a yeast infection and help your body get rid of bad bacteria.

  • Eat garlic in raw or cooked form on a daily basis. You can eat one or two raw garlic cloves on an empty stomach with a glass of warm water. You can also add garlic cloves or its paste to your dishes and salads.
  • Another option is to put a piece of garlic in the vagina for an hour or two. Do this daily or a few times a week until you get rid of the problem.

  1. I have a smelling discharge and I’ve been trying white vinneger and salt but nothing is happening pls I need help

    1. go to your doctor. you either have a yeast infection, bacterial vaginosis, or an std/sti. the best way to get rid of smelly discharge problems is to take a visit to your doctor’s office and take the antibiotics or advice they give you and follow it until they told you to. DON’T EVER STOP ANTIBIOTICS JUST BECAUSE YOU FEEL BETTER, IT WILL COME BACK AND IT WILL COME BACK QUICKLY.
      hope this helped!

        1. it s better you go to your gyne coz the doctor will give you the advice that u need.. when i had the vaginal discharge with a funny smell i had diagnosed with cancer.. better be cautious than sorry…

          1. Ok I’m having a smelly discharge I went to my obgyn and to a urgent care and they both told me I was fine. But it didn’t start till I decided to put vinegar in the tub for the first timeand I’m very sensitive. What should I do? Please help

        2. Some plaese help me i have been recognizing these bumps near my vagin an a creamish discharge which has a fishy smell it is so irritating cause it itches an burns

          1. Well, if you have bumps I would assume you have razor bumps. And for the smell try changing your diet. If that’s not the case then idk

          2. the bumps might be warts, and the discharge of because of those warts….go see your doctor for antibiotics and cream for the warts

          3. It sounds to me like it may be herpesvirus. You may be surprised to know how many people actually have or have been exposed to the virus. Don’t hesitate to see a doctor and be very honest. You can take medicine to limit the number of outbreaks. If it is positive for herpesvirus, being diagnosed asap is best to limit the severity and number of outbreak episodes. Good luck & feel better!!

          4. It may be genital herpes. I was diagnosed with it as well. The treatment might be helpful as to remove the bumps but if the creamish discharge continues it might just be just some discharge that needs other attention. I am still getting this discharge and I was treated. The gynecologist told me I had further problems which may be caused due to lack of water, not enough vitamins things that is healthy. I hope that I was helpful,

      1. Some antibiotics will make it worsen and if the promblem comes bk that means it’s used to the medicine so in some cases that don’t work

        1. Yes, Lord I bakin in the tub and it works. I draw minimal of water in the tub where it came over my legs with 11/2cup of bakin soda. I had smell that wouldnt quick. The doctor. keep saying it BV so tired

          1. Hi Brown, where do I purchase Baking Soda. Is Baking Soda the same thing as Bicarbonate of Soda.

        1. R u ladies serious about not knowing where to purchase baking soda! You can purchase it at the grocery store where the baking isle is!! Aduh!!!

          1. Baking soda is not available, and not used, in many other countries. So, yes, they are most likely serious depending on their location.

      1. Baking soda worked for me too for a few days then I stopped drinking soda and only drink water and cranberry juice and now the smell is completely gone

        1. Tea tree oil does help the odor I had it in a spray bottle sprayed some on my area. And on a wash cloth gently washed and it was good for hours and hours. The apple vinegar and baking soda I mixed in a bath together did great

          1. So you drink it not bath with it and the measurement? Please help antibiotic reduced the smell but not completely out.

        1. apparently someone has never cooked before 🙂 baking soda and baking powder are not the same things and can be found in a grocery store baking isle…Baking soda can also be used in refrig to absorb any odors from food.

      2. The baking soda was magic.. Im on my period and it even controlled that beast. 1 bath 1 time and everything is gone, why didn’t I know of this earlier…….

        1. Seriously??? Baking Soda…. Arm & Hammer is a popular brand… some people put an open box in the fridge to control and absorb odors. It’s a yellow box and it’s in the cooking isle with the flour.

        2. Arm & Hammer baking soda, girl! The arm in the red ring in a goldish yellow box. Your mama might have some in the back of her frigde. Lol. I’m serious though.

          1. Omg I’m gonna try the bath I’m so tired of my daughter saying dammn mom you smell take a shower like duh why didn’t I think of the that.its so embarrassing cuz even after ive showered used summer eve wash I still come out not feeling summer fresh ={

    2. A tablespoon of apple cider vinegar to a glass of water, consume once in the afternoon every day, besides, drinks plenty of water during the day, hope it helps you.

      1. also – people that do not take care of the smell right away – it gets in your clothing , espiecially streachy clothing – the smell is hard to elimanate-even washing them – the smell will come back again as soon as your body warms them up again– throw them away , and keep yourself clean.

    3. I suggest you drink baking soda and mix it with warm water once a day and eat yoguart,soak ur lower part with baking soda and dry urslf wit a clean towel

    4. You most probably in your cycle where you are ovulating. …you could just have infection I would suggest you see a doctor ….


        1. I tried a garlic clove…overnight. I can already tell a difference. I’m getting ready to start my period tomorrow so Im glad ..I will really clean out. A huge difference. It really did the trick. I had a slight odor before and not much discharge but was enough for me to notice. It’s already gone..just garlic and that will go away. Do not douucche! It’s bad ladies! Good luck 🙂

    5. Vinegar and salt will not work. Try the baking soda remedy. A half cup of baking soda in warm bath water. Soak for 20 minutes in it.

      As long as u r not irritated, redness, burning or foul discharge. This remedy should work. Otherwise, go c a doctor.

    6. I am going to try the baking soda. My obgyn told me no femanine wash nor douching. They are very bad for you. She said to just use dove soap but its not working. After intercourse it smells horrible and ecen sometimes on its own. Its very embarrassing for me bc my fiance tries not to say it but i know it smells. Well omw to the store ty.

    7. I stumbled on this site yesterday after years of VO but especially horrible the last two weeks! I did the tampon insert with a few drops of tea tree oil, more olive oil, and dipped in yogurt and the fish smell is completely gone!

    8. I tried the 1/2 c. Of baking soda in a shallow bath. It totally worked. The odor was so bad. It’s completely gone. I just did it this morning , so I will see if it keeps it away. Baking soda gets rid of bad smelly odors in shoes too.


  3. @ boitu you should go get summer’s eve feminime wash and summer’s eve sweet romance douche drink plenty of water and use plain yogurt on a tampon it really does work. White vinegar is good to use after your menstrual to make the vagina tight but for odor I recommend the summer’s eve wash and along with plain yogurt.

    1. No no no! So sorry to step on toes, but douching is very bad for your vagina. You have bacteria inside your vagina that are not only beneficial, but they are absolutely necessary! When you douche you clean out that bacteria, and then they return with an angry vengeance. You will have an over abundance of bacteria and will end up with an infection and an even worse odor. Your vagina is very good at cleaning itself. You should only clean the outer parts of your vagina. Having an OBGYN in the family certainly helps. Use a mild soap on your outer lips and always wipe front to back!

