Is it normal that I like to smell my pads?

I rarely use pads. I normally use tampons, but I have a yeast infection and I'm using vagistat, so I have to use a pad so that the stuff doesn't get on my underwear. When I go to the bathroom I like to smell my pad when I'm done. Am I normal?

For those of you yapping about how bad "your" pads smell, maybe there's something wrong with you. Your pad shouldn't be so disgusting that it makes you gag. Maybe you're the one who needs to see a doctor about your womanly area. Bad hygiene, STD's and bacterial infections could be the cause of the foul odor that is making you gag. There's no need to criticize someone about something they like just because you don't. I think its very normal and mature to be able to discuss this without embarrassment.

people don't know why they do it, but it's your natural way of checking up on your own health. a different smell is an easy sign something's up, or going away. also the reason why everybody looks at their poop when they're done. nobody knows why they do it, but it's left-over instinct from when it was humans' method of self-diagnosis, and totally normal. NOT FUCKED UP!

I did that a couple times. I think it's my way of making sure that it smells normal. I like to smell the crotch of my underwear, too, for the same reason.

I think you guys are overreacting. The blood smells interesting. Sometimes I do it too. It's not like we're rubbing our faces in it or anything jeez!

Imagine when she looks in the mirror and wonder where the blood on her nose came from

Meh. To each her own.
I guess it'd be different if you were talking about pads in general. Now that would be really, really nasty.
I guess it's...semi-normal to have an urge to sniff something that comes out of your body...Maybe? Unless it's like shit or something.
Okay, even if it's gross, I somehow doubt it's uncommon.
I don't think it really matters if you sniff your OWN pads or not, but you probably shouldn't mention it to other people. You know, just in case it...scares them off or something. :P

I don't think it's so weird. It's a good way to keep tabs on your vaginal health - knowing your regular scent and occasionally checking it to make sure it hasn't changed. I sometimes sniff, more often when I'm not bleeding and I've done this ever since I began to have discharge. You shouldn't fear anything about yourself.

honey ..its 100% normal i do it and alot other people do it too its fine to want to smell whats coming out of ur body to make sure it smells ok .u read in gp leaflets that if ur dicharge has a funny smell then u need to get it cheked ....well how the fuk do u know wot it smells like if u dont sniff it ...its important to know wot it smells like cuz if oone time its smells bad then u can compare it to the noraml scent and tell if u need to go to ur gp .so all of u that are saying its wrong well i bet most of u have got some kind of infection and you dont even know! sniff on darlin

I think this is very normal. It's your body. Just like how people think it's normal to look at their poop, girls do this to make sure they are healthy. And, it's a curiosity thing. It's your scent, your hormones, your pheromones... Normal.

i think its kind of tabooish but on the flip side taboo has always been kind of a turn on to me
Comment Hidden (show)
I find the smell interesting, so long as the blood hasn't turned brown. I mean, that's sort of like smelling a steak that has been left in the sun. Many animals use their scents to identify themselves in social situations. As humans, before the invention of perfumes and deoderants probably did the same thing.. i mean not like sniff each other's butts or something. well who knows maybe prehistoric men ran around sniffing each other's butts. Guess we'll never know. I like the way my husband smells when he's sweaty. I like his brand of stink i guess.. its his chemistry. and i'm a believer of this because the scent of his cologne changes when he puts it on. He makes it smell better in my opinion.

So, point being.... yes, i think its normal.

I dont get it, guys smell and like the way females smell, i hear about it all the time! But is not okay for a girl to do it and thats including that its her body? Ive never done this but people should respect that other women are in one with their own body to love and be comfortable enought to do this! What the girls that can, and think is nasty im sure you have a reason why, its probly cuz you know all the nasty and random crap that goes in that black hole! :)

I also LOOOOOOOOVE sniffing my pads...

SO it must be sorta normal?
I'm also a lesbian :D maybe that adds to the pleasure of it lol

I think that you will be fine as long as you don't go around shouting it but it is a way to keep "in the know" about your health so as long as you don't re-use it or lick it you will probbably be fine.
Comment Hidden (show)
LMAO!!! Thanks for the good laugh. So yes I think it's very normal and probably healthy too.
Yes it's gross as hell to talk about! It's also funny as hell!
So let me explain. It's good you know there's a problem, and smell can tell us so much about the health of our "parts". I think that's why bad things in nature developed a stench, and we recognize it as a problem. The urge to smell is natural. It's a defense, so go ahead and sniff.
However please no nose touching, wash up very well afterward, and keep it to yourself.

Never thouht try it seems mankey but as long as ur only sniffing your own and not other peoples then it's not to wrong lmao
Comment Hidden (show)
its not abnormal to have a compulsion to do something like that. Sometimes we get curious about ourselves. Now, if it smells wrong or different than it normally does, you might not be cleaning yourself properly. I have never smelled anything when i change my pad or tampon, but then again, i try to keep myself as clean as possible. My boyfriend thanks me for it lol

Okay, maybe you just like to do that. As a bisexual teenager with mild autism, I learned not to Jude others by their actions or words.

I do it
Comment Hidden (show)
Well I don't take a huge whiff of it, but I kind of do it also so I get what you are saying. Personally, I've been told I have really good hygiene so maybe that's the reason the smell doesn't want to make us gag.

I dont think that is normal. Makes me want to puke thinking about it.

So, am I the only one who has sweet smelling blood? O.o

I catch my boyfriend rooting through the bin to smell mine. He likes to sniff things like eye sleep, ear wax, and when he picks pimples he sniffs the pus. Some people just do that instinctively, I guess you're one of those people.
Comment Hidden (show)
I think it's gross...I really don't think it's normal, but I don't think it's so un normal that you need to see a docter or anything, like some of the things I have seen on this site. But it isn't a normal thing that "everyone's doing" and it is quite gross..
Comment Hidden (show)
That's the reason why I hate pads, they stink like hell
Comment Hidden (show)
well i've smelled it while changing them, not intentinally sniffing... i cant stand blood, so the smell makes me want to gag, so does the sight, the thought of seeing it or smelling it....you get the picture. so it wouldn't be normal for me, but i guess it could be for you?

i like the word crotch!

Is it normal that my pad smells like period blood?
Comment Hidden (show)
Of course! It's natural to be curious about what comes out of your bodies- it's the closest you can get to understanding what's going in there without having an inside look.

I love my natural aroma and how it changes. =u=

Question: Why the Hell would you want to smell your uterine blood and excretions? You shed and smell.... that's pretty sick and abnormal. That's like a boy having his first wet dream, boiling the sheet he came on, and drinking the water it as boiled in. My comment, WTF.
Honestly, I get three days, no cramps, and be done with the nuisance. Why smell anything?
