I have a very strong vaginal odor. I have normal colored discharge, but it smells the same. Not horrible though. There's no fishy odor, or anything FOUL. It's just a very strong odor.
If I could explain it well I could but the only way to describe it is that it smells like me.

I don't really like the way I smell so I want to know if it's normal to have a very strong vaginal odor, without any kind of infection or anything. I don't know if it makes sense when I say it smells like ME, but it does.

I'm not sexually active, and I'm 20 years old. I've never been sexually active.

Also, I know that the vagina cleans itself out, and that's where a lot of the discharge comes from. But I want to know if it's normal to have an amount of discharge to where you have to wear those little liners in your underwear to keep them from getting ruined.

Again, I don't have any infections or STDs. I'm not sexually active, so no worries there.

Oh, and when the vaginal discharge dries, it's supposed to dry into a color? That's the reason I wear the thin liners because when the discharge dries, it dries a brownish color. Is that normal?

Thanks. I was never comfortable enough with my mother to talk about these things so any answers you have, I really appreciate it.
