Ovulation Smells Fishy. Did you know that our vaginal odor is a big change for our couples? It’s like a pheromone of sexual attraction that awakens our boyfriends or husbands at some point.
Yes, vaginal odor is natural and every woman has a different smell. Occasionally, a woman may be more self-conscious about the smell her body is emitting. But there should not be any cause for concern, when it is not perceptible by others.
The smell of a healthy vagina is a specific odor that is a mixture of secretions from the sebaceous and apocrine sweat glands of the vulva and vaginal discharge. It is neither dirty nor unpleasant.

A bidet is a porcelain capsule, where one astride so that a stream of hot water to flow through the genital and anal region after urination and bowel movement. This is an excellent way to clean the folds and crevices of the genitals.
In the absence of a bidet, it is best to clean the private part with wet wipes or soft tissues after urinating and wiping from front to back after bowel movement and then rinse the anal and vaginal area with water.

The common symptoms of infection are abnormal vaginal discharge, itching, redness and swelling.
