My Period Smells Bad
Hi my period smells so bad rather it stinks to an extent where by when i wear skirts people can't stay beside me. Also when am not on my period .?
Odor: There are a few different possibilities that you could have such an odor. There are certain infections that cause odor. Old blood tends to get some odor. Retained objects, especially a tampon, could give a bad odor. Whatever the reason, there is not much you can do for it on your own. See your doctor for an exam and testing to find the cause. ...Read more

Repopulate: Antibiotics kills good bacteria you need living in your vagina as well as killing the ones you don't want there. Repopulate the good bacteria with products containing acidophillus, lactobacillus and the like (taken as pills) eat yogurt with active cultures. Do not douche as this will make it worse.

Blood tends to make the odor worse with this infection. Treatment is antibiotics so you will need to see your obgyn for testing and confirmation. ...Read more

My period blood always smells really bad i get BV alot so i was wondering if it may be something to do with that?
Very possibly: If your vagina & genital tract seem to be colonized with bacteria such that bacterial vaginosis is frequently diagnosed, I believe the bacteria with menstrual blood could have an very unpleasant odor. Work on preventing BV: monogamy (reducing partners helps), condoms, good hygiene, wiping from front to back, not douching, cotton underwear, loose fitting (in crotch) pants can all help. Good wishes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