      1. The odor is natural and has purpose. God made all things for a purpose. And the purpose for using it is not for everyone or everybody’s use. The use of the vagina is is only for a married couple and of delivery for a baby. Secondly, Its true that the vagina has a good cleansing itself. Me is only using a plain water in washing my vagina…I only wash my vagina twice a day. Once in the morning during my bath time and once in the evening before bed time. It works!

        1. I’m married and very committed as is my husband and we have PH odor issues. I’ve been very careful with bringing my relationship to God so I don’t think this has anything to do with that. Although I agree a healthy sexual relationship should be best when married ect.

    2. Never use the summers eve. Even though it states PH balanced even douching with “vinegar and water” can be too harsh for the flora. The other methods are probably be ok but full blown douching with SE products of vinegar might just mask the problem for a few days then it could ske it worse. Yogurt, baking soda ect maybe the garlic? Or doctors office visit. It’s so hard with the Ph issue…

    1. @Jeanette .. when using the tampon/yogurt method, would i have to douche after i remove the tampon? or leave, whats left, inside? please reply 🙂


      1. I wouldn’t recommend douching after taking the yogurt tampon out because it could upset the natural pH again. My suggestion would be to take a quick, warm bath with a cup of apple cider vinegar (or baking soda) after the tampon is removed. If access to a bath is not available, wipe with a clean washcloth dampened with warm water. If the yogurt is left inside for a while, it will not cause any harm. Hope this was helpful to you, dear.

  4. From someone that battled vaginal odor for YEARS, none of these home remedies work. The only thing that works is Metronidazole. You have to get it from your gynecologist, or go to a planned parenthood or free clinic if you don’t have insurance. It comes in gel or pill form (I recommend the vaginal gel form called Metrogel because the pill makes you nauseous). The smell disappears on the very 1st day you use it but you have to continue use for 5-7 days to make sure all the bacteria is gone. Also avoid allowing your boyfriend to ejaculate in you as that usually triggers the odor to come back. I’ve been odor free now for about 4 years

    1. Sometimes antibiotics are needed, but this bacteria is tenacious and usually comes back. I suggest even if using antibiotics to use natural remedies afterwards to keep it clean. This will help keep the bad bacteria away and keep the pH at a healthy level.
      I eat yogurt after taking antibiotics. One thing that helped me, changed my life, was rinsing with water after every time I went to the bathroom. Like a bidet; I used a plant watering pot. This has done the most to keep me healthy there. If I start to get a little ‘off’, I rinse with chamomile tea. Chamomile tea rinse is another great help for smell or bacterial problems.

      1. The TV show “The Doctors” had a segment on “How to keep the Vagina odor under control”…believe it or not they said to rinse using water after every bathroom visit. They even gave all the women a rinse spray bottle to use. I wish I had written down the name of the bottle because I would like to purchase one for myself.

        1. wow thats really interesting because I am a Muslim and there are certain hygiene rules in islam which has to be followed for example having to wash your privates with water when going to toilet which seems to have health benefits as well.

          1. yh I am a muslim too and I got excited when I read that washing ur genitals wid water can help too.Islam is good

    2. i have the gel it hasn’t helped but i Keep using it, the ejaculation. i didn’t know mads it worse. thanks for the info.

      1. It helps kill the odor after a man ejaculates because about an hour after he does , the sperm start dying IDC what anyone says I’ve always a tablespoon of white vinegar and warm water to rinse out after sex , because when you leave it inside no matter how much your vagina is supposed to cleanse itself that bacteria still leaves a horrible fish odor and I’ve never had a problem after doing so

        1. My doctor explained to me that after sex women need to urinate to flush the urinary tract to keep bacteria from developing.

        2. how do you insert the vinegar? a douche bottle or? because I want to try it. after intercourse I have that odor and Idk what to do other than bathe

    3. All these hime remedies did work for me and that too very effectively….. Remedies like this have kept me idir free for almost 7 years now and that too without any side effects!

  5. I had the metrogel and it gave me bad yeast infection the pills are ok but the problem just keeps coming back I’ve tried the apple cider vinegar bath and it’s good but I have also decided to do the garlic cloves inserts overnight and that also is workin fine I’m happy to say I’m odor free

  6. Try Himalaya V gel. It works wonders! Its also very reasonable. Do not insert untreated fingers down there as you tend to keep reinfecting yourself. Otherwise you and your partner has to go see the doctor.

  7. I have a problem weith a bad smell from my labia. I’ve tried antibiotic creams but without result. Am now trying vineagar, thanks alot for this tip!

    1. HOLY SH*TFIRE it worked! 😮 😮 😮 !!

      I poured a bit of white vinegar on a cottonpad and dotted on my labia, the smell disappeared and have been gone since, it’s now been 14 days and still no odour. I am SO happy!! 😀 I’ve had this problem recurring since 1999 and now itäs cured! I’ve tried every damn antibiotic there is and the doctors told me it had gotten chronic and to not hope anymore but learn to live with it. Now itäs gone! GONE! :o!!

      I can only say: WOW, and SUPER DUPER THANKS!

        1. Pls I have vaginal itching bt no odour, can this white vinegar work for it too, and where can I get the white vinegar? Thanks

      1. Omg I had an odor for the first time after a long period. It was going on for a few days so I got the white vinegar and dabbed it with the cotton same way you did. I also drank water with the apple cider vinegar. And pineapple juice. Odor gone after one day! Repeated day 2, totally gone! Woohoo thanks!

        1. Here’s a question, are you able to have sex after that smell is gone or will it come back if you do. If I try the remedies and I don’t notice a odor is it alright to have intercourse? I’ve been dating a really nice guy and would like to be intimate with him, but I’m so worried that odor will come back while we’re together. Any help is greatly appreciated.

          1. I keep a spray bottle with lemon oil and water for use after toileting. Best thing ever. If it comes back after sex, than your partner may need to see the doctor as well

  8. Umm like I always say, “You eat garbage, you’re gonna smell, look, taste, and feel like garbage!”

    Seriously, diet plays a huge key in everything having to do with our health and bodies…meat eaters are the stinkiest people…I am not a vegetarian but I barely eat meat, so yea…I mean you think some random sweaty person has BO, well your eating habits smell don’t just come out of your pores you know…they come out of everywhere! And you smell, can you imagine how you taste?? YUCK.



    1. I’ve noticed a change in my body n this odor is one. MN said it best u r what u eat n what you take in. I’m a smoker and believe that doesn’t help either .
      So I’ve decided to drink more water, eat more fruits veggies n yogurt, and include a natural suppliment to my diet. I’ll keep you posted.

    2. Maybe u r garbage!hw TF can u say that bout people you don’t know?most people eat veggies,fruit healthy foods,DR know it all ! Doesn’t meen you’d be immune to any infection/ illness,in the 1st instance Y are you on the site if you didn’t have such a problem as indicated ???don’t you think you should keep your critism to yourself instead of talking crap that you got no clue/suffers from+pretend to be all hunky dory?

      1. I think you should probably check your spelling and grammar before you criticize anyone. ” got no clue” have no clue sweetie. some people look at this site just out of curiosity.

