Not cysts.: Cysts on our ovaries will not cause vaginal odor. Diet and medications, prescription or over-the-counter and supplements can affect the odor/taste of sweat, urine, stool, saliva and vaginal secretions. Keep a diary of your food and drink intake, and see if the odor changes with a certain food or drink. Otherwise, get a second opinion.
