After my menstrual cycle, I have a loud odor from discharging. What can I do to alleviate this problem? I find myself taking two or three showers a day to get rid of the odor?

A: Every month, your body undergoes a lot of changes when it is menstruating. In some, the level of these changes is normal, but in others the changes are so extreme that it affects the pH balance of the various fluids in the body. This in turn increases the level of acidity and alkaline properties in these fluids. This could be one of the reasons for the odor being present. If this is the case, there is not much you can do to get rid of the odor totally, you can only try and reduce it. An infection could be another reason for the odor. If the infection is mild, it can be taken care of at home. However, if the infection is severe, it will require medication. Whatever the reason, the one thing that you will need to do is make a few changes to...

Brownish stains before the actual menstrual flow, what is it?

A: First of all, let me say that this is completely normal and you have nothing to be worried about. Almost all women go through spotting. While some women have spotting issues regularly, most women get it just one in a while. menstrual fluid is made up of blood as well as cervical mucus and vaginal secretions. If you have an extremely light flow, it would result in a little blood seeping out along with your normal vaginal secretions and this causes the brownish stains that you see. As your flow is light, the blood remains within you for longer which causes it to becomes more brown than red. If you are trying for a baby, then you need to consider this as the first day of your period when making any calculations. If this spotting always...

Is it normal to have an odorless menstrual cycle?

A: The odor from a menstrual cycle can come from two things: first, if you have an infection, obviously the odor can be accentuated.

It is normal to have a small amount of odor due to the release of these fluids, but if excessive odor is noticed, having your doctor check for infection or paying increased attention to hygiene can decrease the odor....

What Is the Connection between the menstrual Cycle and Mood Swings?

A: The primary connection between the menstrual cycle and mood swings is that shifts in mood are common during the period leading up to menstruation and during a woman`s period. This is mostly due to fluctuations in certain hormones found in a woman’s system during this time.