      2. @ anon you go girl you took the words right out of my mouth. health issues do not discriminate and just because someone has issue as such these doesn’t make them trash.

      3. yes, well said ANON , of course bad eating habbits don’t help but it will definitely not prevent an infection…what if a person eats right and gets the infection from another infected person ??

    3. I hope you know that vegans and vegetarians also smell to, doesn’t mean you eat healthy doesn’t mean you can’t smell.you smell what you eat and not everyone smells like what they eat and by the way vegans and overweight ppl smell worse than a vegetarian and meat eaters when they sweat so your the one with no common sense so if i was you don’t lecture ppl when you’re talking out of your ass.

    4. this is a very sensitive subject for most women. There is no needto berudeandinsesitive..and vinegar wrks gr8:-)

      1. You are right, this is a sensitive issue. Example: When you take a bath and you see a ring in the tub when the water is gone…does that mean you were dirty? Or does it mean the body is getting rid of old dead cells? Ans: the ring mean you were getting rid of old dead cells. When the vagina smell…is it normal or abnormal? The answer can be “YES” and it can be “NO”. Everyone is different and the body react to situations in a different way. The vagina is no different…it has to be dealt with according to the situation at hand.

    5. You made me laugh so hard! But you are sooo right!!! Eat fresh and definately reduce the meat from your diet. I myself do do a douche but with just a spoon of white vinegar in water and it feels so fresh. I believe your body can take care of itself, but if its stinks a natural remedie wont hurt at all. I have been doing it for years. Almost every day and its like brushing my teeth

      1. Ive heard that so many times before.I once heard a vegetarian say they dont use deodorant anymore.Because they dont get musty anymore.

    6. Wow you said it right. It’s the meat and sugars. Forget about all the vinegar and baking soda bull drink water and Tea . Just eat healthy and you will smell healthy.

  9. Medicated baby powder with zinc is excellent. Dab a palm’s amount on and you won’t smell anything until your next shower!

  10. I have been diagnosed with vaginal yeast since 2010.its a white thick discharge.they gave me vaginal cream @ a local clinick with some pills but they dont seem to work..i went there again 2011/12 thy gave me same thing..until they injected me with this painful needle saying it will cure me..but it has not.and now its smelling veri bad,espc during sexual intercours #so embarrasing

    1. I had that same problems years ago, a white thick discharge that had a foul order. I went to the doctor and was told i had Vaginitis…i was treated and the problem went away. I can tell you if you have intercourse with this problem, the partner have to be treated also. In men it does not present the same symptoms.

    1. My great-grand mother was a midwife, she did home deliveries in the 1960’s. I remember my mother telling us that she used a Astringent called Alum. She would use it with the mothers to control the bleeding and spotting after the delivery. The real purpose was to tighten the vagina. Put a very tiny piece wrapped in cotton and insert it in the vagina….it will really tighten that area…i used it for curiosity and it worked.

  11. I have a bad vagina odour and my panties tend to have a dark colour in the crotch sometimes my vagina smells like vicks very strong

  12. i have used lactacyed from boots chemist it is lovely and it works smells lovely makes you feel comfortable no more pantyliners and it gave me confidence

  13. OMG! I have most of these things but I never stick to them cause I want rapid results but I think sticking to the vinegar wash, consuming plain yorgut and drinking lots of water would actually help out a lot

    Thanx A Milliaaaaaaao ; )

  14. Hi @ all woman who posted , i must say its a relieve knowing that im nt the only one with this , bt i must say i hv been experiencing this problem for 15 yrs n its nt easy especially wen it comes to making love with my man n i thank god that he is so understanding he is very supportiv i remember telling him abt it wen we first met 2 yrs ago n he never judged me bt he was supportive , we even went to the doctor together last year n we were both given treatment n the doctor advised us too stay faithful, bt the saddest part it did came bck n i went for treatment n he aslo took the pills n was also given n injection, bt it was gone for 6 months, now its back again n im nt going back to the clinic cos they will tell me that im nt being faithful to one partner bt im now using the home remedies n i must sy they r helping. Another thing i hv fibroids that gives me hell wen im in ma periods n i bleeds tooo much, n im going for n op on the 30th of july this year n i hope all will go well. Thanks a lot.

  15. Thanks a lot ladies 4 the info I’ll try them and keep u posted, cz smelling bad in there is very embarrassing…

  16. I have quit smoking for about 14 days, which is a nice change. Rather hard at first. Always that first week. I usually only last a week, but I think this is it for good. 🙂
    That helped with the odor, but since I quit smoking!
    BUT! – I have been eating non stop subconsciously for the replacement.
    Only realised in the last couple of days! So I’ve cut down.
    Hard to eat healthy as I am a young student on a budget, but I am trying my best.
    I will be trying the white vinegar trick when I get some.
    Attempting bath remedies tomorrow afternoon/night when I get home (in bed with the laptop)
    Finishing off the last of the oranges/fruits for breakfast tomorrow.
    I will try others if this continues! DEFINITELY diet that plays a part!!!
    Due to me being a young and dumb teen that eats junk and more junk :p
    Good luck lovely ladies x

  17. Thank you very much 4 the advice. Atleast now I know am not alone in this situation. Am very young and I thought maybe I have been cursed or something but now I know am not. I am definetly going to try all the tips. Thank you:):):)

  18. wow. I learn Alot today, and it’s very good to talk about something like that. I will try the vinegar and hopefully I get a good result..

  19. I’m a gynecologist, and I invented a new natural vitamin suppository called NeuEve that gets rid vaginal odors, dryness and BV. It’s made out of 100% natural ingredients, vitamin C and vitamin E. I’ve tested it on myself, and my friends and acquaintances and there have really been incredible results!

    1. I started using this for the odor and for the dryness from menopause. It has worked for me. Very happy with this product. Will continue using and telling friends about this also.
      Thank you!!!!

  20. Hi ladies!
    As a general rule, I recommend metronidazole for bad-smelling vaginal discharge that fits the description of BV. Metronidazole can cause yeast infection, so what I tell my patients is to first do a course of metro, and THEN a course of Diflucan – 150 mg tablet on day 1 and on day 3 AFTER the cure with metronidzole is over. Usually works like a charm for my patients 🙂

    That being said. A gynaecological exam is something you should have done, they can take samples to figure out which bacteria you have, if any, if you have a yeast infection, if you have an STD etc., and you can get your pap-smear done.

    Using lactobacilli are great when on antibiotics, and if you are very bothered by odor, you can take a course of lactobacilli vaginal capsules after each period just to “clean up” in there.

    I do not recommend douching as it will harm the natural bacterial/fungal flora in your vajayjay 😉

    I have had these problems my self, but they are far gone now. If i feel there might be a yeast infection sneaking around the corner, I just take 150 mg diflucan and I’m good to go.

    Good luck 🙂

  21. OMG! I’m stunned. After only one go with white vinegar I’ve already had outstanding results. I’ll continue on, but had I only known it was so easy months ago then it would have made it all so much easier. I can’t thank you enough for the idea.

