There are some taboo health topics that women, even in this day and age of openness and sharing, do not discuss with their closest friends.
One of such topic seems to be vaginal moisture and odors.
Just so you know, the Wet “Down There” Treatment Plan will tell you the cause of your vaginal wetness and provide you a personalized treatment plan for getting rid of it.
Thus, we female physicians seem to shyly get asked this question and find an opportunity to educate and reassure our female patients on this matter.
How much moisture does a normal vagina produce and what does a normal vagina smell like?
We are hosting a FREE on-demand online workshop on the topic Why Am I Always Wet “Down There” where you will uncover;
⇒Why you feel wet “down there” in the absence of arousal
⇒What the color and odor of your discharge points to
⇒What you need to do to get it to STOP
You are invited to join us.
While you should get a full exam, including a pelvic exam with vaginal cultures to make sure you are not having symptoms of an infection; the truth of the matter is that most women, at different stages and decades of their lives will go through changes in vaginal moisture and odors (read the “Scoop on Vaginal Wetness & Moisture” for more detailed information).
Many healthy, reproductive aged women can expect to be damp during their regular days and this moisture can be even more potent and copious during ovulation.
Many women feel that they can “smell” themselves, often describing smells of metal or fishiness, “like pennies and oysters? but in the absence of rash, irritation, skin lesions or thick infectious and inflammatory discharge, this wetness and odor can be healthy and normal. We refer to it as a “normal physiologic discharge”.
There can be anxiety about others sitting or standing too close by and being able to sense or smell this odor. Banish those fears. Those people would need to literarily have their noses in your crouch to pick up the scent.
So if after a thorough normal exam and normal test results, you can be rest assured (though you may need repeat testing depending on your risk factors) that you are simply most likely a healthy and virile wet woman.
While most cases of vaginal wetness are normal and cyclical depending on the menstrual cycle, there are abnormal reasons for vaginal wetness or discharges.
The color and the odor of the discharge could clue you in and guide you on when to seek out treatment.
