| | Different odor before period
This has been going on for quite some time now. Usually about a day or two before the start of my period, a strange vaginal odor occurs. The thing is...this only happens in that one to two day period. Throughout the rest of the month and even during my period the odor isn't there. In fact, I really don't have an odor outside these 2 days. I certainly do shower once or twice a day and change my underwear at least twice, if not a panty liner. Perhaps it is due to a hormonal change that causes other things to take place that the sex-ed teachers refused to teach us. Is it a change in the bacteria of the vagina, since a different fluid will be passing by in a short while? Does anyone else experience a change like this during the few days before menstruation?
Ah...at least I'm forewarned as to when I should sleep with a maxi...
Also, I read something about Summer's Eve products. Although for a one or two day situation I don't think I would necessarily need to take such measures, but I'm curious. Do these actually work?