  22. I tried vinegar before but i didnt work.. Thank Godness I have the most understanding boyfriend in the whole universe.. 😀

  23. Wow I’m going to try the remedies.
    will keep u posted.

    the problem is so embarrassing, u r even afraid to walk pass ppl fearing they will smell the odour.


  24. Wow after so many years of bad odor n using antiboitics only for the odor 2 come back again, last night I cleaned my labia with white vinegar n 2day I ve been fresh the whole day.

  25. it everygirls dream to be health and fresh but some obstacles just appears from no where. well it hurts to talk about this but its ur health and nothing smell bad like ur vagina wen it has ordors so do the right thing and get check.

  26. I decided to look up info on this problem, and am so happy i did because i am not alone with this issue. I have never had any insecurities with my body (while naked), or while during foreplay and making love. I am 48 years old and know what i want during foreplay and am confident enough to take charge in foreplay. Now not only am i insecure about my body, but also during foreplay and making love. I went from having sex everyday to only once every couple of weeks. It’s caused from my partner saying (while going downtown for the first time) “wow why do you smell so bad do you not wash enough”? So reading and finding ways to help with this problem i’m not feeling hopeless but relieved!!!! thank you, thank you, thank you ladies for sharing the same problem and letting others know it happens and its not you

  27. thanks for the help and being able to talk to others with this problem because those who do not suffer from this would only look at us like we are either dirty of very permiscuous!!

  28. I dont understand how people say to avoid sugar because candida that cause yeast infections like sugar. But then you are told to eat more fruit which tends to be citrus fruits which are full of sugar. Wouldn’t that make it worse?

  29. Hi ladies, av been aving Odor for 8, thanks to ur post the baking soda has been realy helpfull, now am odorless. But av been aving lot of discharge recently, pls a advice on how to stop or limited it is needed, pls post if u av a clue

I mean I havee BIG dreams to accomplish but not like this :(… But however tthough I’ll be trying the garlic along with probiotics… And hopefully this will be a thing of the past… I’ll keep you posted ladies… I hope u all find something that works for u. God Bless!!!


  32. thank god i am not the only one going thru this i thought something was wrong with me..ofter sex i smell so bad i don’t even want to be intermate sometime i am constantly washing myself to make sure i don’t smell but ofter coming out of the shower i still can smell myself . I will try a few of these ideas that i see on here and hope it works. thks to all

  33. I have had this for over 20 yrs. The antibiotic pills worked but as soon as I had intercourse it came back. Went on Metrogel for 5 yrs …using after intercourse and it never went away. Just helped the bad smell after intercourse for a few days. From what I can understand here…the white vinegar bath with salt and baking soda help. There is nothing that we put internally? I will try the baths if it works. Does it matter how much I use of each. Or do I drink the Baking soda?

  34. The garlic absolutely helps!!!… Try it… If u wanna eliminate it 4 gud insert acidophilus capsules on consecutive nights after the garlic treatment… Please try this ladies… Its about time we all knew how to get rid of it PERMANANTLY!!!!

  35. Hi Ladies,
    I never had an odor problem anywhere, but since going through menopause I have this sweet odor coming from the vagina area, I don’t like it. I don’t use deodorant under my arms, because it makes me itch so I started using a natural deodorant, salt crystals I bought at a health food store many years ago. It works great for under the arms! I still sweat, but the salt prevents bacteria from forming, so there isn’t any odor under my arms. I didn’t use the salt crystal under my arms one day and I had the same sweet odor from my under arms and realized that the odor from the Vagina is the same that was under my arms. I have tried rolling the salt crystal on the skin around the vagina and the odor stopped. After menopause I started sweating in more places. I feel the sweating must be due to the hormonal changes. The salt crystal is a little irritating so I hesitate using it in the vagina area. I will try the other natural remedies to see if they work. I feel better figuring out why I smell. It’s just another symptom of menopause. It’s not something that is coming from inside the vagina, in my case it’s from the sweat on the outside. I hope this helps. It really helped me when I figured it out.

  36. does these things really work because my odor isn’t that bad but it does have a smell to it and I want it to go away but I know a couple of reasons why it might smell and or have odor I wear tight jeans but there not to to tight and I have cotton panties some are loose fit and some are tight fitting panties and I do have intercourse from time to time could that cause my odor need help!

  37. Helpful info ladies, thank you so much. I’ll spread the word and help inform others as well. My heart is after the well being of a woman….An odor free cookie can boost one’s confidence. Bless you ladies.

  38. Hey ladies, thanks for sharing so much hope uplifting info. My odor problem is something new and it embarrasses me to stand up next to friends or walk pass people cos I fear they will smell it. I have tried probiotics and they only helped for a day or 2 and the odor came back. Also tried some pills one has to insert inside the vagina to no avail. I will try the vinegar and will post feedback. Cheers

    1. there’s no problem in taking it out..just push it in where your finger be able to reach it..some woman tied it with thread…

  39. Hi everyone,
    I am glad to know that I am not the only one who is experiencing the same thing with the vaginal odor. I tried the White Vinegar with my bath along with the salt. I don’t smell an odor anymore, and I am feeling refreshed and great.

  40. I’ve tried drinking enough water but d more i urinate d more dis odour comes out,i wil try d other remedies,just hope it wil work for me as well

  41. I recently experience horrible vag odor for a few months, worse smell I’ve ever experienced! I started to douche (very bad idea) so I soaked a tampon in Apple cider vinegar & water inserted it & the smell left completely it’s been 1 day now so hopefully it doesn’t come back, I made an appointment w/ my gyn to be safe.

    1. Thats awesome that the tampon soaked with vinegar worked….ive been trying to find if anyone has done this/ whether it works, as it seems more simple to do than having a bath or soaking in it. How long did you keep the tampon in tho?

  42. Hi ladies thank u verey much for this tips am going to try it i believe will work wonders as i read the testimonies are good i believe the remedies will work mariculous all the best to those are still using it,i thank all ladies

    1. no they are not the same, baking powder is a raising agent while baking soda is a leaving agent, bicarbonate of soda and baking soda are the same

  43. ladies i hv a bad odor too n in tryin da baking powder way.wil let u knw if it works out…its so embarrasing b4 n durin sex dat bad smell just pops up..its like u cn jz dig urslf under da blankies n neva get out

    1. Well, if you haven’t made it to a Dr by now(and are still alive, God willing) you’ve probably lost fertility, spread nfection to other organs or gone blind or something.Hope she followed Up*Readers please take this very seriously. And for heavens sake, rinse yourself out when you bath or shower-at least every other day.

  44. Thank you so much for this home remedies. Having unpleasant odor to your vagina is so embarrass especially when we make love with my husband. I really feel aloof now with my partner everytime he wants to have sex with me.

  45. doctor cream doesn’t always help, try n to fine better things to do, instead of have n to pay for another doctors visit, what helps best, boyfriend n I have notice smell, not real bad, but after sex seem to be worse, I’m 39 no std ect… but this problem comes and goes, please someone tell me what I can do, have tried some of these things here, but comes back, how offten can you do some of these things without hurting your Ph too???

