Dear LIB readers; I stopped using soap and now my V smells bad

A few weeks back, I shared a post from a gynecologist who advised women not to wash their vagina with soap. (Find it HERE). Well, we have feedback from a LIBer who tried the method...and she's not very pleased...:-). See it below...
OMG! I'm really hurting. Ladies remember what Linda taught us on this blog about not washing our vaginal with soap! A new guy I'm seeing and really crazy about called me some days ago that I should see a doctor because my vagina really smells bad. Never been this embarrassed in my whole life. So I'm going back to my soap scrubbing. Please ladies, soap scrub your V.
Haha! In all sincerity, though a lot of comments supported the idea of washing the vagina with just clean hands and warm water, I have never tried it. I just don't use as much soap as I used to...but not use soap at all? Hmm, hmmm, hmmmm! Anyone else with an unhappy lover? :-)

DO NOT USE SOAP! GO TO GOODIES OR A GOOD SUPERMARKET AND BUY FEMININE WASH AND FEMININE DEODORANT... SOAP IS TOO HARSH... FEM WASH DOESN'T HAVE THE HARSHNESS OF REGULAR SOAP AND IT IS FOR ONLY THE VAGINA. SIMPLE!

Even with soap scrubbing it smells,without soap?..... Never mind.

WHICH IS ALSO GRAT FOR THE WHOLE BODY


And also femme fresh xx

Don't mind the guy. Some guys r like dat, no matter how clean you are. Better still, avoid him releasing inside you becos sperm smells too. Im talking from experience, at age 24 have had more than 20 boyfriends.

Lmao, ewwwwwww, better add Jik, Dettol and izal if possible!!! Hehehe and Aunty linlin that pic is hilarious! Anyways the ladies will talk on this one. *cant stop lafing*

U can just use clean, warm water and femfresh or any mild soap that is designed for cleaning sensitive spots.

Anonymous said...

Ladies, you have to be very careful what type of soap you use. Understand feminine washes are ok because they are made for the sensitive area. As well as Dove bar soap because its so gentle. Otherwise, don't put Irish springs etc down there or else
you are asking for trouble.

Linda, do you wash your own Vagina with soap or not? The reader is an idiot, simples!!!

A lady i've been dating since last year used to use vaginal wash, mean while, i have this habit of fingering a lady and then secretly smelling my finger to see if it has an odour or not. With this lady, she always smelled fresh and all.. Even after sex, i rub my hands on my dick and smell the fluids, still smells fresh. But few weeks ago, just before our session, we were laying on the bed and i did my finger thing, i smelt my finger and behold, it stunk. I lost my sexual appetite instantly.. Played kissy kissy and smoochy smoochy with her and then stylishly asked her, what was the name of that her vaginal wash again, and if it came in different flavours,i then asked her what flavour she's using now. There and then, she told me she has stopped using it cos some of her friends complained that it was giving them irritation and she was scared it might give her an irritation too.. Said she's been using just water for some time now. I advised her to go back to using the Vaginal wash or to go see a Gynecologist to prescribe a non irritating vaginal wash. Verdict - ladies, wash your vaginal with mild something. Your vaginal is not just an ordinary skin, the stuff goes inside and its located in an air tight region. Do u brush your teeth with just water? Biko ladies, use soap.

Dear, this depends on individual, I will advise you wash your vaginal with clean water NOT TISSUE after each toilet use :urinating etc, I do this and I don't have vaginal smell.

you can as well use "beta dine vaginal solution" its medicinal not a soap, in a liquid, u will have to mix it with worm water to watch your vaginal with a pipe(mild), you will see direction on the cartoon of the solution, I tried this twice and its very lovely. but, i will advise you, use it once a month a week after menstruation, for moderate.

always wash your private part from the vaginal to the anus with clean water after each toilet use, NOT TISSUE, you can then use tissue to make the place dry after using the clean water, this help me a lot, i don't smell at all.

If you must wash you vajay jay with soap use unscented soap or just use vagasil ( its soap for that area) but it is well recommended not to use soap around that area because of chemicals also because it might kill useful bacterial in there. Research it on Google, this common knowledge!!!! (heath 101). also pay regular visits to your gynaecologist.

