vaginal alert

so lately i've been experiencing a horrible smell down there. i take showers everyday, i wear clean under wears, i do what i can to get rid of the smell. but the smell won't go away. it's annoying & embarrassing! it's also a strong scent & even starts smelling a little while after getting out of the shower.

Re: vaginal alert

Maybe you forgot to remove a tampax? Hey, it does happen sometimes, and from those symptoms you are describing. . .could be as simple as that.

Re: vaginal alert

If it's actually "horrible", it's probably a forgotten tampon (which smells pretty much like rotting meat).
If it's just mildly unpleasant, it's probably bacterial vaginosis, a common and not necessarily sexually transmitted vaginal infection, which will clear up with the proper sort of antibiotics.

Good luck.
