We think a lot about sex and those awkward things about it. One of those things is our smell (and taste) down there. The smell of fish would be very embarrassing – but how to get rid of vaginal odor and keep your vagina smelling like a field of lavender? This is how.
Did you ever notice how the things we think about most are the things we talk about least? The reason is that not a lot of our thoughts are not really lunch-appropriate. Still, I can bet my life that every woman has wondered about how she smells down there in general and compared to other women.
This is especially true if you yourself smell something funky coming from down there. Depending on how strongly you can smell it, it may even seem to you like other people can too, even though this is rarely the case. However, any type of smell that is just off is a sure clue for you to take notice and check it out. Whatever the reason may be for your intimate troubles here’s advice on how to get rid of vaginal odor as well as how to smell and taste great down there:
Visit Your Gynecologist Regularly
It is not something you love hearing – all of us wish an article could replace doctors, but sadly it’s not the case. If you feel an ugly smell down there, you might have an infection or a VD. No one wants that – but you have to make sure you don’t have it. Most of them are easily treatable, so you don’t have to get very stressed. Even if your smell is OK, a visit to the gynecologist is in order – at least every six months.
Take Care of Your Hygiene
By hygiene, we don’t mean “take regular showers” – you already know that. But intimate hygiene is a bit different. Your vagina is the most sensitive part of your body and you shouldn’t wash it with regular soap. Buy a special intimate wash with neutral Ph value – 5.5.
Wash with intimate wash at least once a day. When you have your period, make sure you change your pads or tampons regularly.
If you have a sensitive vagina, avoid underwear that isn’t made of cotton. Cotton is the fabric that irritates the skin least. Use your lacy, sexy underwear on special occasions only. Also, cotton doesn’t mean “not hot”. You can find designs that will set the mood as high as any silk thong.
If you really, really want to make sure, you can rinse your vagina with mint tea once a week. It’s a classic “grandma’s advice” and has worked for generations – it will work for you too. It’s cheap and easy to do – and will really help your vagina smell and taste as good as possible.
You Taste Like the Food You Eat
You might not know it, though, but having a balanced diet and making certain food selections can help improve vaginal health. A great idea is pineapple juice – but any other fruits are good for your smell and taste down there. Drink lots of water and stay away from alcohol – asparagus, fish, crabs and spicy food will make you smell funny. Medications can also cause a bad “scent”.
A mixture of milk almonds, milk and honey can make you taste sweet. Eating foods like yogurt can assist in boosting levels of beneficial microorganisms. Here are more best home remedies to get rid of vaginal odor.
There are various strategies to maintain the health of your vagina, including safe sexual behavior, yearly well-woman exams, consistent exercise, and prompt treatment of any infections.
Let the Games Begin
Now that you did everything possible to get rid of vaginal odor and taste good, you can spice it up. If you’re playing, play well. Use whipped cream or chocolate in the bedroom – be his favorite cake and let him go down on you. Don’t be ashamed – after all of the above, there is no way you don’t taste like a candy.
Play, have fun – and return the favour!