Anonymous said...

rather than using soap which is kinda harsh for that sensitive area, try using feminine was like Vagisil, summers eve.......... those are better and are made for your vajayjay....

How exactly did this your boyfriend tell you? We need details please.

I never use soap on my vagina except occasionally a soap-free, unscented pH-balanced wash (not available in Naija) and that, very occasionally and I've NEVER EVER been told that I smell down there.

My tips.

1. Go to the doctor. If there is a bad smell, you might have bacterial vaginosis probably caused by your soap or an STI. That can be dealt with with just antibiotics but go to the doctor first. I've had yeast infections but they don't usually smell.

2. After getting your all-clear, eliminate soap from your regimen and wash wash thoroughly with JUST water. Your vagina needs an acidic environment to thrive and most body soaps are alkaline but if you MUST use something to wash, try to find something ph-BALANCED, not the same soap you used for your body, thus from an acidic to neutral range. Unscented is best, your vagina does not need to smell like perfume. Some people rinse with water after every pee, I'm not that extreme but sometimes, if I don't feel so fresh, I rinse with water mid-day.

3. Wash before and after sex with water. If you know, you're getting lucky, give your vagina a quick rinse and wear cotton panties to allow it to breathe. Another big problem is when women wear polyester, lycra or nylon panties, which causes sweat to accumulate with its attendant smell. Cotton is more absorbent. Not that sexy but who cares.

4. Accept that it's normal for your vagina to have a scent and anyone who says it's bad is an asshole. My bf can inhale me all day long. There is a noticeable scent but it should NOT be repulsive, if you smell like fish, go to the doctor. If you know your hygiene is impeccable, you can tell your guy that his oporoko smells too and he should go to the doctor. Also, drink cranberry juice now and then. My bf can tell the difference.

Hope this helps. I'm pretty interested in hygiene and sex ed and a non-judgmental safe space for Nigerian women is sorely needed.

it could be as a result from your vjay jay cleaning itself......... OR if you didn't notice it or smelt anything before he said it then THE GUY WAS JUST BEING A RUDE JACKASS JUST TO MAKE YOU UNHAPPY OR FEEL LESS CONFIDENT..

Anonymous said...

You wash your vulva (external genitals) with soap and water. In the event that u want to wash inside your vagina(which is un advisable) you should use only water.

You people got it wrong. It's the vagina (inside) that is self cleansing. The external parts are not self cleansing.

It's like rinsing your face with only water, am
Nd wondering why you have eczema or pimples.
You wash all areas covered by skin with soap and water, which includes your external genitalia.

Don't put soap on your finger and insert into your vagina.

Honestly my Vj use to smell till I read ur blog weeks ago when I realized that it was due to the amount of soap I used in washing it, I never dated because I did not want any embarrassment do I decided to try the no soap method and God in heaven knows that it works 100% no single smell for hours, and now u started dating and my Bf just enjoys eating me down there, it could be a case of different stoked for different folks, cos of I meet a lady who has a sell problem down there I'll definitely tell her to try the no soap method

Anonymous said...

You can use really mild soap but even without soap if you use clean warm water and do a sitz bath every now and then you should be just fine. I've come across so many smelly vaginas. Some you even smell when they change their clothes or use your bathroom. Your V is NOT supposed to smell. That fishy smell is NOT normal. Go see a doctor because you probably have a bacteria infection which is most commonly gotten by sharing toilets, bad hygiene, unprotected sex...etc....

she has an infection.. she should go see run medical test abeg

Hahahaah......use toilet soap. Nor be only clean hand n water. Dohhhh

You don't need to use soap dear, just use feminine wash like femfresh or vagisil these are designed to clean and freshen ur v without causing irritation and they r both soap free. I will personally recommend vagisil i have used it for years and it does what it says

Anonymous said...

The LIB reader obviously has an infection and her past soap scrubbing was masking it. She should go and see the appropriate physician for testing to determine what is going on with her down there. She should also do it quickly because untreated STI/STD can cause infertility, if it has not done so already.

