What if my cervical cap is starting to smell?
updated about 4 years ago

This can happen if you’ve left it in more than 48 hours.

Try this: Rinse it thoroughly and let it dry. If the odor sticks around, you may want to get checked for a condition called bacterial vaginosis (a condition that can cause that bad-smelling discharge).
