I have always been super "in touch" with my reproductive anatomy. Maybe it was due to reading Our Bodies, Ourselves as a teen, being a peer counselor in high school, or working for a reproductive health provider for much of my 20s and 30s, but I have always been comfortable talking about vaginas, vulvas, clitorises, and occasionally grabbing a mirror to check mine out. That is, until I gave birth. There are things you can't un-see, you guys, and what your vagina looks like after giving birth is one of them.
How a Brazilian or Bikini Wax Should Look
What Does A Normal Vagina Smell Like? (Hint: It's Not Roses, It's Vagina)
So how do you make your vagina smell good? Have a vagina. They smell great. And I hate the myth that they don't, all of the fish jokes, and the deodorizing products meant to make believe it should smell like glitter and daisies or something.
Ever Wondered If Your Vagina Looks 'Normal'? You're Not Alone
Everyone has a different body chemistry, so a vagina will not always smell the same way. While a healthy vagina generally has a fairly similar scent, a yeast infection, a work out or other factors can change how it smells down there. Many women worry has an abnormal scent and try methods like douching. Since your vagina is already perfectly capable of cleaning itself and maintaining the right pH level, you should never, ever douche. Douching ruins your natural pH balance and makes you more likely to develop a bacterial or yeast infection.
So I am 17 years old and i am a virgin and I put my finger inside my vagina to see what its like and uh right at the beginning like a centimeter in it feels weird like theres a hard ridgidy bump or bone or something and im not sure if thats normal? It's completely normal. The inner wall has ridges on it up to a certain depth before it gets squishy. You don't have a growth or a tumor or anything.
