Infection: It sounds like you have a bacterial infection called Bacterial Vaginosis. It's not a sexual transmitted infection and is easily treated with antibiotics. It's due to an alteration in the normal vaginal flora which causes the vaginal PH to rise. This may produce a discharge with a 'fishy' odor. See your doctor for treatment.
