Why do I smell like ammonia down there?
ANSWER #11 of 12

atomicreload, you are totally 100% normal. It often smells like chlorine other other sterile-smelling cleaning products as semen is alkaline and contains ammonia. This has something to do with helping your sperm live through it's journey to an egg as a vagina is more acidic than alkaline.

Period smell
ANSWER #12 of 12

I've heard of people saying their semen smells like bleach which is quite similar to the smell of chlorine. It really depends on what you eat, apparently if you eat more fruits the smell of it becomes different. The taste of semen also varies depending on what someone eats, it's not just the smell.
