My name is Candice and I am 16 years old. My boyfriend is a virgin but I am not, and he isn't ready to go all the way with me. Instead, he wants to "go down" on me, but I have this weird smell even though I take a shower every day, and dry my vagina well everyday, I can't seem to get rid of the musty smell. What is it and HOW do I get rid of it... Please help me.

- Scared Smell


Dear Scared Smell,

Every woman has a different smell, so it's hard to determine what's a normal smell and what's an abnormal smell. However, sometimes a musty smell is directly related to a problem -- therefore, I suggest that you go to a doctor. Assuming the doctor concludes that nothing is wrong, then this might just be the your smell. What it smells like to you is probably very different to others. Just like I always think my thighs are much bigger than anyone else does.

I hope this helps,
