Feminine cleansing?

I have been so concerned with this lately. I've had "scent issues" for awhile and it sucks. I've been to the gyno TWICE about it, and both times havent helped. Im a very clean person and i regrd that area with alot of respect. I have a boyfriend for the first time in two years, and this odor issue makes me tense and nervous everytime we go into :naughty territory" Im at a loss. My doc brushes it off as no big deal, but it is a big deal. I used to not have this problem, it just appeared one day, which is waht bohters me the most. This thread is really helpful

Honestly, it never crossed my mind to do anything special. I have dry skin issues, so I try to use sulfate-free soaps and body washes all over my body, and whatever I use on my body is what I use on my feminine area. Just like on my body, I don't rely on just soap to clean myself. I always use a wash cloth and when I'm finished scrubbing my body, I gently scrub my nether regions and then toss the wash cloth in the hamper. One thing I always make sure to do is never let any soap sit for too long, otherwise I'll get irritated. Not pleasant.

this thread is making me cry! man, people get so pissed off when you start talking about washing the puss. (i wonder if that will show up). hahahahha.

anyways, body wash is too slippery and is hard to rinse, so i use a bar of soap, whatever is on hand. i personally don't like how summer's eve feminine wash smells. i am very sensitive to smell, so if i feel yecky, i shower twice or three times in a day. i think i have a little bit of "body ocd." oh well.
The vagina cleans itself constantly so I don't worry about that. I use a little Dove unscented soap on all the external bits.

I don't use anything, as I also know that you shouldn't be using soaps or anything in or around your lady bidness.

I don't use anything special to wash my special places. I hope we've moved past the days when women douched with Lysol.

OMFG!!!! I didn't know Lysol used to sell itself for use as a douche! Learn something new every day...

OMG, that ad is too funny. This in particular:

Wives often lose the precious air of romance, doctors say, for lack of the intimate daintiness dependent on effective douching.
intimate daintiness???? Oh come ON.

I think the "ad" is a joke (i.e., not real).

Here's another Lysol ad for those of you interested in Tips for Disinfecting Your Floors and Hoohahs.

ETA - the advertisers used euphemisms to make women believe that douching with lysol could prevent pregnancy.

ETA - the word is that this was actually a covert contraceptive practice.

Most all history of birth control documents mention the lysol ads. I edited my response above at the same time you were posting, it seems.

And of course all of the doctors were men...
That 50s ad that someone has posted before kinda reminds me of this...

And I rinse very well, and I do have to say that I use my fingers and rinse the inside really well too. Especially after my period. I just wanna flush it out. I mean, I know it's self cleaning, but I don't wanna wait for it to drain on it's own. Then stuff'll sit up there for too long, and I'm not comfortable with that. I think it's my job as the owner of the body to help it along a little.

Please excuse any typos. For the time being, we are blaming it on my computer.
