Post-Menstrual
Smell: When to
Suspect Vaginitis
Menstruation is a natural physiological process for women.
However, various factors such as changes in living conditions,
high stress, psychological factors, excessive exercise, and
gynecological diseases can influence menstruation. An odor after
menstruation can sometimes be attributed to physiological
reasons, often linked to the poor quality and breathability of
sanitary pads.
However, pathological factors cannot be ignored.
Conditions like endometritis, trichomonal vaginitis,
and other gynecological diseases are common
culprits.
For women of reproductive age, menstruation
signifies normal reproductive function. Yet, some may
notice an unpleasant odor in their genital area post-
period, causing discomfort and embarrassment.
1 Physiological Reasons
2 Pathological Reasons
What Causes an Odor
After Menstruation?
Physiological Reasons
Using low-quality sanitary pads with poor breathability during
menstruation can irritate the external genitalia. This irritation can
prompt the secretion of substances from the external genital
glands, leading to dampness and an unpleasant odor. Symptoms
may include itching in the genital area but typically do not
involve abdominal pain or increased vaginal discharge. In such
cases, washing the intimate area with warm water should quickly
alleviate the symptoms.
Pathological Reasons
Gynecological conditions like endometritis,
trichomonal vaginitis, and pelvic inflammatory
disease can produce inflammatory secretions in the
reproductive system, increasing vaginal discharge. If
untreated, these conditions may result in a foul
odor in the genital area.
Vaginitis, if untreated, can cause foul-smelling
discharge, increased discharge, and itching. For
instance, trichomonal vaginitis, a common
vaginal inflammation caused by Trichomonas
vaginalis infection, leads to increased vaginal
discharge, genital itching, and thin, foamy,
yellow-green discharge.
Vaginitis symptoms include increased vaginal discharge,
changes in discharge characteristics, color, and odor,
along with itching and a burning sensation in the genital
and vaginal areas. During menstruation and the
surrounding days, hormone levels are at their lowest,
making the female reproductive system more susceptible
to infections.
The types of vaginitis causing vaginal odor are often
trichomonal vaginitis or bacterial vaginosis. Once
diagnosed, these conditions can be treated with herbal
medicines like Fuyan Pill, which help reduce inflammation,
regulate menstrual cycles, and alleviate symptoms. For
trichomonal vaginitis, it is advisable for both sexual
partners to receive treatment simultaneously to prevent
recurrent infections.
1. Pay Attention to Clothing: Wearing tight-fitting clothes,
especially during menstruation, can increase sweating and
body odor. Opt for cotton underwear and loose-fitting
clothing to ensure proper ventilation.
2. Change Sanitary Pads Frequently: Change sanitary pads
every 4 hours to reduce skin contact with moist pads.
Increase the frequency of changes if menstrual flow is heavy.
3. Maintain Hygiene: Contrary to some beliefs, maintaining
personal hygiene is crucial during menstruation. Avoiding baths
for more than two days can lead to odors from menstrual blood.
4. Focus on Intimate Care: Women should prioritize intimate care
along with other personal care routines. This includes keeping
the intimate area clean and addressing any concerns.
In summary, if you experience abnormal
symptoms like foul-smelling discharge or changes
in color, undergo routine vaginal discharge
examinations and seek prompt treatment.
Additionally, maintain personal hygiene, keep the
genital area clean and dry, and abstain from
sexual intercourse during treatment to prevent
cross-infection.
If you have questions about your condition and
treatment, contact our experts. Most questions are
answered in 24 hours.

Post-Menstrual Smell- When to Suspect Vaginitis.pptx

  • 2. Menstruation is a natural physiological process for women. However, various factors such as changes in living conditions, high stress, psychological factors, excessive exercise, and gynecological diseases can influence menstruation. An odor after menstruation can sometimes be attributed to physiological reasons, often linked to the poor quality and breathability of sanitary pads.
  • 3. However, pathological factors cannot be ignored. Conditions like endometritis, trichomonal vaginitis, and other gynecological diseases are common culprits. For women of reproductive age, menstruation signifies normal reproductive function. Yet, some may notice an unpleasant odor in their genital area post- period, causing discomfort and embarrassment.
  • 4. 1 Physiological Reasons 2 Pathological Reasons What Causes an Odor After Menstruation?
  • 5. Physiological Reasons Using low-quality sanitary pads with poor breathability during menstruation can irritate the external genitalia. This irritation can prompt the secretion of substances from the external genital glands, leading to dampness and an unpleasant odor. Symptoms may include itching in the genital area but typically do not involve abdominal pain or increased vaginal discharge. In such cases, washing the intimate area with warm water should quickly alleviate the symptoms.
  • 6. Pathological Reasons Gynecological conditions like endometritis, trichomonal vaginitis, and pelvic inflammatory disease can produce inflammatory secretions in the reproductive system, increasing vaginal discharge. If untreated, these conditions may result in a foul odor in the genital area.
  • 7. Vaginitis, if untreated, can cause foul-smelling discharge, increased discharge, and itching. For instance, trichomonal vaginitis, a common vaginal inflammation caused by Trichomonas vaginalis infection, leads to increased vaginal discharge, genital itching, and thin, foamy, yellow-green discharge.
  • 8. Vaginitis symptoms include increased vaginal discharge, changes in discharge characteristics, color, and odor, along with itching and a burning sensation in the genital and vaginal areas. During menstruation and the surrounding days, hormone levels are at their lowest, making the female reproductive system more susceptible to infections.
  • 9. The types of vaginitis causing vaginal odor are often trichomonal vaginitis or bacterial vaginosis. Once diagnosed, these conditions can be treated with herbal medicines like Fuyan Pill, which help reduce inflammation, regulate menstrual cycles, and alleviate symptoms. For trichomonal vaginitis, it is advisable for both sexual partners to receive treatment simultaneously to prevent recurrent infections.
  • 10. 1. Pay Attention to Clothing: Wearing tight-fitting clothes, especially during menstruation, can increase sweating and body odor. Opt for cotton underwear and loose-fitting clothing to ensure proper ventilation. 2. Change Sanitary Pads Frequently: Change sanitary pads every 4 hours to reduce skin contact with moist pads. Increase the frequency of changes if menstrual flow is heavy.
  • 11. 3. Maintain Hygiene: Contrary to some beliefs, maintaining personal hygiene is crucial during menstruation. Avoiding baths for more than two days can lead to odors from menstrual blood. 4. Focus on Intimate Care: Women should prioritize intimate care along with other personal care routines. This includes keeping the intimate area clean and addressing any concerns.
  • 12. In summary, if you experience abnormal symptoms like foul-smelling discharge or changes in color, undergo routine vaginal discharge examinations and seek prompt treatment. Additionally, maintain personal hygiene, keep the genital area clean and dry, and abstain from sexual intercourse during treatment to prevent cross-infection.
