Due to this mindset, many companies these days push products meant to change the vagina’s natural smell and taste. Truth be told though; the vagina requires very little cleaning and how much cleaning you do is up to your discretion as the vagina is more than capable of cleaning itself [1] and this cleaning is evident by a mild white or yellowish discharge [2] but, much like the PH balance, discharge has been known to change during the menstrual cycle [3].
