Why does the vagina smell?

Why does the vagina smell?The genital area is rich in sweat and sebaceous glands.

A very slight sweating, walking and playing sports, using synthetic underwear can make the vagina smell. Therefore, in order to prevent the smell of the vagina, attention should be paid to the cleanliness of the genital area. Tight and synthetic clothing should be avoided. Excessive washing to keep the genital area clean can cause infections. Some women don't want to touch their genitals because of their fear. This leads to vaginal odor due to not cleaning well.
exception from these cases, infections, especially those caused by bacteria and fungi, cause foul-smelling vaginal discharge. Depending on the severity of the infection, in addition to vaginal discharge, symptoms such as pain, burning, redness, fever are also observed. The infection can originate directly from the vagina, as well as from the Bartholin gland, cervix and pelvic region. Sometimes an infection in the large intestine opens into the vagina with a thin connecting line (rectovaginal fistula). This, in turn, causes infection and bad odor in the vagina.

How does the vagina smell go away?

Genital area care and cleanliness is the most important rule in protecting from infections. Not leaving the genital area moist after bathing and toilet protects against various infections, especially fungi. Vaginal douching disrupts the normal flora, creating a predisposition to infections. Therefore, the use of vaginal douching, creams, perfumes and solutions should be avoided as much as possible.
Avoiding the joint use of bath towels, the use of condoms, limiting the use of shared bathrooms and toilets will protect against sexually transmitted infections.
Avoiding unnecessary use of antibiotics protects against infections by preventing the reduction of beneficial bacteria in the vaginal flora.
