How to Get Rid of Vaginal Odor

Vaginal odor is a very common problem that most women have to deal with at least once or twice in their life.

Vaginal odor can be due to a number of reasons, such as bacterial growth, yeast infections, poor hygiene, hormonal changes, and sexually transmitted diseases.

If the problem is due to infection, there may be symptoms like redness, itching, burning and irritation in the vaginal area. A fishy odor down there, in particular, is caused by bacterial vaginosis.

No matter what the reason, vaginal odor can be very embarrassing. There are many natural remedies to help treat vaginal odor.

home remedies for vaginal odor

Here are the top 10 ways to get rid of vaginal odor.

1. Apple Cider Vinegar

Due to its antibacterial and antiseptic properties, apple cider vinegar can be used to fight vaginal odor. In fact, taking a bath with apple cider vinegar is one of the simplest ways to get rid of the bad odor. This will help fight off the toxins and bacteria that cause vaginal odor. It will also help restore the acidic quality of the vaginal flora.

  • Mix two cups of apple cider vinegar in warm bath water. Soak in it for about 20 minutes. Follow this remedy several times a week to get quick results.
  • You can also drink a glass of water mixed with one or two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar daily.

2. Baking Soda

Baking soda is another ingredient that can be used to balance the pH level in your body. When the pH level is in balance, the problem of vaginal odor will dissipate.

  1. Add one-half cup of baking soda to your bathwater.
  2. Soak your lower body in it for about 20 minutes.
  3. Dry yourself thoroughly with a clean towel. This remedy will help fight a yeast infection and can help get rid of odor quickly.

3. Yogurt

Another good ingredient that can be used to treat vaginal odor is yogurt. Yogurt is rich in lactobacillus bacteria, which help fight candida infection (one of the most common causes of vaginal odor) and restore the normal vaginal pH level. Once the pH level is balanced, the vaginal odor will be gone.

  • Eat two cups of unsweetened, plain yogurt daily. You can also take probiotic supplements.
  • Another option is to soak a tampon in plain yogurt and insert it into your body. Leave it in for a few hours, and rinse the area thoroughly after removing the tampon.

4. White Vinegar

White vinegar has the power to neutralize odors by breaking down odor proteins. A white vinegar rinse will help eliminate vaginal odor. It will also help restore pH levels in the vagina.

  1. Mix one-half cup each of white vinegar and salt in lukewarm bath water.
  2. Soak in it for a few minutes.
  3. Follow this remedy several times a week.

5. Tea Tree Oil

Tea tree oil contains strong antifungal as well as antiseptic properties, and thus it can be used to get rid of unpleasant vaginal odor. It will help get rid of bacteria that are contributing to the problem.

  • Add three drops of tea tree oil to a cup of water. Use this solution to rinse the affected area daily or several times a week.
  • Alternatively, dip a tampon in olive oil and then put a little tea tree oil on it. Insert the tampon and leave it in for at least one hour. Do this several times a week.

6. Garlic

Garlic is a natural antibiotic that can be great for dealing with vaginal infections as well as vaginal odor. The antifungal properties present in garlic will help fight a yeast infection and help your body get rid of bad bacteria.

  • Eat garlic in raw or cooked form on a daily basis. You can eat one or two raw garlic cloves on an empty stomach with a glass of warm water. You can also add garlic cloves or its paste to your dishes and salads.
  • Another option is to put a piece of garlic in the vagina for an hour or two. Do this daily or a few times a week until you get rid of the problem.

 

 

 

  1. I have a smelling discharge and I’ve been trying white vinneger and salt but nothing is happening pls I need help

    • go to your doctor. you either have a yeast infection, bacterial vaginosis, or an std/sti. the best way to get rid of smelly discharge problems is to take a visit to your doctor’s office and take the antibiotics or advice they give you and follow it until they told you to. DON’T EVER STOP ANTIBIOTICS JUST BECAUSE YOU FEEL BETTER, IT WILL COME BACK AND IT WILL COME BACK QUICKLY.
      hope this helped!

