Keeping this in consideration, why does my discharge smell metallic?
The metallic scent shouldn't linger too long after your period is over. If your vagina has had contact with semen, this may change the pH level and cause a metallic smell. If you're experiencing bleeding unrelated to your period or the metallic smell continues with itching and discharge, it's best to see a doctor.
Additionally, what fruits make your VAG taste better? Cigarettes, caffeine, red meat, onions, and garlic make it taste worse. For the ladies, our sister site Jezebel recommends pineapple, celery, yogurt, red grapes, cranberry juice, lots of water, mint, watermelon, and strawberries.
Also to know, what does a metallic smell mean?
Scientists have sniffed out the reason for the musty, "metallic" odor you smell after handling coins or touching metal objects. A new study finds that the smell of iron is, ironically, a type of human body odor, created by the breakdown of oils in skin after touching objects that contain the element.
Why does my discharge smell like old blood?
The smell is usually caused by old blood, which has a bad scent when it oxidizes, Dr. Shepherd says. It can also change the pH of your vagina (which should be between 3.5 to 4.5), allowing it to become a breeding ground for different bacteria or an infection.
