When a women starts to experience feminine odor it can quite literally take over her life. When you start to smell the feminine odor you often wonder if anyone else can smell it too. You can become obsessed with the smell and find it hard to concentrate on anything else. Feminine odor is actually very common and as you will know most women will have some sort of smell but it’s when that feminine odor smell becomes excessive that we begin to worry.

Are you a lady who likes to wear sexy lacy underwear? Well the underwear you choose to wear can have a big effect on your feminine odor. Most lacy or modern underwear is made from nylon or a mix of nylon and other man made materials. These materials do not allow the vagina to breathe. Make sure you wear cotton underwear whenever possible, cotton is a natural product that will wick perspiration away from the vagina and allow it to breathe. It’s also quite a good idea to wear no underwear time to time. If you’re not brave enough to go out knickerless you can always try it in the privacy of your own home.

So what about cleaning. A lot of people will tell you shouldn’t over wash or not to wash more than once a day. This is only partly true. If you use harsh or heavily scented soaps then these can affect the pH balance of the vagina and therefore shouldn’t be used too often. If you use natural products that are ph balanced or without strong scent then there should be no real problem in the amount you wash. Of course it is not always convenient to bath or shower every time you fell you may have feminine odor but at those times you can use unscented feminine wipes, these are great for a quick clean and freshen up.
Another point on washing and hygiene is douching. Please do not douche it is not healthy for you and will always do more harm than good. You may think that with douching you are really cleaning the inside of the vagina and therefore washing away feminine odor but in fact what you are doing is unsettling the natural pH balance with in the vagina which will allow the growth of bad bacteria gardnerella which will infact course more and stronger feminine odor.