    • Never douche. Never. It is linked to an increased risk of cervical cancer, bacterial vaginosis and uterine infections.

      Most of the advice here is either bogus or dangerous. If it is a “well known fact” then there will be supporting research: state it.

      Just because it sounds like a “natural” remedy doesn’t mean it works. Remember that we investigated all the natural folk remedies and the ones that worked became medicine.

      If you have bodily concerns never take the advice of strangers on the internet or witherings of people about natural remedies: see your doctor.

  4. @ boitu you should go get summer’s eve feminime wash and summer’s eve sweet romance douche drink plenty of water and use plain yogurt on a tampon it really does work. White vinegar is good to use after your menstrual to make the vagina tight but for odor I recommend the summer’s eve wash and along with plain yogurt.

    Reply
    • No no no! So sorry to step on toes, but douching is very bad for your vagina. You have bacteria inside your vagina that are not only beneficial, but they are absolutely necessary! When you douche you clean out that bacteria, and then they return with an angry vengeance. You will have an over abundance of bacteria and will end up with an infection and an even worse odor. Your vagina is very good at cleaning itself. You should only clean the outer parts of your vagina. Having an OBGYN in the family certainly helps. Use a mild soap on your outer lips and always wipe front to back!

      • The odor is natural and has purpose. God made all things for a purpose. And the purpose for using it is not for everyone or everybody’s use. The use of the vagina is is only for a married couple and of delivery for a baby. Secondly, Its true that the vagina has a good cleansing itself. Me is only using a plain water in washing my vagina…I only wash my vagina twice a day. Once in the morning during my bath time and once in the evening before bed time. It works!

      • I wouldn’t recommend douching after taking the yogurt tampon out because it could upset the natural pH again. My suggestion would be to take a quick, warm bath with a cup of apple cider vinegar (or baking soda) after the tampon is removed. If access to a bath is not available, wipe with a clean washcloth dampened with warm water. If the yogurt is left inside for a while, it will not cause any harm. Hope this was helpful to you, dear.

  7. From someone that battled vaginal odor for YEARS, none of these home remedies work. The only thing that works is Metronidazole. You have to get it from your gynecologist, or go to a planned parenthood or free clinic if you don’t have insurance. It comes in gel or pill form (I recommend the vaginal gel form called Metrogel because the pill makes you nauseous). The smell disappears on the very 1st day you use it but you have to continue use for 5-7 days to make sure all the bacteria is gone. Also avoid allowing your boyfriend to ejaculate in you as that usually triggers the odor to come back. I’ve been odor free now for about 4 years

    Reply
    • Sometimes antibiotics are needed, but this bacteria is tenacious and usually comes back. I suggest even if using antibiotics to use natural remedies afterwards to keep it clean. This will help keep the bad bacteria away and keep the pH at a healthy level.
      I eat yogurt after taking antibiotics. One thing that helped me, changed my life, was rinsing with water after every time I went to the bathroom. Like a bidet; I used a plant watering pot. This has done the most to keep me healthy there. If I start to get a little ‘off’, I rinse with chamomile tea. Chamomile tea rinse is another great help for smell or bacterial problems.

      • The TV show “The Doctors” had a segment on “How to keep the Vagina odor under control”…believe it or not they said to rinse using water after every bathroom visit. They even gave all the women a rinse spray bottle to use. I wish I had written down the name of the bottle because I would like to purchase one for myself.

      • You are right, this is a sensitive issue. Example: When you take a bath and you see a ring in the tub when the water is gone…does that mean you were dirty? Or does it mean the body is getting rid of old dead cells? Ans: the ring mean you were getting rid of old dead cells. When the vagina smell…is it normal or abnormal? The answer can be “YES” and it can be “NO”. Everyone is different and the body react to situations in a different way. The vagina is no different…it has to be dealt with according to the situation at hand.