Mma said...

I need 2 ask her if she had more dan one sex patner b4 she met her new boyfriend. Havin unprotected sex with many guys can give u dat smell. Using soap 2 wash ur VJ is totally wrong.......

Chikaka said...

Use feminine wash. What type of undies do you wear too? Invest in cotton undies.

All student forum said...

Talking from medical point of view, i will say that she was already infected and she had not treated it properly. that is the reason why even when she applied the washing without soup method you thought on your blog did not work for her. the Virgina has it natural way of cleansing it self and using just only clean water to wash is ok, but using soup only cause the bacterias in the Virgina break down the soup and cause it to smell especially if she was already infected. she should treat herself first and she will be ok.

I was going to comment on that post but never got around to it. Ladies, there is no reason on this earth why you should be washing your vagina!!! (if i understand correctly, by vagina you mean vagina, the hole in your body that leads to your cervix and uterus). What is the rationale behind introducing soap into it and washing it out? Wash your vulva, o pari. If you feel a strong need to wash your vagina, and I can't imagine why, then you need to get yourself a vaginal wash which is specifically made for that purpose.
To the madam who says she stopped washing and was told it smells bad, you need to go see a gynaecologist or your GP. Vaginas were not made to be washed and when you have a foul odour coming from your nethers, check it out, infection is the most common cause. I have never washed by vagina, never will and nothing dey do me.

was the Dr who prescribed that remedy a male or female?
Pls ladies,even tho its presumed that the down region is its own natural cleanser,it still needs cleansing. Feminine washes like Sabi-Med,Summers Eve etc are tested,trusted and recommended (they have balanced ph-values)
So,pls keep that area as clean and fresh as necessary...SB!

And i also hear some men also have smelly,over-hairy,choky regions.(pls do the needful too)

you should not use soap, what you need to do is to see you doctor. You might have a vagina infection and would be given treatment for it.

Anonymous said...

You should not use soap as it kills the good bacteria in your vagina and also no use any perfume or scent as it irritates it ans causes it to smell. i would advice you listen to your boyfriend and see your doctor as you might have some infection that needs to be corrected.

Anonymous said...

I have been using warm water and clean hands for years & never had the slightest embarassment. I strongly believe that a healthy kitty doesn't smell bad. It simply doesn't. If there is a smell then something is wrong and needs to be addressed. All the same if a little soap worked 4 u,pls go back to it.

Anonymous said...

LOOOOL! I tried this same nonsense back when you posted it. Within few days my fresh cat wasn't as fresh as it used to be. Nobody told me before I went back to the good old way my mama taught me to wash myself. All those women that are washing their vaginas with just water are the same women that will be spraying perfume on it when they finish bathing!! Yeye people!! Abeg my fellow women, WASH YOUR VAGINA WITH SOAP AND RINSE IT WITH WATER.

Dlapikin said...

Linda your reader is a fool. The smell of your vagina is an indicator of your health as a woman. if her vagina smells bad she should drink more water and potentially visit a doctor. putting soap in there must have caused damage already as it destroys the live cultures down there and makes it prone to all kind of diseases mainly to yeast and urinary infections which when not properly cared for can affect your fertility or make you frigid. Women should not play with their bottom like that. This is a very serious matter.

leerato said...

Its very possible that the smelly V is as a result of using soap but started manifesting becos u stopped. I learnt from my secondary school days, b4 I even disV that the use of soap is dangerous. I don't use soap and my Boo has not complained, infact he conpliments it wen heading me.... Pls go see ur doctor, don't just decide on ur own what to do.#justsaying

I think her vgina has always been smelly and the soap sort of helped to mask the smell and further ruin her ph balance. What she needs is to go and see her gynecologist.

As ladies, once in a while we discharge e.g during ovulation ... we also bleed during menstruation!are you telling me that all that sticky discharge and blood should be washed away with only water? oh pls!!!!
ladies, pls continue to use a bit of mild soap and make sure you shave regularly!also focus more on the vulva, clit area and dont put soap deep inside your vagina!

