In Reply to: vaginal odour after showering? posted by Jennifer on November 29, 2000 at 11:55:38:
: I often have a vaginal odour that seems stronger after I shower. It is hard to describe, I don't think it is a "fishy" smell, more like "sweaty" or "musty". I'm not even sure if those are good words to describe it. Sometimes the smell is there all day long. Does anyone know what this could be?::
Without getting into a lot of details, my first instinct would be that is it the soap you are using. Sometimes soap interacts with the ammonia present in urine, and if there were trace amounts of urine before you bathed the odor could be stronger after soap is added to the mix. I cannot explain why the odor remians all day, unless you also coincidentally have a type of vaginitis.
