Why is raw fish sometime soaked in milk to make it taste less fishy?
The fishy smell of fish is due to the chemical trimethylamine or TMA. This chemical is hydrophobic, or in other words, is attracted to fats. The fats in milk therefore attract this fishy chemical (solubilizes it) helping remove it from the fish along with the oils. This is why fish known to be more oily are commonly soaked in milk as well.

Hygiene during menstruation?
When you are on your period, you should make sure you wash your vagina more. Also , if you find that there is an fishy smell , try put a bit of deodorant on your thighs.

Does plain yogurt really work for vaginal fishy smell?
No it does not. It's a myth. If you have a yeast infection the coolness can make the itch feel better but that's it. If it smells like rotten fish you have a infection and needs meds. The normal smell of a vagina is kinda fishy and you should never douche. Douching disrupts the natural flora of the vagina and makes it easier to get infections. The vagina is selfcleaning hence the discharge.