KNOWLEDGE IS POWER....... said...

Wow Linda, I am happy that your blog provides information. However, I am a bit disappointed at your comment as I thought you were a 'well educated girl.' Could it be that she has contracted a STI from her lover? or perhaps just a normal infection from heat or moist down there? Or perhaps from the type of undies she is wearing? The vagina is a very sensitive place with bacteria, and some women even get infection just from having sex! YES IT'S TRUE! Others react to certain soap or excessive washing. Every vagina is different. So she has to go see her gyn. Her comment really has nothing to do with washing Vagina with or without soap. When your vagina stinks, you probably have an infection, it's normal if you are a woman. In this day of so much information on the web, things like this are easy to diagnose even if you are not a doctor. Just Google your symptoms and you will see.

Please take this as a constructive criticism. You are representing Nigeria all around the world, so I suggest you brush up on your knowledge of certain things before writing it for the whole world to see.

Me i use only warm water to wash n mine vi doesn't smell.But dis re some steps i take!(1)After ur monthly period boil water pour it in a bucket and add salt to d water den seat on d hot water for at list 10mints. (2) u can use medicated soap or feminine wash to wash d surface of ur vi nt inside ur vi o.Bt if d smell persist pls see a Doc.

fikky said...

There's a reason why different big pharm companies created a solution called "Feminine wash". It has the right ph balance. It won't dry u out or irritate you. Pls save urself the wahala and debates just be enlightened abt the delicate way the keep ur vjayjay clean. As much as u wanna argue it, the vag is NOT self cleansing.

Whether you continue using soap or not , you still need to see a doctor because the soap was just concealing the real problem. When you use soap it covered the real issue, but when you stopped it showed it. So please still see a doctor.

Anonymous said...

I have been using water for the past 10 years, so your issue is not that you use water, but that the fact you stopped using soap allowed you to see what has really been going on down there. See a doctor

Anonymous said...

lol, I don't think only clean, warm water will help. Yes, do avoid using soap, which can cause your V to smell as most soaps alter the PH balance which affects the natural bacteria there and can cause itching or bad smells.What she wants is "FEMFRESH" or any other "SOAPLESS" wash.Some of these are lightly fragranced and will definitely do a good cleaning job round there.

MJ said...

I feel the lady o jare. Just water ko, just water ni! Except you wash with water every hour. Just don't use harsh soaps, lightening soaps and the like. Use a mild soap, like baby soap. If water works for you, then very well. If not, okunrin ma ma sa fun yin ni o!!!(Men go pick race)

I think she should see a gynecologist, she may have an infection. My mum taught me while growing up to use soap to wash but when I got pregnant for my first child during my visit to antenatal classes, our gynecologist advise that we should stop using soap. No matter if the product clearly stated "vigina wash". He adivice that just clean hands and warm water and even went further to say that we should try not to insert our finger too deep into the vigina that u cld even feel ur cervic. Its dangerous and bad.
It was strange for us all at first I argue and also did some findings myself and its all TRUE. For my health and safe delivery of my baby I had to stop and I never experience any smell. Its still normal please ladies just use CLEAN HANDS and WARM WATER shikina.

uuum, if her vagina smells really bad...soap is not the problem! she might have an infection and really needs to see a doctor.

I agree with the OBGYN, you DO NOT need to wash ur vagina with soap. you can wash the area between your vagina lips (labia majora) and your clitoris with just a little soap. that's fine. but anything more or invasive with soap, is not necessary.

The vagina cleans ITSELF. if the smell is oozing out of her vagina hole particularly then its not a soap issue, she needs to see a doc. but if its the surrounding of the vagina, then soap can take care of it

Sincerely, I stopped for 5days too and noticed that d sweaty smell from d area was not palatable and for someone who likes my man to go down there before d real deal, no one taught me before I reversed to my vagisil!

I'm sure what the gynecologist was trying to discourage is the use of medicated or perfumed soaps. The best way to maintain intimate hygiene is by using a mild toilet soap or intimate feminine wash which help to maintain the normal pH of the private , this protects from irritation that may cause itching, infections etc

No foul smell and no itching.

