Will douching help odor?
Posted on: 04/24/2007
i notice that when i wear underwear, that is the time that i end up having the unpleasant smell. when i dont wear any.....i know, weird.....i dont have any odor. what may be causing this? and will douching help this?
Douching is not a good idea unless a doctor tells you to do it, for a very specific reason. Everyone has a discharge and a little, not so unpleasant odor. If the odor is bad, or the discharge changes, it might suggest an infection - and needs to be seen by a doctor.
