This is not something that I ever thought I would be announcing to the world, but know enough about this site to know that we all feel able to talk about the most of intimate of subjects.
When I was diagnosed with OC (3b) I had not had any symptoms. I now recall that for a year or eighteen months prior to diagnosis I had been suffering from a strong vaginal odour. There was no discharge and I presumed it was vaginal vaginitis and tried various non-prescribed treatments that didn't really work.
The smell was so bad that it permeated not only my underclothes, but trousers as well and necessitated changing during the day. Obviously I was scrupulous about hygiene, but used to avoid standing near anyone at work, as I was sure other people could detect the smell. You might wonder why I didn't go to my GP. Well so do I ! Embarrassment I suppose.
Anyway, to cut to the chase, I am now on Avastin and this morning suddenly realised that I have not had this odour for months. I am wondering if OC can cause a smell. If so this is not anything I have read about. My mind is now going into overdrive and I am imagining OC sniffer dogs who can be trained to raise the alarm!
OK, perhaps it is purely a coincidence that this condition has now cleared, but I had to ask if this rang a bell with anyone else.