    • You made me laugh so hard! But you are sooo right!!! Eat fresh and definately reduce the meat from your diet. I myself do do a douche but with just a spoon of white vinegar in water and it feels so fresh. I believe your body can take care of itself, but if its stinks a natural remedie wont hurt at all. I have been doing it for years. Almost every day and its like brushing my teeth

    • My great-grand mother was a midwife, she did home deliveries in the 1960’s. I remember my mother telling us that she used a Astringent called Alum. She would use it with the mothers to control the bleeding and spotting after the delivery. The real purpose was to tighten the vagina. Put a very tiny piece wrapped in cotton and insert it in the vagina….it will really tighten that area…i used it for curiosity and it worked.

  25. I have quit smoking for about 14 days, which is a nice change. Rather hard at first. Always that first week. I usually only last a week, but I think this is it for good. :)
    That helped with the odor, but since I quit smoking!
    BUT! – I have been eating non stop subconsciously for the replacement.
    Only realised in the last couple of days! So I’ve cut down.
    Hard to eat healthy as I am a young student on a budget, but I am trying my best.
    I will be trying the white vinegar trick when I get some.
    Attempting bath remedies tomorrow afternoon/night when I get home (in bed with the laptop)
    Finishing off the last of the oranges/fruits for breakfast tomorrow.
    I will try others if this continues! DEFINITELY diet that plays a part!!!
    Due to me being a young and dumb teen that eats junk and more junk :p
    Good luck lovely ladies x

  30. Hi ladies!
    As a general rule, I recommend metronidazole for bad-smelling vaginal discharge that fits the description of BV. Metronidazole can cause yeast infection, so what I tell my patients is to first do a course of metro, and THEN a course of Diflucan – 150 mg tablet on day 1 and on day 3 AFTER the cure with metronidzole is over. Usually works like a charm for my patients :)

    That being said. A gynaecological exam is something you should have done, they can take samples to figure out which bacteria you have, if any, if you have a yeast infection, if you have an STD etc., and you can get your pap-smear done.

    Using lactobacilli are great when on antibiotics, and if you are very bothered by odor, you can take a course of lactobacilli vaginal capsules after each period just to “clean up” in there.

    I do not recommend douching as it will harm the natural bacterial/fungal flora in your vajayjay ;)

    I have had these problems my self, but they are far gone now. If i feel there might be a yeast infection sneaking around the corner, I just take 150 mg diflucan and I’m good to go.

    Good luck :)

  54. Hi Ladies,
    I never had an odor problem anywhere, but since going through menopause I have this sweet odor coming from the vagina area, I don’t like it. I don’t use deodorant under my arms, because it makes me itch so I started using a natural deodorant, salt crystals I bought at a health food store many years ago. It works great for under the arms! I still sweat, but the salt prevents bacteria from forming, so there isn’t any odor under my arms. I didn’t use the salt crystal under my arms one day and I had the same sweet odor from my under arms and realized that the odor from the Vagina is the same that was under my arms. I have tried rolling the salt crystal on the skin around the vagina and the odor stopped. After menopause I started sweating in more places. I feel the sweating must be due to the hormonal changes. The salt crystal is a little irritating so I hesitate using it in the vagina area. I will try the other natural remedies to see if they work. I feel better figuring out why I smell. It’s just another symptom of menopause. It’s not something that is coming from inside the vagina, in my case it’s from the sweat on the outside. I hope this helps. It really helped me when I figured it out.

I will try the vinegar and will post feedback. Cheers

  60. Hi everyone,
    I am glad to know that I am not the only one who is experiencing the same thing with the vaginal odor. I tried the White Vinegar with my bath along with the salt. I don’t smell an odor anymore, and I am feeling refreshed and great.

