how do you wash your vag? Anonymous 8247

i have literally struggled with vaginal odor for 2-3 years now. it is my biggest shame. i dont know what to do about it. i know to wipe front to back, i have been tested for infections and the results came back negative and i was even given anti biotics just in case i guess. i wash my vagina and even after i've dried it there is still a unpleasant smell. once an hour or two pass the smell is absolutely gross and noticeable. i am also someone who gets smegma. i try to wash everything but i just dont understand how i can properly clean and rinse my butthole and taint without getting bacteria in my vagina. i used to not wash very well and i think that is when my smegma problem developed. since then i started using a detachable shower head but i must be doing something wrong if i still stink after a shower. help ;_;

Bump. Also, how the hell do you wash your clit hood if it's super tiny? It's like my clit is a tiny hole area and nothing else

OP, some questions:
>How are you washing your vagina?
Vaginas are self cleaning so you only need to sop the outside gently, don't put anything soapy inside, even. It will be uncomfortable can cause it to smell for some reason.

>What products are you using?

A normal bar of soap or shower gel should be enough.

>Do you have pubic hair?

Some people find they feel cleaner with less hair. I don't recommend fully shaving or waxing due to the itching but maybe trimming can help.

>What type of underwear do you wear?

Stick to plain 100% cotton knickers. Anything artificial will smell, silk a bit too.

Also, what do you mean by smegma? Are you trans? Do you mean discharge? That's normal.

thanks so much. i'm a biological born female. it's like, when i pull back my labia majora there is some white cottage cheese like substance. from the research i've done it is not reason for concern and is similar to what men get under their foreskin. it smells like crap though and i guess i'm genetically predisposed to it

Just as men do, if women don't wash enough, they can get smegma (collection of dead skin cells, secreted oil, etc.) that builds up in the wrinkles/folds of the vulva.

Meant to say "even just a little bit"

That's normal, I have it too. Your vagina will smell a little bit if you smear it on your hand or sniff it close.

>Do you live in a hot country?

You can sweat down there and that can be noticeable but it happens to everyone. Not much you can do but wear cool clothes (cotton) and shower more often.

Thought of more questions OP:

>What type of underwear are you wearing?

Thongs and French knickers can bunch up and be uncomfortable, making you have more discharge to lubricate it or something. Buy the most basic plain comfortable cotton knickers and stick to them.

>Are you wearing underwear at night?

Try sleeping naked or only in a nightgown (cotton) to let things breathe.

Might be a diet problem.

Am I the only one that always uses non-bacterial soap inside my vagina, and has never gotten infections?

I know the vagina is self-cleaning, but part of me wonders if that's a myth that you shouldn't wash it, but I'm obviously being anecdotal.

I've never even gotten a UTI before, but I'd feel gross if I didn't wash it with soap.

Vaginas are acidic inside while soap is alkali/basic. Washing with soap there upsets the balance.
