The basics: When you have a discharge with a fishy smell it is evidence that the moist tissues within your vagina have been invaded by a germ or parasite. The process is labeled a vaginitis. To sort out the cause and treatment you need to have the discharge examined (office procedure) during an office visit. It is not an emergency but unlikely to self heal. You should seek care at your convenience.
