No, a fish like odor: Is not a sign of pregnancy. If you have a change in color, texture, odor or amount of vaginal discharge ; problems such as pain, itching burning with urination or sex or redness/swelling then it is best to see your gynecologist for evaluation ; accurate assessment.

Probably not: Its more likely that the fish smell is caused by a condition called bacterial vaginosis. This is not an STD. Its an overgrowth of a certain type of bacteria that just happen to produce a bit of a discharge and a fishy odor. Its treated with antibiotics. Best wishes!

Vaginal odor: There are many possibilities for a vaginal odor but most likely it is caused by a vaginal infection. A visit to the gynecologist or her family practice doctor can easily solve the issue - there are tests that can be done in the office to determine what type of infection it is and a treatment can be prescribed. Also, a lost or forgotten tampon or condom can cause an unpleasant vaginal odor.
