Feminine Vaginal Leaking Odor Products
Vaginal Odor Causes
Vaginal odor is one of those things as women we deal with, but it seems to be a hush, hush secret. It can be extremely embarrassing, especially if you are in a social situation. The biggest contributing factor to vaginal odor is moisture. Because the genital area is where wastes are expelled from our bodies, there is always going to be the battle of moisture.
The other thing that leads to vaginal odor is leaking. Vaginal leaking is extremely common and can happen in any variety of situations. For some women it only happens when they cough or sneeze. While other women experience leaking without any sort of warning.
Sometimes just bending down to reach something can cause this to happen. The way to prevent this from happening is keeping the genital area dry.
