Vagina odor treatment is not openly discussed among women. Perhaps this is because some women are very sensitive when you talk about the uterus, menstruation and vaginas. In today’s millennial world, vagina talks are still discussed in private although there are online communities involving women not only talking about vagina but womanhood in general.
