For as long as I can remember, Ive struggled with body odor. I had overactive sweat glands which contributed to the problem.I had managed to get the sweating
under control, but sometimes, when under pressure or stress
, the sweating increases and produces a misty smell.On top of that, I have recurring BV, which produces a fishy odor during sex. That can be treated with antibiotic, but when it happens it makes me feel insecure.Just yesterday, after work, I went to my boyfriend's house following work. We watched tv for a while, right before we got physical, he stopped everything and asks, "what the hell is that smell?"I had showered that morning, so I didnt think I had any issues... This is second or third time he has pointed it out, saying its a turn off anf it makes him want to stop what he's doing. I have had multiple people walk away from me because of the problem... although I stay on top of my hygiene, body odor still is a problem for me.After my boyfriend's response, I cried amf wr haf an argument because i explained to him all that I had been through in my past... he broke up with me because he says he cant be sensitive to my insecurities or wants.This really effects my personal life... I'm very sensitive and insecure about body odor...Did
I overreact to his reaction?
How can I get past this?
How do I move forward and let all that I've been through go?
