I recently started to have this 'funny' odor whenever I had sex with my husband. It was really bothersome to me because I didn't feel sexy anymore and I couldn't even enjoy oral sex like before. About a month ago, I tried something that has really worked. First, I threw away all my panties that were not 100% cotton, then stopped douching, then once a week would insert a garlic clove (peeled) in my vagina overnight and take it out in the morning, also sleep without panties, then take a hot bath in vinegar water, eat a lot of yogurt, and drink a lot of lemon water to detox my body. After a month of these rituals the odor has gone away almost completely. Another thing I did that only if you can you should do; I stopped taking my birth control pills for awhile because the hormones in them messes with your ph balance and contributes to vaginal problems, but I understand if you can't do that one. Hope this helps a little, even if you can't do all these things, a few of them still should help out a little.

I am a Nurse for a gynecologist and what you had was probably some kind of infection that needed an antibiotic or a yeast infection which is very common if you have sex and have a odor after. I suggest you see a doctor next time and not insert a garlic clove in your vagina over night. Not to smart.

I think this does work actually, the garlic method was used in the old days, but there are more advanced methods to use now days. If you don't want to go to the doctor, this is a good way to get rid of the bacteria. Not over night though, maybe for a couple of hours during the day.

I tried this ritual that you were talking about and it really works! The odor went away within a week and I feels do much better. Also I have started taking chlorophyll supplements 100mg to freshen up a bit, try it, it works.

Ok, at first I thought this was really weird, but I went ahead a tried it just to see. I did not like the fact that I tasted garlic all night but I did feel better after a few days. The odor did subside and I will no longer douche since I know that is it not good for you. If you don't think this is worth it I wouldn't try it, but I will have to say that it does work and worth the extra time.

Garlic is great for this! Garlic will also clear up yeast infections (of course, check with your Dr. if you're not sure it's a yeast infection). You can insert directly, or wrap it in gauze and tie a string for retrieval (like a tampon). You can leave it in all night for several days if needed to clear it up. It's a good way to avoid putting those chemicals from yeast treatments into your body, and works much better. I asked my alternative health practitioner about this, and he said Garlic is a perfectly safe and natural way to treat yeast or in this case bacteria. OBGYN nurse probably just wants you to go to the Dr and spend more $$, when it can be treated easily and safely at home.

And to the nurse...I have been fighting this same problem for over a year. My doctor has given me everything from Flagyl to Clindamycin & it comes back EVERYTIME! I'd shove jalepeno peppers in there if it would work!

nun ya biz

can my birthcontrol be the cause of my vaginal odor or the fact i have been having sex unprotected with one partner for 5year ugh!i need advice somebody im only 28 yrs old please im about to break off my relationship jus so i can see if it will go back 2 norm ive got 3 kids and love him dearly so i feel so uncomfortable and nasty its never smelled like this intil about a year ago ive tried everything

I wouldn't break off a long relationship because of this. Believe it or not, a lot of women go through this. I've been with my husband for 10 years and have two kids and just recently this has happened to me. If this remedy doesn't work, go to your gyne and see if there isn't something more serious going on with your body. You say you have tree children; maybe stress plays a huge role because that also will screw up your ph balance and cause an odor.

I have had vaginal odor and discharge for years and all Drs prescribe are creams and pills that make it go away for a few days but it always comes right back.One Dr even gave me the natural way to deal with vaginal odor which was apple cider vinager, and the active culture in yogurt. I even ordered Femanol but still nothing works! It only got worse after I got the Mirena (IUD). I am out of options! I have to constantly take showers because I always feel dirty and I have to have a pantyliner on at all times...UGH