  62. I recently experience horrible vag odor for a few months, worse smell I’ve ever experienced! I started to douche (very bad idea) so I soaked a tampon in Apple cider vinegar & water inserted it & the smell left completely it’s been 1 day now so hopefully it doesn’t come back, I made an appointment w/ my gyn to be safe.

    Reply
    • Thats awesome that the tampon soaked with vinegar worked….ive been trying to find if anyone has done this/ whether it works, as it seems more simple to do than having a bath or soaking in it. How long did you keep the tampon in tho?

  73. I would think if someone gets a discharge with a very bad odour they most likely have an infection. My practice nurse when I went for a smear test kept telling me I had thrush as she could see the discharge at the neck of the womb. She did a test and sent it off to be tested and it came back negative I did not have thrush infection. The discharge I used to get was quite normal for most women. When I went through the menopause the discharge got much better not so often and much less heavy. Now I am post-menopausal I have noticed it has changed again. Sometimes it was very uncomfortable as it made my panties wet. I now use a feminine wash and sometimes wipes the ones without to much perfume. And a pantie liner although you have to be careful of those as they can make you sore I have found. It must be horrible to suffer bad odour to I never get that myself thankfully. You do have to be careful not to make things worse by upsetting the delicate balance in that area.

  76. I also experiencing the same way. What I have observed was after a sexual intercourse or having sex the fluids that comes out form each other brought a bad smell among ladies. Or if there are hormone imbalance the secretion turns into bad smell. I don’t know if these observations are right but whatever reasons why we women are battling in these kind of problems even hygienic was observed, hope to be solved very soon.

  78. Having a bad vaginal discharge for almost 2 years now, I REAALLY want to get rid of it. It’s been sooo embarrassing, especially during class because it will start smelling and people will say stuff. Humiliating. I’ve been to the doctors multiple times but I always get back the same results…no infection, no STI/STD. They really don’t know why my body is producing this terrible (fishy) smelling discharge. They didn’t want to prescribe any medications to me because they didn’t want to mess with my pH levels incase the antibiotics might have started a real infection down there. I tried the baking soda remedy yesterday by drinking a cup of warm water and a teaspoon of it and I threw up about 4 times later that night. I’ve also sat in half a cup of baking soda for 20 mins for the past two days and that has worked a little but I’m afraid it won’t be permanent :( i eat really healthy, drink plenty of water, and exercise a good amount but there seems to be no solution to this. It’s stressful, making my life awful and I need help but my mom and I don’t know what to do anymore. Help anyone?? I’m 15 and have had my period for 3 and a half years now if that helps anything. And my discharge is daily.

  79. I Just got married a couple months ago and I just got paragard IUD. So we thought yay no more condoms right? I really prefer not to use them especially because my husband and I are both clean and have no std or anything. So after just the first time of having sex without one I got this horrible smell thing I never use to have a problem with ever!! Its depressing. Especially because the second time it smelled worse! Does anyone on here know if I will ever be able to have unprotected sex again? Because I’m tired of struggling. Either I’m struggling with a both control or a smell or something and I just wanna start enjoying intimacy rather then getting angry about the problems every time. I tried some home remedies and they work but it always comes back. Is there anything preventative?? :(

    • Sometimes your mans sperm and your lubricant dont mix well, if its only after sex thats most likely the reason.

      I keep an odor unless I keep shaved. Ive been to the Dr and no issues just need to shave.

  92. how many of you fat cows need to diet and drink more Wattterrrrrrrrrrr… stop putting shit fast food, fatty food in your bodies and magically you will start to smell better.. Also If your not drinking a half gallon – 1 gallon of water a day then you are not drinking enough, you see water flushes out all that crap in your system.. so if you are like pretty much every other smelly bitch out there and drinking only 1 – 3 cups of water per day and think your doing enough then go ahead and keep fishing it up and crying about how bad you smell.. ”coffee, soda, high fat-sodium-sugary foods, and low water intake = strait up fishy insecure mess” …. hate me all you want but all you smelly girls out there, just try drinking 1 gallon of water a day for 2 weeks and i promise you better skin, hair, energy, health, and yesssss you will smell better too!!!

