No -- not true: Raw milk is known for potentially harmful things like bacterial contamination with listeria, salmonella, and e. Coli.

Vaginal odor from frequent sex how do you get rid of it to enjoy your partner sex as much as twice a day
Do not assume the vaginal odor is from frequent sex. Vaginal odor may be a sign of infection (yeast, bacteria, std), or even a foreign body lodged in the vagina (i.e. Tampons) can be the caused. I know that may sound shocking, but you would be surprised how many foreign bodies I have found in the vagina after a patient complained of vaginal odor.
You should schedule a visit with your primary care doctor or gynecologist for an evaluation and testing in order to determine the cause of your problem and provide treatment. Hopefully this will alleviate the odor.
If nothing is found and the odor persists, try taking a bath instead of a shower after intercourse, you can add a liittle vinegar to the water which may help.
Good luck. ...Read more

Having a vaginal odor for sometime used products to get rid of it but it came back after sex now I'm bleeding a little after sex odor still continues?
Get checked: It sounds like you need to be checked. The OTC meds for odor do not treat the underlying problem. It sounds like you may have bacterial vaginosis, which is not so much an infection as it is an imbalance in the normal bacterial flora of the vagina. You may need a round of antibiotics to supress the abnormal bacteria, and doing probiotics, like eating yogurt, can replenish the normal bacteria. ...Read more
