I have a really strong odor from my vagina... I have been std checked and came up clean for all of those. but i was too embarrassed to tell my dr. about the odor... its been ongoing a long time (almost a year)..... I KNOW I am very clean and wash properly... I am just really confused and don't know what to do! My husband does not even participate in foreplay anymore...and even though he hasn't said it, I know why! thats how offensive it can be! does anyoen know anything i can do???

  • Hi Debra, there is another thread on here u should look at as there is a lot of information on it that could help u......the name of thread is......"Chronic Bacterial Vaginosis" Also u should talk to ur husband about this as maybe he is also part of the problem & u both want to sort it out......Two heads are better than one ! Good luck & i hope this helps :)

  • You should get a pap and see what that turns up. I imagine you really have something. Try the tests again with your doctor. If you're embarassed, then switch to a female doctor and do the tests again. Your husband could also get tested to see if anything turns up on him. I'm sure he has it, too, whatever it is.

I'm sure he has it, too, whatever it is. he and I have both been checked, and I have several times since this started (when i was pregnant I elected to be tested for std's even though I had already been tested several months earlier, and since i've had the baby my husband and i have both been tested for stds). thanks for the advice so far, i am going to make an appointment with my dr soon, because i can't take it anymore...but any more advice anyone has for the mean time is much appreciated!

We found a solution to her vaginal odors believe it or not with a product she got at a restaurant supply convention called "Breath Test".It's a breath freshener that eliminates eliminates alcohol odor as well as food and tobacco odors. It's 100% organic/green and made from Food grade kelp and water. One night we were being silly and playing and sprayed a bit on her vagina and it actually removed her strong odor.

  • I had that for years. You should take a probiotic with a glass of cranberry juice everyday. It turns out that I had a mild imbalance in my urinary tract...Take a strong probiotic, that contains at lease 50 billion of several strains....After a month, it will be gone.
