"Why do I experience intimate odor?"
The main reasons why you experience intimate odor are due to...
“A normal discharge is typically white and grainy with a slighty sour smell.
If the discharge however starts to smell differently, it could be a vaginal infection such as Bacterial Vaginosis, STDs or a pH disruption in the vagina. If you experince a change in the character of your discharge, I advise you to meet your OB/GYN.”
Intimate Sweat Glands
Armpits are not the only parts that sweat - so does that vulva
What many people might not know is that the vulva also sweats. A sweat identical to the sweat under our armpits. This is completely normal and the sweat glands activate when you hit puberty, no matter your gender.
This is one of the reasons we have developed an intimate deospray - both for women and men. An intimate deodorant developed by doctors to make sure the substance is effective enough, but still delicate to our most sensitive skin of the entire body.
The Doctor Explains
Apocrine Sweat Glands
“Apocrine sweat glands exist in only two parts of the body - the armpits and the vulva. They empty in hair follicles. These sweat glands are not thermo-regulatory like other sweat glands - instead they are characterized by causing odor.”
This is a vulva - not to mix up with a vagina. The Vulva is not self-cleansing and urine easily clings to the area which can cause bacterial growth. The Vulva also has sweat glands that contribute to bacterial growth causing odor. To wash this intimate area - You need a gentle intimate wash with a pH-level of 5.
