That’s a very good question and one that I can’t really answer accurately. Basically, It should have a bit of a smell but should not smell bad. Every woman smells differently so really it depends on you. If your vagina smells fishy, yeasty (think vegemite or beer) or like old blood, this is abnormal and should be seen to by your doctor. In terms of making it smell ‘nice’, the worst thing you can do is use perfumes, deodorant or vaginal douches (rinses). They make you prone to infection which will make you smell bad, and make you sore, itchy and uncomfortable. So long as you have good hygiene, wash every day and change your pad or tampon regularly during your period, there is nothing to worry about. Unfortunately, a girl’s worst enemy is other girls, especially in high school. Try and lead by example and say only nice things about other people.
