Every day for a year my underwear always smells like ammonia . I usually just wear liners but I m not sure what its from. I m on depo provera but am on the pill to stop irregular bleeding and this is my first month I have skipped my depo shot as I find the pill is working fine by itself.

We understand your concerns

I went through your problem description. I sincerely suggest that depo provera studies on human beings never shown any significant relation to ammonia. No relationship at all. Then what is the reason for this ammonia smell?

Where are you working? Do you have any relationship with ammonia? means your work place etc?

I suggest that you are imagining the smell. Don't get outraged. because this could be true. People do have hallucinations (imagination) about so many vivid things.

If you cannot explain any relationships, just ignore the ammonia smell because actually it is not there.

Hope this clears your doubts. Available for further clarifications.
good luck.
