What can women do about the scent in their vaginal area? A guest on Dr. Oz’s show asked what she can do about the smell of her vagina… she said her husband likes the smell, but she doesn’t find it appealing. Dr. Oz said that one of the roles of pubic hair is to trap the sexual pheromones (that vaginal “scent”) down there, which is why men (and her husband) are attracted to the vaginal scent.
Do NOT use perfume sprays or douches, because this can really mess up the pH balance in your genital region and cause all kind of vaginal infections. However, if the smell does bother you and you aren’t near a shower, you can use unscented baby wipes.
