Why Do I Smell Before My Period
The menstrual cycle begins with the shedding of the uterine lining, resulting in bleeding from the vagina. A few weeks later, one ovary releases an egg and the uterine lining thickens in preparation for a potential pregnancy. Pregnancy can occur at this stage if sperm fertilizes the egg.

Hi I have a weird smell before my period it's not fishy nor too bad. Do women usually change odors before period?
Vaginal odor: Usual pre-menstrual odors are secondary to infection. Bacterial infections can produce unpleasant odors. Yeast infections are not dangerous, and are common just prior to one's period. If the odor is not unpleasant, it is probably a yeast overgrowth and is not serious. If this is irritating or produces itching, see your healthcare provider.

Uncertain: Infection? Retained tampon? Not changing pads often enough? Most women have a mild menstrual odor. A strong, foul smelling odor usually isn't normal. If you have a change in color, texture, odor or amount of vaginal discharge ; problems such as pain, itching burning with urination or sex or redness/swelling then it is best to see your gynecologist for evaluation ; accurate assessment.
IT MAY BE NORMAL BUT: There is normally smell of blood when menstruating and that is normal and for some it may be very unpleasant smell. But if the odor has changed lately from what it was before and it is bothering you than see your gynecologist to rule out a bacterial infection.
Oral Hygiene: First, make sure you are brushing and flossing 3-4 times per day. You can do more if needed. But I would always brush after any meal. That will keep your breath smelling good for a longer period of time.
What does it mean when you start to have your period but it smells bad like death with black goo?
What a description!: One of the first things I look for when a woman complains of really bad vaginal odor is a lost tampon! Sometimes a tampon is placed in the vagina, the string gets tucked inside, and a woman can forget it's there. After a while, the odor can be quite strong. But it's also possible that there's an infection present, and it would be very wise to have this checked by your doctor. Good luck. Lgromkomd.

Hi, I've had a period for nearly 6 weeks now, it is not heavy but can be painful a bit smelly (doesn't smell like a period should) help?
See an OB/GYN: You need to be examined for several reasons. To find out if you have lost enough blood to make you anemic, as well as to determine what is going on to make you continue to bleed. Please go and see your gynecologist fairly soon. Good luck.

My last period was the 4th of feb. Today I have about two tablespoons worth of cm. Never had this much. Could this indicate something serious no smell?
