In our culture, few things are as taboo as our genitals. Because of this, though you may notice an odor coming from your genitals, you may hesitate to do something about it because you are afraid to ask. However, when it comes to your honey part secretions, scent is an important indicator of health.
Here are four of the more common scents that you may find, and what they can mean:
The smell of fish is usually a sign of an impending bacterial infection. Though your lady part secretions have a pH balance that can protect it from many invaders, there are times that this can become overwhelmed. If you smell this, especially for more than a day, it is usually a sign that you should see a doctor. This should not be confused with the natural musky scent that many people have as a healthy part of their honey pot secretion. The trick is to know your body and recognize when a scent is off.
The coppery or tinny scent of metal, especially around your period or after making love is usually a sign that your honey pot secretions are being mixed with trace amounts of blood. If you feel that this happens too often, or you feel weak, you may be losing blood more often. One way to check this is to have a blood test to determine your iron level. A check with a doctor is usually an opportunity to make sure that it is a sign that you need vitamins, and that this isn’t a bigger issue.
