Body Odors and Associated Diseases and Disorders
Human vaginal odor most likely consists of a number of components, including ordinary odor in the genital region (vulvar secretions from sebaceous, sweat, Bartholin’s and skene’s glands), mucus from the cervix, endometrial and oviductal fluids exuded from the vaginal walls, and exfoliated cells of the vaginal mucosa. Some female bromidrosis patients refer to malodor in the genital region, but do not know whether it is genital skin surface bromidrosis or due to vaginal discharge. Some report discolored underclothing. These patients are concerned about the malodor as well as the discoloration, and wish to receive permanent treatment relief.
