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.
