Bacterial vaginosis: Vaginal odor is often caused by BV. Bacterial vaginosis is the most common vaginal infection. It is an overgrowth of normal vaginal bacteria, not a sexually transmitted infection. When it mixes with blood or semen the ph gets elevated releasing the fishy odor. It is easily fixed with antibiotics. You can do a virtual visit today for treatment
