3 Shocking Causes Of Embarrassing Smelly Vaginal Odour

with No Comments

First things first: There is no such thing as an odourless vagina.

Most Nigerian women have some form of discharge at most times of the month, which is a part of the vaginas way of cleaning itself.

Depending on the time of your menstrual cycle the discharge of your vagina changes in colour and odour.

Also it is important to mention that the structure, smell & colour changes during sexual arousal & during pregnancy.

However, if the smell becomes unpleasant or strong, or if your discharge is rather yellowish-greenish, it may well be a problem that you need to further examine.

Here is a list of three of the main causes for vaginal odours, and how to deal with them.

Remember these are only the most common reasons among women.

There can be many other reasons that I will dive deeper into in another article.


3 Common Causes Of Embarrassing Smelly Vaginal Odour

  1. Bacterial Vaginosis {Approx. 1 in 3 Women suffer from BV}

The vagina, like many parts of the body, is regulated by bacteria (e.g. Lactobacilli).

In a healthy vagina, there will be a large number of helpful bacteria, which maintain your vaginas health, as well as some unhelpful bacteria.

Bacterial vaginosis occurs when the unhelpful bacteria overwhelm the helpful ones, causing a mild infection.

Symptoms of Bacterial Vaginosis:

  • a watery, grey or white discharge,
  • an unpleasant fishy smell,
  • a burning sensation during urination.

BV is incredibly common, being suffered by around one in three women at some stage during their lifetime.

Sadly, Bacterial Vaginosis tends to reoccur frequently, so that women with the condition may find it coming back again and again.

The reason being so is that most doctors prescribe antibiotic without a second thought or women buying over the counter medicine.

None of these will ever cure BV holistically.

In most cases a BV might clear up by itself (as the good bacteria usually win the fight over the unhealthy ones).

Still there is the possibility that other problems may be caused by it.

This is even more important for pregnant women since in rare instances it can lead to complications such as miscarriages and premature birth.

What Are The Most Common Reasons For Bacterial Vaginosis?

  • Scented soaps and bubble baths.
  • Antibiotics IUDs (intrauterine device), such as a contraceptive device made from plastic and copper that fits inside the uterus.
  • Washing your panties with strong detergent Vaginal deodorant and douches. unprotected sex (but BV can also happen in girls who never had sex before).


  1. Sexually Transmitted Diseases

Many STDs can lead to changes in discharge, sometimes causing an unpleasant smell.

The two main culprits for smelly vaginas, when it comes to STDs, are: Gonorrhoea and Chlamydia.

Most Common Symptoms of STDs (also called STI):

a change in discharge, usually making it thicker and puss-like (usually green or yellow)

If you think you may have an STI, I advise you to have your doctor examine it as soon as possible and abstain from unprotected sex until the infection has cleared.

  1. Wrong Hygiene Regime

If you suffer from a smelly vagina, but don’t have any change in discharge, it is possible that you have to change your vaginal hygiene regime.

As mentioned before, vaginal deodorant and douches can cause many more problems than they solve, by upsetting the balance of bacteria in your vagina.


Remember this rule:

Only put on your skin what you would eat.

Everything you put onto your skin or vagina gets absorbed immediately into the bloodstream.

It is as if your skin is having a dinner every time you put a lotion full of chemicals on it.

Would you eat this?


My Vaginal Hygiene Regime Recommendation:

  • Take off your panties from time to time & let your vagina breathe.
  • Oxygen kills bad bacteria magically use plain water to clean your vajayjay.
  • If at all use mild scented all-natural soap without alcohol & chemicals you don’t know.
  • Use Eve Intimate Secrets: Its 100% natural.
