Home Remedy For Vaginal Odor - How to Get Rid of a Fishy Vagina Smell

Posted: 10/06/2009 |Comments: 0 | Views: 331 |

If you are aware that you have a fishy vagina smell, then please be assured that you are not alone. Our female bodies are pretty complex and anything which upsets the delicate balance of the vagina can cause an overgrowth of bacteria, resulting in this rather unpleasant condition.

Fortunately, there are a number of things that you can do right away and one of the most effective strategies is to use a home remedy for vaginal odor, rather than using expensive over the counter medications which often do little more than mask the underlying cause.

The odor is caused by an imbalance of the naturally occurring bacteria within the vagina. Under normal circumstances, any harmful bacteria is controlled by the beneficial bacteria (Lactobacillus). It is often difficult to pinpoint what might have caused an imbalance but it can be something as simple as using perfumed products around the vaginal area, a change in sexual partner or simply being "under the weather".
The key is to create the ideal conditions for the growth of the good bacteria, whilst using strategies which help you deal with the fishy vagina smell at the same time.

One good home remedy for vaginal odor is live natural yogurt. Live yogurt contains Lactobacillus and eating it can help to strengthen the body's own supplies. Some women also find it helpful to dip a tampon in the yogurt and insert it directly into the vagina for a couple of hours. Another good remedy is tea tree oil. The combination of tea tree oil's powerful antibacterial properties coupled with the fact that it is gentle enough to be used in sensitive areas make it a potent enemy of vaginal odor. Simply add a few drops to a warm bath and soak for a few minutes. It can also be beneficial to use tea tree oil pessaries inserted into the vagina and these are available from many health food stores.

To get rid of the fishy vagina smell, try these following tips:-

* Wash the area just twice a day using unperfumed products
* Wear a panty pad throughout the day which can be frequently changed when necessary
* Change your sanitary protection frequently
* If you are sexually active, use condoms until the problem settles
* Wear only cotton panties with a cotton gusset as synthetic ones will trap in moisture and warmth, creating the ideal conditions for bacterial growth.

    Under normal circumstances, there are two types of bacteria present in the vagina and a balance is maintained, as the "good" bacteria controls the "bad". When an imbalance occurs (for which there is often no known cause), the bad bacteria will multiply profusely and cannot be controlled.
