using aby products will do more harm than good aquarding too most doctors or women. they cause infections and ichiness....one way to prefevent infections and odor is to take a shower daily and to wash in that area wish any body soap and if you are to do so, u will have fun filled no worrie no ordor winter:]
I have the same problem but only when I'm breastfeeding, then it goes away. I read somewhere that it is teh apocrine gland that may cause this. But I can't find much information on it. It is still there on me and I shower twice a day because of the odor. My husband can't smell it either. But I can. It is driving me crazy. I called my doctor for a physical.
i have this same exact thing! i have had this for years, and actually just posted a qestion about this in another forum..anyways. I have been diagnosed with nothing from my doctor 2 times, and diagnosed with a cervical infection and bacterial vaginosis (like u had mentioned) from planned parenthood. I can not find any answers either and its really embarrasing because i can smell it through my pants after about an hour or too, i have found mine to be brought on worse when im in a hot environment, but it still happens everyday....i also feel that people can smell it and im really embarresed by it. i know how you feel...im going to planned parent hood again tues ill give you an update see if they can conjure up a new infection that i have
DID YOU FIND OUT WHAT IT WAS?? MINE SEEMS TO GO AWAY IN THE SUMMER B/C OF WEARING SHORTS AND STUFF, NOW ITS FALL AND I'M SMELLING IT AGAIN(WEARING JEANS) THIS IS SOOO ANNOYING!!!
OH AND MY HUSBAND SAYS HE CAN'T SMELL IT EITHER, HOW WIERD!
Ok so I'm not crazy. My hubby also says he can't smell anything and of course, he gets closer than anyone including me.
try craberryjuice. Great detoxifier!
Believe me, I know what you are experiencing, as it was a major stress maker in my life for many years. I have tried everything, including the wrong things, such as odour maskers, perfumes, cleansers, feminine products, you name it, and have come to the conclusion that in absence of abnormal pathological conditions, Alice's bottom simply has a proper smell. Stronger than I would like, and efforts to abate it don't work. I have come to terms that it is just ME. The good news is that it is in all likelihood more noticeable to you than to anyone else.
I agree that we are more sensitive to our own odours than others, which is perplexing when a mate or lover says they cannot detect it or finds it non-offensive. Check off all the usual possibilities (BV, or bacterial vaginosis is the vastly most common cause of the famous "fishy" syndrome, so rule that out), but at some point, you may realise that your smells are just a part of your biological makeup. I would be surprised if this anxiety didn't trace back to Eve!! Please take care and have a wonderful week, all. Cheers, Ali
I wonder if this is something hereditary because my sister, mom and I recently talked about this and found that all three of us experience the same strong smell. I was told by a doctor that not wearing tight jeans will help and it's also good to go for light colored breathable underwear (cotton). Also my cousin who has the same issue said she uses deodorant on her legs around the area and that that helps keep the sweat minimal which she thinks assists with the odor as well.
Interesting question. It would make sense that those of us who tend to perspire easily would tend to have more sebaceous issues, i.e. odour. I would assume this tendency to sweat to be genetic, and therefore the odour of one's body would be as well. I am fair complected, and have always perspired so much that as a teen tennis player, I would have to wear a glove to keep from killing my doubles partner with my racquet! S'posin' I go this from my mum. Good news is it sounds like you have an extremely open family, at least as far as the females go. Mine would no sooner discuss the smell of our you-know-whats than they would politics (which is a sure way to start a huge fight during the holidays!) Take comfort in the fact that you and your female kin have this channel of communications, since many of us would long for it, but do not have it. Merry Christmas!
GO BUY EQUATE FEMInine wipes from walmart its in a pinkish or purples package of i think 48. those keep me goin to I hit the showers:) much love, hope for the best:D!
Please try a probiotic vaginal suppository!! They work I had all the same symptoms you can also try natural odor relief buy Monistat. It's a gel. The suppositories are spendy. $50 for the 6 day treatment. But I literally cried the first day I realized I was in a public place and the odor wasn't there! I only gave to use them occasionally now. Please give it a try!!