Kim said...

My mother always thought me how to use soap to wash my privates since I was a little girl! Your entire body is covered with bacteria and dead cells, which in turn brings a bad odour if not washed with soap! Water only can't remove the nasty bacteria!! I never had odour issues, and it is a very refreshing sensation when I clean down there with soap! Do you wash your hands with only water when you finish using the toilet??? The same applies with private care! I don't use any fancy soap, just a regular soap will do the job! I feel bad for the guys that have to perform an oral on a vagina "rinsed" with only water! Disgusting!

The comments explained that you wash around your vagina with soap, ie your clitoris etc.. But the opening of your vagina, the vulva.. Where the DICK enters should be washed with only water. I guess dis isn't for everyone sha because me when I use things like femfresh in my vulva it actually gives me thrush! So the water thing works for me. If you go online and research you will find out that its true. This dingbat probably didn't wash her whole vagina area with soap! Anyway I guess everyones vagina is different. You can use reduced soap like linda. Me I don't use soap in my vulva but I use soap around my clit etc...

COMMON SENSE,D VAGINA HAS A NATURAL OFFENSIVE ODOUR,ITS LIKE RINSING UR HAND WITH CLEAN WATER ONLY AFTER HANDLING FRESH FISH.LOL

Anonymous said...

Well, Linda, I used to use vaginal wash or mild soaps before and my vagina still used to smell as in I could even perceive it. When I read that post the other day, I started using just water to clean that area. I use water anytime I have access to water after using the toilet and then use tissue to dry it up so that it doesn't stay damp or I use wipes when I can't find water. At night I change my pants, either wearing no pant at all or wearing a cotton pant. We should also wear trousers less often, as much as we can we should get some fresh air in there. Water works just fine for me. I don't even get to perceive any odour from that region again.

If ur V wan smell e go smell soap or no soap.ve neva used soap.all u need 2 do is concentrate more wen u wash.insert ur finger in2 it well nd wash out d discharge.morning & night
Just wash regularly,esp wen u pee use tissue or water

Anonymous said...

You don't use soap but warm water only won't cut it. Invest in feminine wash. Summer's eve and co don't contain soap and it'll make you smell fresher. Also, invest in baby wipes or feminine wipes when you pee.

This can really be a putoff, and you should rather appreciate the fact that he has the courage to tell you. Many guys will keep quiet and work away.

I hope this hasn't been the case before you stopped using soap, establishing this may be very helpful in ascertaining what actually was responsible. May be it had played a part in even your previous relationships.

Well, there are people with different levels of intelligence who read posts on this blog and though I never commented on that particular post, it really got me infuriated reading so many wrong things here. The vagina is within your body. The outer part of your vagina is the vulva. When they say do not wash your vagina with soap, they mean people who are in the habit of douching or sticking their fingers deep within to wash their vaginas. PLEASE BY ALL MEANS, LADIES, ALWAYS WASH YOUR VULVA with SOAP and WATER. This includes both the vulva (the lips of your vagina) and your clitoris. Thanks!

If i'm home all day I don't shower till i'm ready to retire for the night the most I do is rinse out my Vee with water after using the loo and before Nwoke m will eat me right (wink) and he has never complianes which is a good thing bcos he is as direct as sniper's bullet. However, I always shower with blistering hot water especially days I shower just once needless to say my Vee gets the cleansing of its life with little Soap (of course) and I stick a finger up in there and wash it out with water (you wouldn't believe the things that can hide in there (and they tell me the Vee cleans itself). I'm a great supporter of cleaning the surface of the Vee with a little soap and sticking a finger in there and rinsing it out with just water no soap and of course, visits to the gyno or lab (I already advised her to do so previously as it maybe underlying issue and not blame it on not using soap).

Ok,according to what I read,V smell is most times as a result of a fungal infection. I'd suggest you use garlic just peel a glove of garlic and insert at the tip of your V area don't worry it never gets missing inside. Put in the morning and evening

Use clean water and wash very well,it will NEVER smell,maybe you are washing the surface.After your period you can put a little lactacyd in your water and wash.