  46. Apple cider vinegar works drink 2 tsp and a cup of grapefruit juice . It eliminates odor and is a fat burner and a bloated stomach.

  47. I would think if someone gets a discharge with a very bad odour they most likely have an infection. My practice nurse when I went for a smear test kept telling me I had thrush as she could see the discharge at the neck of the womb. She did a test and sent it off to be tested and it came back negative I did not have thrush infection. The discharge I used to get was quite normal for most women. When I went through the menopause the discharge got much better not so often and much less heavy. Now I am post-menopausal I have noticed it has changed again. Sometimes it was very uncomfortable as it made my panties wet. I now use a feminine wash and sometimes wipes the ones without to much perfume. And a pantie liner although you have to be careful of those as they can make you sore I have found. It must be horrible to suffer bad odour to I never get that myself thankfully. You do have to be careful not to make things worse by upsetting the delicate balance in that area.

  48. I tried the baking soda method by pouring some in my bath water and the odor was instantly gone. My vagina doesn’t smell as strong as it used to and it feels a whole lot cleaner down there.

  49. I also experiencing the same way. What I have observed was after a sexual intercourse or having sex the fluids that comes out form each other brought a bad smell among ladies. Or if there are hormone imbalance the secretion turns into bad smell. I don’t know if these observations are right but whatever reasons why we women are battling in these kind of problems even hygienic was observed, hope to be solved very soon.

  50. My vergina got a bad fishy dead smell because had sex with 2 different guys one way of getting bad bacteria yes, this smell so shameful it like its all over me im ashamed to be around ppl but im using apply cider to help with problem, smell will soon be gone.

  51. Having a bad vaginal discharge for almost 2 years now, I REAALLY want to get rid of it. It’s been sooo embarrassing, especially during class because it will start smelling and people will say stuff. Humiliating. I’ve been to the doctors multiple times but I always get back the same results…no infection, no STI/STD. They really don’t know why my body is producing this terrible (fishy) smelling discharge. They didn’t want to prescribe any medications to me because they didn’t want to mess with my pH levels incase the antibiotics might have started a real infection down there. I tried the baking soda remedy yesterday by drinking a cup of warm water and a teaspoon of it and I threw up about 4 times later that night. I’ve also sat in half a cup of baking soda for 20 mins for the past two days and that has worked a little but I’m afraid it won’t be permanent 🙁 i eat really healthy, drink plenty of water, and exercise a good amount but there seems to be no solution to this. It’s stressful, making my life awful and I need help but my mom and I don’t know what to do anymore. Help anyone?? I’m 15 and have had my period for 3 and a half years now if that helps anything. And my discharge is daily.

  52. I Just got married a couple months ago and I just got paragard IUD. So we thought yay no more condoms right? I really prefer not to use them especially because my husband and I are both clean and have no std or anything. So after just the first time of having sex without one I got this horrible smell thing I never use to have a problem with ever!! Its depressing. Especially because the second time it smelled worse! Does anyone on here know if I will ever be able to have unprotected sex again? Because I’m tired of struggling. Either I’m struggling with a both control or a smell or something and I just wanna start enjoying intimacy rather then getting angry about the problems every time. I tried some home remedies and they work but it always comes back. Is there anything preventative?? 🙁

    1. Sometimes your mans sperm and your lubricant dont mix well, if its only after sex thats most likely the reason.

      I keep an odor unless I keep shaved. Ive been to the Dr and no issues just need to shave.

  53. i detected a fishy odor anytime i have affair with my fiancee for the past one and half years now…and it has generated a lot of problem between us.on reading this remedies and last two nights i made her sit in a warm water mix with half cup of baking soda and the odor has gone.thanks

  54. I had awful vaginal odor off and on for years. It had a fishy type of smell. I started using Femanol several years ago and have not had a problem since.

    1. II have this problem for twenty years I’m glad I found this page I’m going to try all this home remedies tnks ladies

  55. I dont have stds bv or anything like that there is no discharge but I do drink apple cider vinegar soak in epsom salt and use baking soda I think the smell is from ph level using stong bath gels body wash and etc…. because everyone wants to smell good douching will make it worst if you can smell yourself yes everyone can smell you too you can keep the smell under control so its better to try everything that kills bacteria lol

  56. Seriously MN???????
    Wahoo!!!!!! I really wonder how some people can be so narrow minded still in this century!!!!!!
    Because you don’t experience one problem doesn’t make you any better than those who are experiencing it!!!!
    Hello oooooooh!!!!!!!!

  57. I dont have a STD/infection, but there is an awful smell there and i shower 2 times a day but them smell is always there when i wake up and throughout the day. My discharge isn’t thick or any weird color but it goes through my pants!! Someone leave a good remedy for me to get rid of this…Ive tried waterworks and femanol it did NOT work

  58. Ive been having a fishy smell and i wonder what will actually works asap because my anniversary is today and i want to have intercourse but also what would make a females cum taste better quickly also in a few hours

    1. Ok, when I was 15 my underarms smelled. My mom bought me baking soda n I used it for a week n I have been odor free since.

      I later had stinky feet n I decided to use the remedy my mom recommended n guess what? Stink gone.

      After seX with my bubu I would smell like him down therev for a week or two n I hated it so I mixed baking soda with water n sprayed it on the outer part of my v jay jay n it smells like….. Water. Love it.

      I don’t know about others but baking soda killed all the smells I had in my life.

      My bubu said if I eat pineapple my v jay jay tastes amazing so I am friends with pineapples n pure pineapple juice n his always down there.

    1. I use tea tree oil, a few drops on a wet white washcloth that has been wrung out before shaking several drops of the tea tree oil on the cloth and wiping out and around. It is also good to use fragrance free baby wipes with the tea tree during bathroom times. This is good both for urination or bowel movement cleanliness. Tea Tree oil keeps you fresh all day and infections away. Believe it or not, a little bleach in your bathwater is a true odor eliminator. You can also put tea tree oil in your bathwater.

  59. how many of you fat cows need to diet and drink more Wattterrrrrrrrrrr… stop putting shit fast food, fatty food in your bodies and magically you will start to smell better.. Also If your not drinking a half gallon – 1 gallon of water a day then you are not drinking enough, you see water flushes out all that crap in your system.. so if you are like pretty much every other smelly things out there and drinking only 1 – 3 cups of water per day and think your doing enough then go ahead and keep fishing it up and crying about how bad you smell.. ”coffee, soda, high fat-sodium-sugary foods, and low water intake = strait up fishy insecure mess” …. hate me all you want but all you smelly girls out there, just try drinking 1 gallon of water a day for 2 weeks and i promise you better skin, hair, energy, health, and yesssss you will smell better too!!!

