Our expert says:
females have a natural odour which is usually not offensive in nature. This odour may change a little depending on which stage of the menstrual cycle they are in. Offensive odours are often caused by vaginal infections eg candidiasis (thrush), poor hygiene, sexually transmitted diseases, in older women you would have to worry about cancers.