The smell would have still occurred with or without the use of soap. Women have changes in ph balance from period, douching, yeast infection etc. I advice no soap. Some soap still touches it while we are bathing anyway. Just rinse with that, don't add more

Have u people forgotten we have different body types. All this medical people just come up wiv rubbish and expect everybody to follow suit.

Small time they will say something gives cancer, another one will say that same thing helps prevent stroke. People should realise we all cannot do d same thing, we can't all be big nor slim nor can d same thing work for everybody! What is healthy for u is serious sickness for others. If u were using soap to wash ur va-j-j and it didn't smell, and u stopped and started using only water, the thing kon dey smell, please do what ur body wants!

Anonymous said...

Ladies, your vagina is like mounth or armpit, they are not self-cleaning. You must wash/clean them with something. Your mounth with a good tootpaste, your armpit with a good soap and your vagina, with a mild soap that has no perfumes of dyes. Washing your vagina with just water is a very bad idea and you run the risk of loosing guys like me. I run a sniffing test before I go downtown or even stick it. So for you ladies, especially the ones that say "if you ain't licking, you ain't sticking" please make sure to use soap and water down there!!!

Anonymous said...

Firstly, it's menstration.

There is nothing wrong with u, u just need to step up ur hygiene. Menstration blood always smells, wash well and don't take too long in changing ur pads. To reduce smelly blood issues, try tampons.

Once again, step up the hygiene.

Lol. I think it's more abt d person. Apart from using ordinary water, when u wee wee, do u wash with water or u just stand up?aw many times in a day do u change ur pants? U should at least change ur panties 2 times a day especially if u are in naija cos of the heat. Try doing dis and Pls don't use harsh or medicated soap down there. It will kill all d good bacteria and then start to smell. Except you av thrush,that's why it smells.

Do not use soap! Read link below for every detail a woman should know abt washing her vi-jay jay and understand it,.

http://www.faqs.org/health/Healthy-Living-V1/Personal-Care-and-Hygiene-Genital-care-for-females.html

the fact dt u were told not to use soap doesn't mean u shldnt take ur time and wash the place well. Use what ever but do not dip ur finger in to wash out the entire juice, cos u need d juice there for protection, and dt one doesn't smell, the only thing that smells is if u don't wash d exterior well or if u ve got an infection, just make sure u try and wash morning and night or any chance u get, I personally was each time I use d toilet be it no1 or 2, cos tissue doesn't really do a good job. Like I said, read d link ladies. Until I started using this method, I never knew what a natural healthy juice smells like, it's not aweful it's pleasant. Read this link after u finish d 1st one:

Linda, perhaps you and some other readers misread or misinterpreted the gynecologist's message.

You should wash your feminine area with soap EXCEPT the INSIDE of your vagina. So wash your 'lips' with soap, front to back and in-between.

If washing your EXTERNAL feminine area doesn't help with odors, then it's either (1) a yeast infection (see a doctor) or (2) types of food you eat. Some foods like milk and yogurt can increase bacteria in your vagina, giving it a strong, funky odor.

Personally, I'm almost 30 and I've never washed my vagina with soap! I have always loved the way I smell and taste :-)

@spirit,there's nothing better than a clean shaven pussy.My 'groove' uses d biddy whenever she pees n takes a dump 2 rinse her pussy & asshole with water.I love to spend quality time tongue-caressing her clit n sucking till she squirts in my mouth.She always and i mean always smells so fresh that i tongue fuck her ass too.Interestingly i'm unusually well endowed(11"+) and she loves to suck it without prompting,as a result i always rinse when i pee or poo and she shaves off all the hair around my entire nether region cos her tongue likes to probe my ass too.Sometimes i'd eat her out on her period cos we're freaks like that.

I think most people here dont know what their vagina is. Your private part does not constitute your vagina alone. Dipping soap into ur vagina is where d problem is. Washing the skin of your private part with only water will stink just the same way your body will stink if U bath with only.