    1. WOW!! Seriously W O W!!
      Britt.. Out of all these ladies who have an issue that is common worldwide, you decide to be the judgmental IGNORANT SELF CENTERED B!TCH that has to put them down.. I don’t even know where you live or how far away you are from me, but I can tell you one thing: Your VAGINA sinks so bad I can already smell you here it my house. We all don’t have time to hate you because you are just another random chick, sorry I meant to say dumb b!tch who is probably going through worse that vaginal odor thinking she is better than all the other WOMEN here. So why don’t you take the baking soda, white vinegar, apple cider vinegar, garlic, along with some good soap , bleach and YOUR water gallon… Then shove it in your mouth NOT your vagina, YOUR MOUTH. To see if it cleans you up or at least soak your body along with your face so you won’t be talking or writing BS to women you don’t even know who have done nothing to offend you, yet you still did it out of pure ignorance and foolishness. Good day to you dear BRITT.

      1. Ladies, ladies, ladies….Britt’s approach was wrong, but the info seems quite valid. Look at the message, not the messager. I can vouch for exactly what was written. When my diet is off and I lack water, I Don’t smell as fresh and it can be embarrassing if I have an encounter and the VJ doesn’t smell quite right. When I read Britt’s response (as crude as the approach was), there was sooo much valuable info.

        All of you have given helpful info hear and I am glad to see us helping each other with a common occurance among women!

        Keep cool ladies… and none of us can afford to belittle anyone. This is a great site and we need to be able to be honest and not judged!


    3. Brit…
      You’re ignorant! I’m 5’8, 128 lbs, and only consume vitamins, fruits, veggies, and lean white meats. Occasionally, I eat dairy products too. I’m active, physically fit, and drink only water. I bathe regularly and have no stds/infections…. Yet, I still have femine odor! So oh wise one, please tell me what I’m doing wrong…. Since you seem to know it all.

    4. Sweetheart let’s see your pic cause if I send you mine you wouldn’t believe my age and sometimes it’s a imbalance in your body so don’t down other women cause it could be you??

    5. I wonder if anyone else thinks your as great as you do… doubt it… your the worst UGLY there is… It makes you feel good to put people down… you may be what you consider “perfect” on the outside… but you are definitely ROTTEN on the inside… way worse… take care…🤓

  60. I’ve been struggling with what seems to be a yeast infection for a while now. I was ashamed to go to the doctor and decided that I would try some home remedies but that failed so I finally went to the doctor. I was given some antibiotics which I took as instructed, the yeast seemed to go away but when the antibiotics finished it came right back. I want it to leave permanently!

  61. hai ladies, am a man wth a cute lady by my side, i love her. she has this problem of vaginal odor, its worse durin sex and thot of browsin to find possible ways to support her to end this. am not ashamed of her…..i wil help her.

  62. Pls its realy annoying how my boyfriend always complains of my vaginal ordour but I have no idea of what to do. Someone said I should use hot water and antiseptic in it, I’v done it but to no avail. I think I will have to try this white vinegar. Where do I find it…..I need a reply please

  63. I’ve been having dis problem about a year now, n I’ve been taking some pills n cream bt It ddnt work. Try white viniger with salt n soak ur lower part, drink 1 tablespoon of baking soda, soak a tampon in a plan unsweeted yourght, or boing d leave of mango n drink dat water. Never use soap ever. This did work 4 m hope it will work 4 u 2.

  64. Gonna try this, 2. Baking Soda
    Baking soda is another ingredient that can be used to balance the pH level in your body. When the pH level is in balance, the problem of vaginal odor will dissipate.

    Simply mix one teaspoon of baking soda in a glass of warm water and drink it once a day for a few days.
    Alternatively, you can add one-half cup of baking soda to your bathwater. Soak your lower body in it for about 20 minutes. Dry yourself thoroughly with a clean towel. This remedy will help fight a yeast infection and can help get rid of odor quickly.

    I have one question, do I need to clean it after soaking my lower body or just leave it and dry?

  65. I have no idea if anyone knows about alum ( in Philippines it is called TAWAS). It is powder like & sold in Filipino/Asian stores just a 1/2 teaspoon diluted in water then use it for rinsing/washing you’ll have odor free & tighter vagina. Try it, works great!!! & also u can use only water for washing not douches, not soaps. ACV & white vinegar is good too.

  66. After giving birth to my second child, I was discharged only to return to the emergency room with such a foul odor that people could smell at a great distance away. Talk about embarrassing!! Needless to say I was admitted to the hospital and pumped with antibiotics. My body hadn’t discharged everything after giving birth. And the infection I got could have killed me had I not went in to get checked. Needless to say, now I am very sensitive to any odor from my lady bits. It’s true the foods you eat will change the odor. Just as broccoli or brussel sprouts give your urine a strong odor if you eat a lot of them in your diet. Too much of some of these foods can also affect not only your urine, but also your body odor as well as vaginal odors. Word of advice, watch what you eat and make note of how those foods affect your odor. And if something is just not right or so foul you can smell yourself…go get checked. It could be something very serious.

  67. Thank you guys for the infos… i thought that only me is experiencing this problem. I have white discharge n has a foul odor. Dnt know if some people also smell this odor everytime i passes by. I already used different femnine wash but the smell always comes back. I will try the white vinegar and baking soda, hope it will work!

  68. Apple cider vinager in water works!! One dose did it for me almost immediately. Doesn’t taste all that great, but it works! Thank you for the insight!!

  69. I have a vaginal oder and I’m not sure what it’s from. It’s not a fishy smell or any smelly discharge. I only wonder though because I had bacterial vaginosis after having my son. I took the medication for it. But just all of a sudden I have to keep washing and washing cuz I have a slight oder.

  70. My boyfriend refuses to go down on me and pretends he isn’t interested in oral sex. I feel horrible though, its not fair ! I’m going to get rid of this evil smell. I think I’ll try the white vinegar for a week and sit on his face . My muffinless days will soon be over !!!!

  71. WOW!!!!!!!!!!!! Holy Moly!!! @Queen u go girl!!!! ladies NO DOUCHING!!!!!! stress as well can change the bodies natural sent. the vinegar is awesome…. 😉

  72. Thanks soooo much!!! I’ll try anyone I can get my hands on. It will really boost my confidence esp when my boyfriend goes down. I’ll get back with a result. Hope it works.

  73. Thanks a lot home remedies,will try d garlic n keep on eatin vegetables n fruit thanks a whole lot,finally i can get rid of dat fowl smell yayyyy

  74. Damn, thanks a lot ladies. I don’t know if my problem is different but I get the bad odour a couple of days before my menstrual cycle, smells like rotting meat (soooo embarrassing) but then after my period it smells SUPER clean you’d swear I’m lying. I’ll try the white vinegar and bicarb.

  75. Mine smells so bad I actually hate standing wher ther is people.. Il try the vineger and salt tonight and il post back. thanks ladies its good to know im not the only one

    God bless

    1. Penny, it’s something in your diet. Try a vegan diet for 21 days. No meat, dairy, soda, fast food. Load up on fruits, veggies, water, water, water! Try it and note the changes in your body. Also consume raw garlic daily while doing this. =)

  76. Everyone is asking how to get rid of the odor, but no one is inquiring about what is actually causing the odor. All the remedies may work for some but not all. 9 out of 10 if you’re experiencing vaginal odor, it’s your diet. Your vagina is your check engine light ladies, it’s telling you your body needs a check up. I have taken the prescription gel that’s mentioned above and the problem always returned after awhile. It wasn’t until I did a 3 day colon hydrotherapy session that the problem disappeared. Whenever I eat something such as meat, dairy or drink alcohol, I start having discharge within a couple of days. As long as I eat fresh foods, I’m completely fine. Pay attention to your body, hope this helps.

