for a few weeks now ive had a rather unnatural foul smell coming from my lady parts. i dont have multiple partners, or douche, im actually really ocd about my personal areas and their hygiene
i have no discharge, no itch or burn, no swelling or any pain, but this smell concerns me greatly. its not the commonly heard of "fishy" smell either

Hello Kimmycub,

Welcome to the EmpowHER community. Thank you for coming to us.

Bacterial vaginosis, which is an overgrowth of normally occurring vaginal bacteria is the most common vaginal infection that causes a vaginal odor.

To to minimize vaginal odor,wash your external genital area. During regular baths or showers, use a very small amount of mild, unscented soap and lots of water.

Avoid douching. All healthy vaginas contain bacteria and yeast. The normal acidity of your vagina keeps bacteria and yeast in check. But douching can actually upset this delicate balance.
