My girlfriend’s vagina smells unhealthy. How should I bring this up without making her feel embarrassed?
I’ve been with a handful of women so I have a little info on what vaginas smell like. This is different. This description is a little graphic so be warned: it almost smells like rotting flesh. Even after she showers, which in my past experience usually solves any issues with smell. I enjoy giving oral sex but cannot with her. It even makes PIV sex hard sometimes. I’m also worried she might have something wrong down there. What is a good way to bring this up?
101212237991: Hey, this is a tough one, so don’t beat yourself up for any anxiety towards bringing the subject up. It probably won’t be a fun conversation.
If I were her, I’d want it to be during a time that is *not* anywhere *near* sexytimes. That could just ruin her self esteem when it comes to that. Tell her you have a concern about her health, and ask if she’s seen a gynecologist recently. It could be that she knows about something going on that she hasn’t mentioned. If she doesn’t have any idea, see if she’d be open to making an appointment. It doesn’t mean there’s anything physically wrong, or that she has an infection, necessarily, but the gyno could have some ideas on what to do if that’s what she chooses going forward.
What I do *not* suggest: putting perfume/scents in her pubic area, even if they say they’re made for that kind of thing. They can cause serious infections. I also don’t suggest straight up telling her she smells rotten. Just focus on the concern, not on the smell or how it’s effecting your sex. If you approach it from a medical standpoint rather than an attraction one, the conversation could be a little easier.
Be prepared for some defensiveness or self esteem instability. Scent is something a lot of women are sensitive about. But in the long run, it’s better for both of you to address it sooner rather than later.
gamer_zzzz: Hey honey, please don’t take this the wrong way but I think you should get a check-up with your gynaecologist, it’s smells like you might have BV or something.
luckyx3: She could have BV. Tell her you’re concerned about her vaginal health because you notice an odor that seems like it shouldn’t be there. Don’t portray it as a superficial concern. And if she has BV she really should get it checked out anyway because BV left untreated can mess with your reproductivity.
dontwantanameplz: Dont bring it up before during or after sex. Make sure you say you’re worried about her health, which is a positive thing. Instead of saying how you dont like it and it makes sex worse ect which is negative
DeneldTremp: Don’t beat around the bush. Bring the subject up at a family dinner.
Nah don’t do that, but just be honest with her and tell her your concerns. Personally I’d make light of the situation with some humour but that’s me.