  77. Well i use to have dissame problem with u girls before i have been to the Dr and did some test and they said am okay that nothing is wrong with me but am not comfortable becos i no that some is wrong one of the nurses said that it is from my man sperm that has the odors not me so i stop having sex for some few months still the odors didn’t stop so i went to a pharmacy and they gave me femanol to insert in my vagina and i did and that is the end of my problem but people that there own is chronic pls make use of apple or white vinegar tnks

  78. So Ive been battling with this problem for about two years now, and the smell/discharge comes and goes. I noticed that it was occurring the most when I would have a lot of sugar and didn’t have enough water. When I had stop drinking juice and cut out sugar, it would not happen. But its almost impossible for me to stay away from sugar. I recently drank orange juice for two days, the smell came on sooo bad, I guess do to the sugar and citric acid. Anyways I tried the vinegar after reading this post today, I wet a cotton pad with warm water and white vinegar and wiped my labia, as well as anal area. Instantly the smell/discharge went away! Im sure it prob won’t stay away but it was nice to know there was a quick fix available! I hope this works for someone!!

  79. I have always had a white thick discharge and minor odor since I started my period so naturally its been several years. I was always told by doctors it was “normal”. I have noticed off and on the odor would be much worse at times, but it always managed to fix itself out. Recently the last couple months it has been really bad and consistent. It is so embarrassing! especially when trying to have an active sex life with your partner. Good thing he has been supportive! Last night after reading all these remedies, I went to the store and got the baking soda and Apple Cider Vinegar. I also got some pineapple as I heard this helps too. I soaked in a bath with the Baking soda for 20 minutes, drank a glass of water with Apple Cider Vinegar, and ate some pineapple. I am also taking a probiotic which is supposed to help with the healthy bacteria and fighting off bad bacteria which might be causing the odor. Today the odor has diminished greatly. I will do another soak tonight and continue that for a couple weeks and see what happens.

  80. I haven’t tried any of these but I do know that a hydrogen peroxide douche helps me. I know they say douching isn’t healthy but it helps. I do 1 part HP, 2 parts water. It helps with itching also.

  81. I don’t get the garlic, do you just eat it or just put it in your panties? And can you just put the white vinegar on cotton and clean the vaginal area?

  82. I’ve dealt with this same thing for years and it got worse after I had a kid. Bad smell, wet panties all the time… having to wear a panty liner all day long (which just worsens it,.) It’s embarrassing. I’m married and my husband doesn’t care and pretends he doesn’t even notice, so I don’t have to worry about that. I just worry that people I get close to while I’m working can smell it. I’m paranoid about it.

    I’m trying the probiotics and will do the yogurt thing tomorrow… will try the bath with apple cider vinegar, too. And I know I don’t drink enough water. I’m a busy person and I’ve put my own health on the back burner. Time to start drinking more water and eating more fruits, too!

  83. Just a thought….could the use of heavily scented laundry soaps and fabric softeners be part of this problem? Wearing underwear all day long (and maybe pyjamas all night long) could be marinating the genitals in a soap residue. It might help to start using unscented laundry products for anything touching sensitive skin.

  84. Bad smell can be so embarrassing.Thanx ladies for all this info.God bless u all and a pray that this problem be solved.

  85. I ve been having dis ish of vaginal discharge and odour. Thank u all so very much for these wonderful tips. I ll definitely try dem out and get bk to u guyz.

  86. White vinegar does work actually better than the apple cider vinegar. I drink 2 table spoons of it in water 2 times a day and I wash area with it daily. I use dove soap on the rest of my body. No smells at all even after sweating. My confidence is finally back. Been suffering for a year now and no prescribed creams or gels work. Good luck to you all.

  87. Oh wow! Thanks a lot ladies… I tried the garlic last night. Crushed two cloves of garlic, added warm water, a bit of lemon juice and olive oil to it. Drank. And then I put a piece of garlic down there for a few minutes cause I was scared it might go all the way in and be hard to retrieve…haha! Worked wonders! Woke up smelling fresh today…all day long!

    Tonight I’ve soaked in white vinegar+salt+water and inserted a tampon soaked with yogurt. I hope I never have any vaginal odor problems again…

  88. Wow!! I think i’ll try one of these methods, because i’ve been to gyne severel times with the same issue prescribed antibiotics and antifungal creams even done pap smear test. But the itching keeps on coming back after few months though my discharge is normal.

  89. Hello ladies…I’m at the first trimester of pregnancy and since the pregnancy I’ve had this awful discharge down there. I was wondering if I could use the tempon dipped in garlic and put it there since I’m pregnant…Thanx

  90. woooow ive been battling this problem too. taking notes of the remedies…im happy that women support each other..

  91. OMG Thank you ladies you all rock! This page is my fav I have been doing the plain yoghurt tampoon method and must say it works especially after your cycle.

  92. Ladies omg it worked praying the sting not to come bCk again.

    I soaked my lower body with bicarbonate of Soda for 20 mins and clean my vagina with a clean towel then I dampen a clean panty liner with white vinegar and wire it for few mins. And drank two spoons of Apple cider with water and went to bed. It’s now the next day I can confidently say no smell no smell. Thank u all for this

  95. Thank god for people like u. Am trying the garlic and also soaking in white vinegar. I av had this problem for years. I cried many times almost just give upon life. I prayed to God and beg him to solve My problem. He led me to this page. My husband said am the first woman he has ever been with who had this problem. I felt so alone and cry myself to sleep many times. Hope this will work.

  96. Thank you all so much for this info. I was always embarrassed by my smelly odor down under. And yesterday I looked to see what I could do. I didn’t have time for a bath so I used a water bottle put apple cider vinegar and water in it while showering. My God it did the trick! I went around all day confident and carefree. Also to freshen up I used the vinegar and water on paper towels put it in a bag and bam! Lol

  97. Wow this is huge for and I am overwhelmed that I ain’t the only one thats going this bad odur discharge smell worst part I am sixteen years old and still in high school I started having this problem in grade eight and now there’s two months left till am in grade 11 .this discharge smell has really affected my life that some of my school mates have noticed this bad odur which has really had a bad impact cause its really hurtful to hear someone say you smell like fish and its worstvof yo u got a bf there cause I have a bf who is the same class like me and I just pray if he hears this rumors of my bad odur it won’t make him think less of me besides I live a normal life a bath about two times a day but what s the us of doing that cause once the discharge is out no matter how small it is ,it smells really bad and sometimes I feel embarrassed to stand up if I was sitting cause am afraid it could smell the fish odur which has really affected my self esteem rigtg now am applying to go to new school because this discharge situation affected me really bad that a lot of my school mass know about and they probably think I don’t bath, its really hurtful.I just pray these remedies will he’ll cause I can face another embarrassment at my new school while its the reason why I am leaving my other school and am even I afraid t visit mymybf that I school cause I really love him and I don’t him to think less and feel disgusted once he smells the so called ‘fish odur’

  98. I am vegetarian eating an 80% raw diet (vegetarian since childhood), and I’ve suffered from vaginal smell most of my life since first getting my period. While I am sure diet helps for some women, that has not been the case for me even though my body is very alkaline.Thank you for your tips in the article and comments.

