breath issues...

I'm a healthy 30 year old female with a good life...but have a problem that could jeopardize it.

I brush and floss my teeth morning and night, and use Listerine, etc, but it seems like my breath has a "sulfur-like" smell to it increasingly lately despite what I do, sometimes I get a whiff of it when I am flossing, or opening my mouth really wide. A friend of mine said to me that she had noticed it about 6 weeks ago.

My husband only admitted to me after much prodding and begging that he too notices it, but that it doesn't bother him at all (and he still kisses me as passionately as before). In fact he indicated that it's just "how I smell/taste" and he loves it...not sure if that's a compliment or not. Our lovemaking, foreplay, etc is not at all diminished, and in fact is better than it was since I switched from the Pill to a copper IUD (off topic, sorry), but I'm concerned this "breath problem" will eventually get worse and reach a point that he can't stand it anymore.

What could this be? I haven't changed my diet considerably, nothing else I can think of. What can I do?

Re: breath issues...

do you suffer from allergies? drainage could be giving you that wonderful taste/smell to your breath. My hubby has alot of allergies and something as simple as drinking a glass of milk at the very end of the meal will give him awful breath as it sours in his mouth due to the allergies. You might want to do some invistigative work and see if you have changed your diet any or if you are suffering from allergies...that could be it.