      WOW!! Seriously W O W!!
      Britt.. Out of all these ladies who have an issue that is common worldwide, you decide to be the judgmental IGNORANT SELF CENTERED B!TCH that has to put them down.. I don’t even know where you live or how far away you are from me, but I can tell you one thing: Your VAGINA sinks so bad I can already smell you here it my house. We all don’t have time to hate you because you are just another random chick, sorry I meant to say dumb b!tch who is probably going through worse that vaginal odor thinking she is better than all the other WOMEN here. So why don’t you take the baking soda, white vinegar, apple cider vinegar, garlic, along with some good soap , bleach and YOUR water gallon… Then shove it in your mouth NOT your vagina, YOUR MOUTH. To see if it cleans you up or at least soak your body along with your face so you won’t be talking or writing BS to women you don’t even know who have done nothing to offend you, yet you still did it out of pure ignorance and foolishness. Good day to you dear BRITT.

  94. I’ve been struggling with what seems to be a yeast infection for a while now. I was ashamed to go to the doctor and decided that I would try some home remedies but that failed so I finally went to the doctor. I was given some antibiotics which I took as instructed, the yeast seemed to go away but when the antibiotics finished it came right back. I want it to leave permanently!

  98. Gonna try this, 2. Baking Soda
    Baking soda is another ingredient that can be used to balance the pH level in your body. When the pH level is in balance, the problem of vaginal odor will dissipate.

    Simply mix one teaspoon of baking soda in a glass of warm water and drink it once a day for a few days.
    Alternatively, you can add one-half cup of baking soda to your bathwater. Soak your lower body in it for about 20 minutes. Dry yourself thoroughly with a clean towel. This remedy will help fight a yeast infection and can help get rid of odor quickly.

    I have one question, do I need to clean it after soaking my lower body or just leave it and dry?

  99. I have no idea if anyone knows about alum ( in Philippines it is called TAWAS). It is powder like & sold in Filipino/Asian stores just a 1/2 teaspoon diluted in water then use it for rinsing/washing you’ll have odor free & tighter vagina. Try it, works great!!! & also u can use only water for washing not douches, not soaps. ACV & white vinegar is good too.

  100. After giving birth to my second child, I was discharged only to return to the emergency room with such a foul odor that people could smell at a great distance away. Talk about embarrassing!! Needless to say I was admitted to the hospital and pumped with antibiotics. My body hadn’t discharged everything after giving birth. And the infection I got could have killed me had I not went in to get checked. Needless to say, now I am very sensitive to any odor from my lady bits. It’s true the foods you eat will change the odor. Just as broccoli or brussel sprouts give your urine a strong odor if you eat a lot of them in your diet. Too much of some of these foods can also affect not only your urine, but also your body odor as well as vaginal odors. Word of advice, watch what you eat and make note of how those foods affect your odor. And if something is just not right or so foul you can smell yourself…go get checked. It could be something very serious.

    • Penny, it’s something in your diet. Try a vegan diet for 21 days. No meat, dairy, soda, fast food. Load up on fruits, veggies, water, water, water! Try it and note the changes in your body. Also consume raw garlic daily while doing this. =)

  111. Everyone is asking how to get rid of the odor, but no one is inquiring about what is actually causing the odor. All the remedies may work for some but not all. 9 out of 10 if you’re experiencing vaginal odor, it’s your diet. Your vagina is your check engine light ladies, it’s telling you your body needs a check up. I have taken the prescription gel that’s mentioned above and the problem always returned after awhile. It wasn’t until I did a 3 day colon hydrotherapy session that the problem disappeared. Whenever I eat something such as meat, dairy or drink alcohol, I start having discharge within a couple of days. As long as I eat fresh foods, I’m completely fine. Pay attention to your body, hope this helps.
