Another side of PMS is that you may pick up some interesting food habits. Progesterone can lead you to crave unusual foods, or compulsively eat. This change in your usual diet can lead to some funky smelling stool and of course, the dreaded period farts.
To counteract the stink, you could try to avoid overeating and especially steer clear of refined sugars as well as processed foods. That being said, if you want to eat all the chocolate when you’re PMS-ing then go for it!
Another explanation is that it’s normal for menstrual blood to have an odour too, which may contribute to what you’re smelling. Other people probably can’t smell it, and it’s simply the sign of a healthy vagina, so there’s no need to be ashamed of it. Everyone’s vagina and vagina smell is different – just like how your clothes smell different to your friends because of your unique laundry powder and perfume combo! If you’re feeling a little insecure, you may feel more comfortable using a scented towel like Ultra Normal Deo Fresh
which has a subtle fragrance to leave you feeling fresh.
