You write "Washing underwear in hot water and/or with bleach will kill any microbes that sit in the underwear. This might help reoccurrences of vaginal infections."

However, I know a lady who's yeast infection only went away when she stopped washing her underwear in bleach!

Very often, when a woman notices that she has an unpleasant odor, one of the first things she does is to start washing excessively, not knowing that this can actually make the problem much worse! The vagina has it's own "ecosystem" and under normal circumstances, the natural lubricants help maintain balance and keep the area clean.

Overwashing can deplete these lubricants, making the chances of bad vaginal odor even worse. Therefore, you should ensure that you wash only twice daily, avoiding the temptation to use perfumed products to mask the smell as these can even further deplete the natural balance.

Another very simple thing you can do is to ensure that you always change your sanitary protection regularly-even when the flow is light. When you have bad vaginal odor, leaving tampons in, or towels on, for longer than a couple of hours can worsen the condition.

You should avoid wearing panties made from synthetic fabrics as these inhibit the circulation of air around the vaginal area, creating the ideal damp, warm conditions for bacterial growth. Cotton is by far the best fabric to wear and if you enjoy wearing silky underwear, save it for occasional rather than everyday use. In addition to this, avoiding tight fitting trousers and pantyhose can help.

Whilst you are in the throes of a bad bout of vaginal odor, one thing you can do which will mask the smell a little without causing the problem to get any worse is to wear a thin panty liner. This will help absorb some of the smell, whilst being easily changeable during they day-particularly useful if you are at work.
