Is it normal to have a smelly vagina?
dear, it has to smell since the area is moist with residue urine,vaginal mucus discharge,sweat in addition the pubic hair acts as a collecting band and further enhances the smell. the healthy vagina will have tolerable smell
No the secretions of a healthy vagina should not be strong or unpleasant to smell. If you have a smelly or discoloured vaginal discharge, please see a doctor. This will be easy to resolve and there is no need to feel ashamed. If a woman is at the end of the day and in need of a shower, the moist inner lips of her vagina may have a strong odour and this is normal.
If your vagina is itchy and smelly, you most likely have an infection. These infections may go away on their own, but usually it is best to seek medical treatment for them. Do NOT use douches or vaginal deodorants since your vagina cleanses itself naturally and any artificial products can throw off its ability to do so!
