Ladies, if we are being honest, all of us have experienced getting panicked when we notice a weird or unusual smell down there. What many people don’t realise is that there might not be a reason to panic. Having an odor in your pubic region and small changes in it from time to time is completely normal. These smell variations are likely a result of your menstrual cycle, your hygiene habits, or your sexual activity.
However, if you notice a significant change in odor down there, you might not feel comfortable talking about it but you should definitely NOT ignore it.
The best way to describe normal pubic odor is musky. During or right after your period, the odor might be more metallic. A “fishy” or other strong odor is not normal and can signal something is amiss.

How To Make Your Pubic Region Smell Good
Practising good hygiene down there is essential to making sure that you don’t have bad pubic odor.

Never use feminine products with harsh chemicals or additives because they can upset the natural pH down there.