  99. Thank you all so much for your words, Deff going to try the baths and eatign and drinking healthier. My odor has bothered me long enough time to get rid of it and feel confident

    1. I really need your help guys, l have tried the garlic cloves in my vagina, I smelled good for sometime but immediately I had (protected sex), the smell began again. I really need your help please.

  100. I have tried using a cotton pad with white vinegar and wiping the area that works immediately the smell was gone I have since used the white vinegar again on a cotton pad and I am now taking a soak in white vinegar and salt water the smell has been gone since. I am going to increase my water and garlic intake and hopefully this works… So far so good although I have not been sexually active yet I will update

  101. This is so embarrassing I have revently been emitting a bad odor from “down there” Ive never had a problem like this before and also never smelt this odor either! It might be because I’ve not had much extra money to spend on underwear they have been washed over and over and Im going straight to the store tomorrow and everything but is there another reason? Stress or hormones? I just turned twenty six is this something I should be regularly expecting with getting a bit older lol idk but thank you for the remedies…

  102. I was having this same problem for the last 3 months. I tried vaginally soap and I douched but I still had a very bad odor during sex. One night I was thirsty and I got up and drunk a glass of cranberry juice and I notice the smell was gone the next time I had sex. It really worked for me.

  103. Hello ladies I’ve been struggling with GO for a while now and that fact that I seat a lot just makes it worse even changing my panty liner twice or three times in the afternoon. It’s embarrassing very embarrassing. I’m going to try baking soda tonight. Two table spoons and soak for how long though? Please help me out sisters. And how many times a day or a week?

  104. Your health-care practioner will prescribe 600 mg of boric acid in a capsule form. Insert into your vagina once a month after menstruation. You will need to fill your prescription at a compounding pharmacy. Good luck.

    1. Try taking garlic supplements. They’re just little gel pills and you can get them in any vitamin section. The first day I took them. Almost everything came out the next time I went to the restroom. Within 3 days gone. I’m on my 4th day and it’s absolutely gone

  110. Ladies you are heaven sent.Thank you very much.I am 26 and i have been struggling with a smelly cookie for the past three weeks.I am very hygienic and I use feminine gels to wash but despite all that,my cookie jus started smelling from nowhere.After going thru all of your comments, I went thru my mother’s kitchen and I came across the crushed garlic, it’s all natural without any added preservatives. I dipped a tampoon into the crushed garlic for a minute and with clean hands I removed some of the garlic crumbs that was on the tampoon then I inserted it into my vagina for 2 hours ,removed it and slept.it has worked like magic ladies.when I went to pee this morning I couldn’t smell anything, that odour has completely disappeared. I’m really excited, thank you very much.

  111. Try taking garlic supplements. They’re just little gel pills and you can get them in any vitamin section. The first day I took them. Almost everything came out the next time I went to the restroom. Within 3 days GONE. I’m on my 4th day and it’s absolutely GONE!!!!! I take 2 pills after breakfast and one after dinner. Seriously ladies, I’ve had the same problem for over two years and it was always so stressful wondering if I smell or if anyone was going to see my underwear. Before you stick anything foreign up there PLEASE PLEASE try this first. The pills were only $6 at HEB!

  114. Comment:I’ll say shower regularly and use mild soap and luke warm water to wash your vagina. change your panties every time you shower and use long lasting body spray I recommend any body spray for men…it lasts well…don’t spray the vagina please.

  116. it’s not my discharges that smell but my labia majora, that flower like where my clit is, it smells so bad, am very clean down there and eat healthy
    I clean after I pee but my vulva smells bad

  117. I don’t know what the problem is, I feel pains whenever I have sex, no matter the size of the penwis. I have yeast infections and now I can’t take the odour myself because it’s really bad. It’s itchy and painful as well. I’ve started taking apple cider vinegar for the past 2 days now. I just hope I become normal again.

  118. Use a wet wipe after using toilet paper. This really helps to get out all the bacteria that gets left in there after we pee. And shave because it reduces sweat
    also drink alot of water to rinse out your body of impurities.

  119. First of all, I had read some comments on here that are very insensitve. Some of these people have only shared their stories with hopes that they can finally find a solution to a rather embarrasing problem. The solution is pretty simple for some and a complete lifestyle change for others. After college, I started dating on OB/Gyn and I was surprised since this was her field of expertise, that she would periodically have this same problem. She did the meds, creams and pills and still the order would come back.

    When we had sexual relations, we would use condoms without lubricant. So this was not a factor. So one day she just decided enough was enough and douched with a lite mixture of Apple Cider Vinegar and distilled water and started taking hot baths rather than showers. Every other bath or so, she would mix Baking soda or Apple cider vinegar in with her bath water since it was a better alternative than constantly douching. I essance, it is was less invasive to sit in a hot tub for 20 mins than a constanly douching. She did it only the first time just to jump start the process and get things going.

    I immediately noticed a drastic difference after the first 3 days. Before, if I used the restroom inside of 30 mins after she did, i could smell her. After her clense and reverting back to bathing rather that always taking a shower made a solid difference. One thing she did notice was after sitting in a hot/warm tub of water for 30 minutes, she could shave her pubic hair down there much easier and not get razor bumps or in grown hair. (which also has a smell).

    Now, she has always been pretty athletic, drinks nothing but water and / or tea, has always eaten solid foods and has always stayed away from junk foods, canned foods, fatty meats and so on. She would always be eating Apples, Carrots, Celery sticks with peanut butter and then started making simple home made protein shakes for breakfast.

    She has always worked out at the gym and this helps release lactic acid which helps with the balance of vaginal flora.

    She still does this to this day. Point I am trying to make is she is an “Ideal model” of all that you are supposed to do, and still had the same problems as most of those posting here. In her case, changing to bathing rather than showering all the time, in culmination to what she already was doing ( Only water or tea, excercise, no junk food, more raw fruits and veggies) along with bathing in a tub.

    There were other things that she did that seemed to help like unscented fem wipes or washing after urination. This is just what I remember that she did and it worked like a charm.

    We are still friends today, and she is my wife’s gyno as well as her friend. My wife has adopted alot from her, but not everything…..She has to work on the junk food part more. But she bathes with additive in the bathwater such as ACV and BS, and all is well.

    I sincerely hope that this share will help some people.

  120. hey so I am only 13 and I play volleyball so the shorts don’t really help but I have a really really bad discharge and it is really embarrassing and smells I try and wear pantie liners but I read on here not to idk what to do and I cant talk to my parents about it so please any help will be mostly grateful I love to wear dresses but am scared to because I don’t want them to maybe smell or it go throw my underwear so please help I tried the tampon thing and it didn’t really help for more than 2 days
