Vaginal odor is a natural occurrence. It is perfectly normal for every woman to have her own distinct vagina smell or "aroma"
A woman's vaginal smell that comes from her vaginal glands is due to:-
So, no two vaginas smell alike.
Occasionally, we might be more self conscious about our vagina odor. But there
shouldn't be any cause for concern when it is not noticeable by others.
The menstrual cycle plays a part in how our vagina smells. The smell is mild and very pleasant (musky) around mid-cycle. The odor is stronger right before and after menses.
And it is normal when your vagina odor becomes stronger during foreplay. This is very arousing to your partner and heightens his sexual excitement. It is this "aroma" that drives him wild, to bury his face in our intimate area and taste it.
Causes for normal vagina odor to turn bad, "fishy" or foul smelling are:-
Good vagina hygiene such as:-

Most women who have given birth do experience urine leakage when we have the flu or bouts of coughing. We do wear pads or panty liners to absorb the sudden outflow of urine, right?
Panty liners or pads
smells awful when they are soaked with urine. Do change them. And wash or wipe the vagina with
baby wipes every time you put on fresh liners.

Vaginal infections such as bacterial vaginosis and vaginal yeast infection release
But, if symptoms do not subside after 5-7 days, please see a doctor to rule out that they are not STD related infections.
Douching is not necessary. Scented douches disrupts the colony of good bacteria that lives in the vagina. This could lead to bacterial vaginosis or (BV) which gives off a "fishy" smell.
STDs such as Chlamydia, gonorrhea and trichomoniasis cause bad vaginal smell, discharge and painful urination.
If you have symptoms of the above STDs do not try to self-cure. You need to be treated by a doctor who will prescribe a course of antibiotics.
A vaginal fistula is an abnormal opening or passage between the vagina and another organ such as the bladder, urethra or rectum.
It causes a lot of emotional distress as the fistula lets urine or faeces pass into the vagina which causes embarrassing soiling problems that cannot be controlled (incontinence). There could also be a foul smelling discharge or gas coming from the vagina.
Other than odor, the genital
area may get infected and sore too.
There is no alternative cure for vaginal fistula other than surgery to close up the passage to restore normal urinary and bladder functions.
Cervical cancer is a type of cancer that occurs at the cervix. The cervix is the lowest part of the uterus that connects to the vagina. Various strains of the human pappilomavirus (HPV) plays a role in causing most cases of cervical cancer.
Early cervical cancer generally shows no signs or symptoms. As the cancer progresses, there could be a watery, bloody and foul smelling vaginal discharge.
Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID) is an infection of the female reproductive organs. One of the main causes of PID is complications arising from untreated Chlamydia and gonorrhea.
Other than pain in the lower abdomen, smelly vagina odor is another symptom of PID.Back to top
