While your *vagina* (the internal organ) is self-cleaning and doesn’t need to be washed, the external parts of your groin (your vulva/labia and skin folds) do need a gentle wipe down on a regular basis, so it’s really great that you’ve found a soap that you like 🙂

lauralaura123 :  I have used femfresh for years and love it. Of course you should only clean the external parts beause you dont want to mess with the ph. I also find that shaving make a massive difference in keeping things feeling fresh. Nothing wrong at all with hair but I just find it makes me sweat a lot more so I keep it trimmed.

I’ve noticed that certain foods will cause a smell that is more noticable than the normal. I agree with PP, shaving helps . 

Has there been any changes in medication or diet that could be throwing your pH off?

My doc recommends the green tea or oatmeal scented bar soap from Trader Joe’s. She sees a lot of irritation from feminine wash and recommended those other soaps to me when I experienced it too. I absolutely love them and use it daily. No smell. No fuss! Super gentle and soothing!

I agree shaving or waxing, I get Brazilian waxed once a month and use regular soap and have zero issues. I’m extremely confident throughout the day even when I sweat, having no hair down there makes a difference for me.

lauralaura123 :  Ha I get it, it’s not for everyone. Have you tried using unscented au natural baby wipes when you go through out the day? I use them when it’s that time of the month, it helps keep me fresh.

I’ve used summers eve for like 10 years maybe more but I do make sure to use the non scented kind because fragrancey smells=chemicals (unless they’re natural but pretty sure summers eves aren’t).

I also use Summer’s Eve but only the unscented, sensitive skin version. My skin is extremely sensitive, and I can’t take baths or use scented washes of any kind down there without risking an infection.
