According to VeryWellHealth, the female organ by nature is liable to different kinds of smells, particularly during intercourse stimulation and menstruation. Other lifestyle factors such as stress, pregnancy, and intercourse can also change how the female organ smells.
But certain odors need attention, which could be an indication of female organ infections, sexually transmitted infections (STIs), and intercourse-associated infections. They are:
Trichomoniasis is the most common curable STI. It is spread through unprotected intercourse with a partner who has the infection. One of the common symptoms is fishy female organ odor followed by white, yellow, or greenish discharge.
2. Yeast Infection
Yeast infections are also brought on by an overgrowth of bacteria in the female organ. Along with intense itchiness, yeast infections can lead to changes in female organ discharge and odor.
You may have discovered your menstrual cycle causes different female organ odors, including metallic, rotten, or sweaty. Some of these are usual period blood smells and nothing to ponder about. Others, such as a strong fishy smell, can signal infection from a forgotten tampon. See your doctor immediately if you notice this is the case.
