Customer Question
I have smelly period...

I have smelly period that people can notice around me. I have gone to do BV test several times when I'm not on my period and doctors seems not to find anything. People around me can notice the smell and I'm very concerned about it. Is there something I'm missing?

Doctor's Assistant: Have you been keeping a personal medical record?

Sorry what do you mean by medical record

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I've had bv in the past but was healed

How is it that you know that people are noticing the smell, it's something they have said?

Is it everytime before your period or only on occasion?

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
