Brief Answer: No, may lead to infection Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for the query. Inserting garlic etc will not decrease the vaginal odor and can lead to infection also. So don't do that. If vaginal odor is associated with symptoms like discharge, itching etc, there is possibility of infection. In that case better to consult gynecologist once and get examined. If only odor is the problem below measures may help: - Taking bath twice a day and changing the inner wear twice a day. - Using cotton inner wear as per as possible. - Cleaning the genital area with few milliters of mild disinfectant added XXXXXXX warm water. -Adding XXXXXXX water etc in the water before bath. -Keeping the genital area dry as per as possible etc. Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer followup queries. If you are satisfied with the answer, please give your review at the end of the discussion. Take care.
