Why You Should Be Concerned If Your Vagina Smells Fishy

If your vagina smells like fish, you might be asking yourself, “Does my vagina smell normal?”fishy smelling vagina

Chances are a fishy smelling vagina is not normal and the smell alerts you to check things out to make sure your area “down there” is in good health and there’s nothing wrong.

First, it’s important to know that your vagina does have a natural smell or scent and that scent is unique to you.

Why Does My Vagina Have A Scent?

The reason why your vagina has a scent is because of its pH.

pH tells you how acidic or alkaline something is so if the pH of your vagina is from 3.5 to 4.5 then that’s usually normal because it’s moderately acidic which provides a protective environment from infection.

You’re not going to know what the pH of your vagina is unless you have it tested but the smell is an indication that something is either fine or not right.

Common Causes Of Fishy Vaginal Odor

While there could be several reasons why your vagina smells abnormal or fishy, here are five common things that can either change the pH or the smell of your vagina:

>> Bacteria – Bacterial vaginosis (BV) is a common condition that causes the “fishy” smell. You might also experience a white, yellow, or gray discharge which indicates there are too many “bad” bacteria that cause a pH imbalance. Itching, burning, or irritation when you urinate can also be symptoms although many women who have BV don’t experience any symptoms at all.

>> Parasite – Trichomoniasis (trich) is a sexually transmitted disease (STD) caused by a parasite. As in BV, you may not experience any symptoms at all.

Both BV and Trichomoniasis can increase the risk of more serious diseases including herpes, HIV, and HPV so it’s important to see your doctor if you suspect something could be affecting the smell of your vagina.

>> Blood from your period or menstrual cycle can upset the pH balance of your vagina, leading to an infection and unpleasant odor.

>> Semen in your vagina from unprotected sexual intercourse can also upset the pH balance of your vagina resulting in a smell that’s not your normal scent.

>> A tampon that has mistakenly been left inside can also lead to infection and abnormal odor. Note that leaving a tampon in too long can lead to toxic shock syndrome which is a *very serious* medical condition, so be sure to follow the manufacturer’s recommendations when using tampons.

A fishy smell from your vagina is cause to have the matter investigated by your doctor or other medical professional.


Other Causes Of pH Imbalance In The Vagina

>> Douching – Douching is not recommended because it changes to pH level in the vagina and can create an environment for the growth of harmful bacteria.

>> Antibiotics – Antibiotics don’t discriminate between good and bad bacteria and kill both the good and the bad bacteria. As a result, the pH balance – and your scent – can be adversely affected.

How To Avoid Fishy Vaginal Odor

There are several ways to avoid a smelly vagina but keep in mind that every woman’s body is different and the following suggestions may or may not apply to your specific situation:

1. Don’t douche: As explained above, douching changes the pH of your vagina

2. Avoid things that could irritate the vagina including soaps, bathing in a bathtub, and hot tubs.

3. Let your vagina breathe: Wear cotton panties (or ones that have a cotton gusset) and go naked when sleeping.

4. Use a condom when having sex. Although men complain about wearing a condom and the experience is not the same as going “raw,” your health is very important. A condom is a minor inconvenience and helps protect you from sexually transmitted diseases and pregnancy, although they are not guaranteed to be 100% effective.

5. Arrange appointments with your doctor at regular intervals to have your vagina examined to ensure it’s healthy and to check for sexually transmitted diseases if you are sexually active.

6. Take probiotics. Probiotics are a special supplement that can help populate your vagina with friendly bacteria and help maintain a pH level that is needed for it to stay healthy.

Smell or Sexual Scent Can Be An Important Part of Sex

A smelly vagina can become an issue not just because of your health but also when you’re having sex with your boyfriend, husband, or lover because the way you smell – your sexual scent – is part of what can make you attractive and can make your man desire you.

An unpleasant vaginal odor can be a turn-off and can adversely affect oral sex and being pleasured orally by your man.

Many men are turned on by a woman’s scent so it’s important to get to the bottom of the issue if your vagina has a fishy smell.

Apart from health reasons, you want to be attractive to your man and feel wanted and desired by him.
