Smelly vaginal odor can be very embarrassing, especially in social situations
I used to shun social situations as I fear that in close proximity, people would be aware of the foul vagina smell.
My recurrent bacterial vaginosis and vaginal yeast infection were the main cause of the bad vagina smell. I have noticed that antibiotics and medication cannot help much.
As a result I embarked on my search to eliminate foul vagina odor naturally. Through the years I have discovered that diet, supplements and lifestyle play a part in effectively managing my strong vagina odor.
Garlic is nature’s most effective antibiotic. Garlic supplements provide the body with a natural alternative to fight against viral, bacterial and fungal infections which are the main causes of smelly vaginal odor.
Consuming lots of meat and refined carbohydrates can contribute to strong vaginal odor. Vinegar helps to alkalize the acid produced from these foods. And if like most people you find it “distasteful” to drink vinegar, why not take a Mixed vinegar tablet?
Probiotics supplement, Alaczen helps balance vaginal PH levels and probiotic flora in the digestive and vaginal tract. By taking one tablet a day, I seldom have recurring BV and yeast infection. Even if I do have recurrence, the symptoms are mild and disappear in a day or two.
Reduce moisture in the pubic area
Reduce smelly vaginal odor by wearing panties and clothing made from natural and breathable material. Think linen and cotton. Natural fibers increase air flow, thus reducing moisture and sweating in the crotch.
Do Not Douch
Harmless bacteria and yeast co-exist in harmony in the vagina. The fragrance and chemicals in commercial douches disrupts this delicate balance, resulting in bacterial vaginosis or vaginal yeast infection, both of which are characterized by smelly vagina odor.
Besides, the streams of water from douches might force an infection into the reproductive tract and cause PID (pelvic inflammatory disease).
Discard and change panty liners frequently so that the panties will stay odorless and clean. Change the panties after bathing.
When menstruating, replace sanitary pads frequently and flush the genital with water before putting on a new pad. Change stained panties as stale blood smells.
Mineral Salt Bath
Dissolve half cup of mineral salt in a warm bath and soak for 15- 20 minutes twice a week. This is effective in relieving stress as well as rids smelly vaginal odor.
However, you cannot see results immediately with lifestyle changes, diet and supplements. Just be consistent. The bad vaginal odor will go away in 2 or 3 months.Back to top
