Should girls use scented or unscented pads and tampons?
Unscented is best because the chemicals used in scented products
can cause irritation. Also, there's no need to mask the natural odors that happen.
In most cases, any odor is mild and not offensive. If you do notice a smell that seems
wrong or bad to you, you might want to talk to your doctor
about it. Some odors are signs of infections.
