After your husband ejaculates inside of you, over time your vagina may have a not so pleasant scent. It is important to care for yourself properly after sex just as you do before the sex. This maybe elementary information, however it's still needful and can be overlooked due to distractions of being a wife.
One way to care for yourself is the basic soap and water. Now this is good, but it only gets the outer part of the vagina. The real odor comes from within. I know studies now say that douching is not the best solution because it drys the vagina out. However douching once or twice a month should be alright. If your vagina is dry, then you could purchase, a lubricant that is designed to be inserted in the vagina. It's like a light oil. FDS carries the product which can be purchased at Wal-mart or any drug store.
Another way to clean yourself properly is with a feminine wash. This would be an excellent choice because this wash is a gentle, soap free cleanser designed to gently wash away odor causing bacteria from the external vaginal.
Now the best approach in my opinion is to soak in the bath tub. Add vinegar to your bath water. Vinegar is an excellent odor replant. When bathing, those extra body fluids will come out. This way, water does seep into the vagina giving it a light cleanse.
It's best to keep feminine wipes in your purse for quick sex moments with your husband when you are out and about. Hey, it happens. Best to be prepared, right? Also, when done cleaning yourself from the use of the bathroom. It's best to use a scented panie liner to catch any discharge from sex. This discharge could have a smelly odor so it 's best to be protected and use a feminine spray if needed. You don't want to walk around with the 'wet' feeling. Not pleasant at all!
Why do I mention all of this? Why not? Besides, may not be you, but have you ever been in your car sitting and you smell yourself? It's not a fishy scent, but it's a light foul odor, so you find yourself keeping your legs tightly closed or especially if you are in public? Or maybe you went to the bathroom, pulled down your panies and boom! The foul sex scent hits you in your face (even after you cleaned properly, it's still the discharge of your husband's sperm and your discharge). Matter of fact, when you are done, you are hoping that no one goes in that bathroom stall that you were in. Doesn't have to be a public bathroom, it could be your own bathroom at home and your husband uses it right after you. Save yourself the embarrassment! Again, maybe not you, but you know that female friend you have and her vagina has an odor and you don't know how to tell her. Don't let it be you because it can happen.
So it's best to stay on top of your 'A' game. Do this by keeping feminine wipes and maybe a feminine spray in your purse so you can freshen up anytime and feel confident sitting, standing, dancing and even using the public bathroom.
