Well, wish I had a better response but honestly the best thing to do is just wash really well. Douching is really not a good idea - your vagina is self-cleaning & douching interferes with the natural bacterial culture of the vagina. It could also spread or introduce infection.

truee.....All I would reccomend is go to your local health clinic or doctor and get medication for it...It should clear up within a week...Dont douche!
It may also be a yeast infection...But I would get it checked out first before you go buying unnecesary creams..

If it is just the residual smell left over from your menstral cycle, then you can just take a nice long soak in a tub filled with warm water (keep your legs open obviously) no bubble bath.

Now if the smell is caused from an infection i.E fishy smell then you need to see a doctor for meds.
