Dear BeingGirl Experts,

I have a serious question. At school my friends and I were talking about personal things, and one of them said, well, do you smell down there (the vagina area)? and another one said that it doesn't smell if you clean it and take care of it. So how do you clean and take care of your vagina area?

 

And one more question: Is it bad to shave your pubic hair? Is there anything wrong with doing that? Thank you for your time.

Dear Jen,

Each of us has our own unique vaginal scent. You know what yours is like. When it changes because of sweat or perspiration this can create an odor. This happens when perspiration comes in contact with bacteria on your skin. For this type of odor antibacterial wipes or washing this area with antibacterial soap and water should help. You just don't want to overuse these cleansing products. When you overuse them you can rinse away healthy bacteria and the bad ones will take over. Pubic hair grows to protect the vulva area from sweat and dirt. Because of this most girls choose just to remove the bikini line and trim the remaining pubic hair. Your bathing suit or bikini line is the line used as the guide for where to remove pubic hair. This is why it is often referred to as the "bikini line". BeingGirl has great information on how to shave the hair in your bikini line area you should read.

 

Hope this helps,

Your BeingGirl Experts

Hey prettygirl4444 um some where on this website I read that its ok if the discharge is yellowish, white or clear. And plus, if you have sensitive skin Dove soap is fine to clean that area with. Also as a lot of other people said, you can also use Vagisil.

@Prettygurl4444, actually ya that stuff is discharge and it can be white or yellow you should only be concerned if it is green or brown or something and smells like fish so your perfectly fine its just a natural cleaning process and its a big step towards your period!

Dear Prettygurl4444, you need to see a doctor the fluid in your underwear is supposed to be white if it is yellow that could be the sign of a infection!!

There are different brands of wash that is safe to use "down there". Vagisil and FDS works really well and keeps you fresh all day.
