Vaginal smell?

Recommended Posts

itisgoingtobeok

Having my first OB. On Valtrex 5th day. Was examining my sores (with plastic gloves on) and noticed a smell that wasn't there before. Anyone get this? Thanks!

I'm a guy so I can't give you a common response that you might expect. However I'd think having open wounds and your body trying to secrete stuff to prevent infections will have an odour. I'd imagine as your outbreak heals your vagina smell will be back to normal.

Late reply but yes I also experience a bad odour during OBs. It’s embarrassing. I’ve tried taking a bath daily even twice sometimes with epsom and vagisil soap less wash with odour control nothing has helped so far. Makes me want to throw a car air freshener in my pants lol

It is not supposed to smell, but we can have several things going on at once.

I don't. Magnesium chloride flakes is a great way to get under arm deodorant. Zinc sulfate will stop any odor. Bulk on Amazon for 16.00 5 lbs one t per 60 ml water

@itisgoingtobeok With my first outbreak I had a different smell down there. Also a lot of watery discharge. It eventually went away and has not been back.

You probably had a bacterial infection. When I got my first outbreak I had s bacterial infections also

      So ur saying the herbalife was the key?? Olive leaf extract and pro biotic are good? How many mgs of Lysine did you take a day?

      hello all, update... so the white ulcer inside started around january 4... and today it is still there... no burning while i pee, just a constant mild irritation feel, no other symptoms i went back to get retested 2/12 so 2.5 months after exposure... including HSV, HIV, gon, chlam, everything came back negative... the doctor thinks it's some form of chlamydia, he gave my doxy for 10 days is it too soon to tell if i have HSV? is it possible to have an ulcer inside the urethra and be fungal or bacterial?

      Probably not many.  I'm going to change my twitter symbol to the copper ribbon at least.

      okay! I guess I will just start at the basic dosage of vitamin C and go up every week little ? I take 1500 mg of super lysine like the bottle says and it still gives me gas and diarrhea. hoping it will pass if not I'll drop down to 2 a day! I really appreciate the advice! i know we would all.do ANYTNING to not have OB  at the moment idc about stigmas od boyfriends or dating or sex....I just care about FEELING healthy in my own skin. this is my one and only life

      That sounds like a good place to begin.  The lysine worked really well for me for about a year and a half.  Then things got steadily worse for me and nothing worked until vitamin C.  My immune system is not that great even tho i take care of myself, so u may have good luck if u have a decent one.  With the vitamin c, u must 1) take it at intervals throughout the day, not all at once 2) dont increase the amount u r taking too fast 3) it will give u gas at higher doses and even diarrhea if u go crazy with it. These r signs to lower your dose!  If u can just control your OB's with vitamin c and lysine or anything else, maybe a cure will finally become available.
