Vaginal odor 13 years. Odor comparable to unwashed for weeks. Very strong. I was checked for fistula and it was negative as well. Tested repeatably. Negative on all infections/STD's every time. Normal regular periods..medium flow. Used HepPhresh and many other odor helpers online. Tried douche, antibiotics, yeast medications. Tried natural remedies. Tried different diets. Drank up to 4 quarts of water daily. Odor is NOT coming from within the vaginal opening. It appears to be coming from the vaginal glands in the vulva area. There is no odor inside of the vaginal hole. Is this a hormonal problem? I am 38. I do not have sex. I have never even had sperm inside me in my entire lifetime. Do we have glands within the vulva area that secretes or releases foul odor comparable to "unwashed behind?" What is the cause and solution to this problem? I had a female friend that went through the same problem for 7 years and suddenly it just went away. DR's ignored her and never found the cause of the problem. At least hers went away but mine continues after 13 long years. Desperate for answers. I have tried Google to find similar problems but none show up. All suggest infections which I do not have.View Thread
Chronic Foul Vaginal Odor for 13 yrs. Seen MANY doctors. No infections or diseases. Tried BV and yeast treatments. Tried all OTC deodorants/powders. Tried drinking much water, changing diet. Washing with water, with soap. Used natural cotton panties. Smell is equal to "days of unwashed butt". Friends, family, strangers have commented on my vaginal odor. I have smelled myself too. I am very clean person who showers daily. I can clear a room with this odor. I have to work jobs where I'm not exposing other people to my odor. I had to give up my social life completely. Last time I seen a DR for this..TODAY. No infections. No diseases. No constipation.I don't have sex. Its been 13 years since I've had sex. I have regular monthly periods. Light to medium flows. Approx 25 out of 30 days I have the foul vaginal odor Vaginal odor develops within 10 minutes after cleaning. 20 minutes and people around me can smell it and some don't mind telling me about it. I'm sick of this. I want my life back. Someone please tell me of any medications, remedies I could use. I've heard of one I can get thru internet order but forgot name of it. Someone please help me. I have gotten nowhere with doctors. There is no amount of therapy that will help me "get used" to the negative comments I get for my vaginal odor.View Thread
