The monthly phase of every woman’s period can be very hard and tough to deal with. Women experience different symptoms like cramps, mood swings, diarrhea, hunger, and many more. Another bad thing is the foul smell which comes with the blood. It can sometimes become so foul and apparent, and also followed by backaches and acne avalanche.
Here are some of the main reasons why the period blood smells:
PH balance – During the period, the levels of the pH raise, which makes the blood less acidic, resulting in bacteria growth down there and eventually bad smell.
Bacteria – During the period, there are high chances of present fungus and bacteria in the uterus lining. The uterus lining sheds during this process and that results in smell in the blood.
