Hi I want to know what I can use for vaginal odour
Customer: replied 6 days ago.
Expert:  Elliot Ruff replied 6 days ago.

Okay thanks, ***** ***** is likely to be due to an overgrowth of bacteria, overgrowth of fungus. A swab would be useful to check for either as treating the cause would therefore prevent the odour.

If both of these are normal then you can get probiotics are thought to help with this.

Can I use suppositories? The smell is usually noticeable during sex and not a daily thing

It have noticed it for almost one year is this possible to be BV?
Expert:  Elliot Ruff replied 6 days ago.

No, you should get a swab first. BV is certainly a cause and can cause an odour. But a swab is needed before you treat this.

That is my pleasure, I hope you can get this done soon so that you can treat this. Take care.
