I have a pretty rudimentary view of the caveman era. I picture men, clubbing women over the head, bringing them home to provide for them and to pro-create , and deciding their women are beautiful when baby is born. I don't think that checking out their woman's vagina was ever on their list of priorities . But then again, they had bigger monsters to fear.
Cut to my life in the land of the beautiful - Beverly Hills - where beauty is a multi-million dollar industry and doctors are apparently creating vaginas that look like flowers , unmasking women's clitoris' (for supposed "better pleasure"), potentiating the G-spot and re-creating virgin-like hymens (I really don't even know why). Folks, you've got too much time and money on your hands if you are looking down there and trying to create some level of " perceived beauty ." And frankly, if a guy's comment about your region, down under, can send you off with such lowered self esteem that you would seek...
Our vaginas smell -- all the time. We rarely notice, of course, because when the vagina has a balanced pH level the odor remains largely consistent and indiscernible. But it doesn’t take much to upset that pH: sex with a partner wearing a condom, as well as semen, tampons, menstruation, the use of vibrators and even eating certain foods with strong flavors and odors can all change the pH and bring about new and different smells.
Some of the most common odors are:
What it might mean: A fishy smell can be a sign of either bacterial vaginosis, a bacterial infection, or trichomoniasis, a common and easily treated STI . With both, you might also notice a white or gray discharge .
Should you see a doctor ? Yes. Both of these infections are treated with antibiotics.
What it might mean: You have recently had your period or you have recently had sex where semen entered your vagina. Both of these c...
Definition Group B streptococcal septicemia is a severe bacterial infection that affects newborn infants . See also: Neonatal sepsis Alternative Names Group B strep; GBS Causes, incidence, and risk factors The term "septicemia" refers to an infection in the bloodstream that may travel to different body organs. Group B streptococcal septicemia is caused by the bacterium Streptococcus agalactiae , which is commonly called "group B strep" or GBS. A newborn with septicemia is very sick. GBS is commonly found in adults and older children, where it does not usually cause infection. There are two ways in which it may be passed to a newborn baby: The infant can become infected as he or she passes through the birth canal. In this case, babies become ill between birth and 6 days of life (most often in the first 24 hours). This is called "early-onset" GBS disease. The infant may also become infected after delivery by coming into contact with people who carry the GBS germ. In this case symptoms appear late...
