vaginal smell -- how to tell if it is bad?
Oct 27, 2000

what does normal vaginal smell smell like? i do have an odor, but am not sure if it is abnormal or not.

Response from Mr. Kull

Please refer to my response to Vaginal Odor.

It is difficult to describe what a "normal vaginal smell" is like. It is important to be aware of any marked changes in vaginal odor, especially if the odor becomes what some people describe as "fishy" and if it is accompanied by unusual discharge.

Vaginal odor is normal. Changes in vaginal odor is normal too. Most women are aware of changes in odor that signify some sort of infection.
