Our vaginas smell – all the time. We rarely notice, of course, because when the vagina has a balanced pH level the odor remains largely consistent and indiscernible. But it doesn’t take much to upset that pH: sex with a partner wearing a condom, as well as semen, tampons, menstruation, the use of vibrators and even eating certain foods with strong flavors and odors can all change the pH and bring about new and different smells.
