Why does my vaginal juices have a very strong smell? During sexual activity I have a very strong smell, vaginally. I do not have any infections or diseases (i have been checked). Why would this be?

If : If you are using any lubricants or condoms this may be what you are smelling. Otherwise if you are having unprotected sex then it may be coming from your partner. You should probably follow up again and make sure you are not dealing with bacterial vaginosis (bv). This is a common cause of vaginal odor. Good luck.

Can a vaginal year infection go away on it's own?

Wound infection: Would not attempt this. You are playing with fire and there is a very good likelihood that the infection can spread and destroy tissues and be life-threatening. Go and see your doctor and have this treated appropriately before you really become sick. Good luck.

Detox from what?: If you mean "cleansing" regimens with diet, juices, fasting, enemas and the like, my opinion is a definite no. Vaginal odors are generally from lack of the "good" bacteria that inhabit the vagina and overgrowth of "bad" bacteria. Your gyn provider can help advise you about use of probiotics that might restore the balance, treat any possible infections, and advise you about safe products to help.

What is a vaginal mixed infection and what are the treatments for both partners?

Too vague: "mixed vaginal infection" is not a standard recognized diagnosis, so it could mean absolutely anything and may mean nothing. Without more specific information no treatment can or should be prescribed.
