Change in body odour ?

Posted , 8 users are following.

hello! has anyone experienced a change in body odour during peri ? im 42 and think im a couple of years into this, and recently ive been waking up and smelling my pjs and thinking i must have put my husbands on - because they smell like a man !? not pleasant, but compared to other symptoms not a big deal - im just having to double up on deodorant! - interesting though, anyone else experienced this ? im still getting periods but they are lighter, clottier and browner - so not sure what stage im at!

    When I was at that stage my deodorant starting failing and I couldn't find one that worked!

    It's gotten better though. It's like going thru puberty all over again.

    When I saw this one doctor and was telling him all about how sick I was, he said to me, "you sound like my teen patients".

    I noticed it as well. Doubled up on deodorant and that helped. I have noticed my hair gets greasy and is very wavy again - just like it was during puberty.

    This happened to me too. Strong underarm body odor, no matter what type of deodorant I used! But, it eventually passed. No more strong BO. I just use my regular deodorant and all is fine now.
