What Does Vagina Taste Like?
Vagina’s taste differs from one person to another. It can be sweet, sour and salty, or metallic depending on what you have eaten or what activities you did. The taste also differs every month, all thanks to your menstrual cycle! Keep in mind, girls, the different tastes of your vagina is common and normal – as long as it does not smell like a pungent fish or rotten odor!
If your vagina tastes metallic, chances are your vagina is healthy and naturally acidic! But don’t panic, bestie. It means natural acids in the vagina balances your balance the bacteria on your lady bits.
A metallic vagina taste usually tastes like a penny or a battery. If your intrusive thoughts are winning and if you want to taste a penny or a battery just to know the taste of a metal, then go ahead. That’s one of the tastes of the vagina.
If you’re menstruation period is over and you want to have some sexy time with your partner, you might want to give them a heads up that your vagina will taste like metal because traces of blood will still be in your lady bits. Remember, blood usually tastes like metal because of its iron content.
Salty and Sour
If you’re an active person and sweating is your bestie, note that your vagina can be a little bit salty and sour because of the sweat that formed on your inner thighs and your vagina after you exercise. Moreover, not cleaning yourself after you pee can leave your vagina salty and sour too because traces of urine can still be in and around your pussy!
What Vagina Shouldn’t Taste Like
Vagina is the home of sweat glands and bacteria and it is completely normal! The taste and smell of your vagina vary depending on the pH balance, hormones, and menstrual cycle. Some smells or tastes of the vagina can be a sign of something else towards your health so be mindful of these types of what the vagina should not taste and smells like!
If your vagina tastes and smells like a fish or it’s a pungent fishy smell, more likely it’s because of the chemical trimethylamine which can also be a cause of other vaginal odors too!
If the pungent fishy taste still persists, maybe it is because of Bacterial Vaginosis (BV) which occurs when there is a growth of anaerobic bacteria that can cause a rotting fish smell.
Another cause that can make your vagina taste and smells like fish is maybe you might have trichomoniasis, a sexually transmitted infection that can make your lady bits smell and tastes like a dead fish.
If you or your partner smelled a fishy scent, it’s a sign and it’s time to call your gynecologist so that they will further investigate the cause and the treatment of your fish-scented vagina.
Fruity and Flowery
We all love the smell of fruits and flowers and sometimes we want our pussy to taste and smell like fruits and flowers. If your vagina taste and smells like fruits and flowers, there’s nothing wrong! But if you notice a discharge that’s like cottage cheese down there, you might want to have a check-up because this could indicate a yeast infection so be mindful if it’s accompanied by feelings of burning, dryness, and itchiness.
If your vagina tastes and smells rotten or funky, maybe you might have STIs or STDs that should be treated right away.
Remember girlies, a healthy vagina smells like your natural odor or how your body responded to what you eat so if the taste or the smell is off, always, ALWAYS, observe and inform your OB-GYNE about it!
What Affects the Taste of Vagina?
Vagina’s taste will differ from time to time but this list is the factors as to why your vagina tastes that way!
You are what you eat. The taste of your vagina will depend on your diet! If you love to eat asparagus, chances are your urine will make your urine smell strongly and that can affect the smell and taste of your vagina.
If you love to eat spicy foods, you will sweat a lot, thus, making your coochie sweat a little more, and can make your vagina smell and taste aromatic too!
While partying, you drank a lot of alcohol and you met a cute person. Things got frisky and they went down on you. Besides perspiring a lot because you had too much to drink, your vagina’s smell and taste will also be different depending on what alcohol you take – it can be sweet, sour, or bitter!
Smoking can negatively impact your body, vagina included. How does it affect the vagina? The answer is simple! The smoke smell absorbs into your skin and hair making your body and even your coochie tastes like an ashtray. Moreover, the chemicals that are used in the cigs can also make your vagina more acidic and bitter.
If you always depend on your vagina to actually clean itself, well, it can also be a factor as to why your pussy tastes that different. Girlies, it’s okay to clean and do some basic hair maintenance to your vagina because the vagina also absorbs odors!
