It is normal that all the women have their own vaginal scent. As long as it’s their natural scent they recognize, it shouldn’t be a problem. But if you notice the smell is somewhat different than usual, this should be the issue. Perineal odor is caused by oils in sweat gland secretions, vaginal secretions and also if a woman has the urine leakage. All sweat gland secretions are the same components as urine so it’s not uncommon that the vulvar area sometimes smells like urine, which reminds of ammonia. Also, many of the food we eat have odorous oils that end up being secreted in sweat so the more fat we ingest- the more oil will be secreted! If you want to control the vaginal odor, you surely shouldn’t use any deodorant or gels or anything that could disturb the acidic balance of your vagina. You just keep it clean with mild soaps and of course, you should have a word with your gynecologist and ask him what exactly should you do to stop this sweating!
