Patient : Is it normal for your vaginal secretions to have a slightly musty smell? It is not strong or fishy. My husband cannot stand the smell of my vaginal secretions, even after washing myself, so much so that he doesn't even want to have sex with me because the smell displeases him so much. I wouldn't consider it strong at all. I notice it, but it is not overpowering in any way. Is there anything I can do? Is it a problem with me or is it something he just needs to get used to? I try to keep myself clean and usually shower before having sex, but it just doesn't seem enough. My husband expects for me to just magically fix it and I don't know how! It's like me telling him that I can't stand the smell of his semen and tell him to change it. What do I do? Is there anything I can do about it or is this just the way I am?
