What could be the cause of nipples and vagina having an onion taste but no odor?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with the issue? In general, how has your health been lately?

I have had this issue for about 5-6 years now. I have searched the web over & over & see lots of women with the issue but has yet to find anything that has a solution for it. I am very healthy

This issue is not diet related.
I’ve also tried using antibacterial and medicated soaps, nothing works.

Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 6 months ago

it is most likely due to your body chemistry and your genetic makeup

how old are you?

onions have can have a smell of sulfur or organosulfur molecules

do they taste like raw or cooked onions?

I am 28 but have been dealing with this issue since about age 22.I guess raw onions. It’s just a musty like taste.If it was my genetic makeup or body chemistry then why haven’t I always been like this?
Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 6 months ago

after age 22, you can develop more maturity of your sexual glands

how do you know your vagina taste like that?

My boyfriend has told me and I can taste it when his kisses me after oral. And I have actually licked my own nipple and got the same taste. I see the question being asked a lot on the web so I’m not the only person that is dealing with this. And even if I developed more maturity of sexual glands why would it be an onion like taste? This makes no sense to me.
Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 6 months ago

sometimes our sexual glands can make odors

every person is different

many of the odors and taste are due to genetic differences between us.

a small gland producing a small bit of sulfur can alter your body taste and chemistry.

THERE IS NO ODOR. It’s just a taste. I’m looking for a solution for this problem but you’re basically telling me this is normal when I know that it’s not.

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.
