When I have my period it generally doesn't smell. Or at least not badly.

But feckin hell I STINK this month.

Is this normal? I'm old 46 am I going to start to be a smelly old fart now?

Now you need to get lots of cats and stop washing your hair.

could you have an infection or something?

the only time I have smelled bad is post partum with ds2 when I stank and then (sorry, this is way TMI) passed a big manky clot and the smell went away.

so, I think if it's particularly bad I would probably see the GP

Have a friend at work and always know when it is her period. But last month I stank myself, which freaked me out. Don't think there's anything you can do - I use mooncup and was rinsing it out every half hour, but still stank sad

And the hair on my chin keeps growing back thicker.
