My girlfriend has a Odor down there, why is this?

She showers 1 or 2 times a day. And Cleans well.

She might have a yeast infection or bacterial infection, which causes stinky odors. Time to see a doctor!

I'm sure it doesn't smell that bad. I mean, if you think that's bad, then you should smell the counterpart. that's disgusting. but I'm sure it doesn't smell that bad down there

It does.

I'm sure it doesn't. It can't smell that bad. I mean okay if you don't shower in like 5 days then yeah you might reek. But I don't think it would smell that bad.

Trust me, it does. It's a very strong, very fishy smell which you can smell from 4-5 feet away, sometimes more. And that has happened the day after a shower. I think I know what I'm talking about...
Report as
nah, I'm sure you don't. I've smelled fish before and they don't really have much of a smell.

She most likely has a bacterial infection or a yeast infection. There are over the counter meds to help, but I recommend seeing a doctor. They can prescribe a single pill to cure a yeast infection.

Sounds like a bacterial infection. You will both need to be treated probably with antibiotics. See a Dr. it will never go away by itself. If you both don't get treated you will pass it back and forth to each other. Use condoms!

sometimes that happens to girls. some things she can do is eat yogurt with live culture and lay off of the washing. what the situation is the 'down there' area has a balance of microbes that needs to be maintained. all of the washing is getting rid of the good microbes and the yogurt will help bring them back. i know, i know, we've all been told that microbes are bad. but they're not always so don't trying to be too squeaky clean.

She showers way too much so her vagina is trying it's hardest to produce it's natural blanket of fluids. Probably.

Hey, don't forget who made the sperm donation. The BF could have given it to her. She isn't being dirty. It happens because the girls body opening is close to where you poopy. It is very common knowledge that bacteria comes from there and can easily get into her vag.especially during lovemaking. Don't treat her badly, its not to be confused with a STD. It happens

One of my daughters developed this "problem" She was told by our doctor to use a special feminine deodorant the was inserted into her vagina. She had none of the normal conditions that caused the problem, it was just because of her particular body chemistry. These can be found at any drugstore, just ask the pharmasist for help. Sadly, I can't remember the name of the product. I believe they were called Norform personal deodorant, but I'm not 100% sure. Another choice might be to use vagasil wash, it's ph balanced and really helps keep a woman "fresh". I hope this helps.

This can be caused by any number of things from infection to STD or something less problematic.
If it is chronic it needs to be addressed by a doctor, she may need antibiotic along with topical creme.
