Vaginal discharge: You may have either a bacterial or fungal infection of your vagina. See your gynecologist for cultures to determine the cause.

Did u really taste: It? To confirm or make a diagnosis, you need to be examined by a dr and get checked for vaginal infection. If u r just concerned by the odor, u can try douching.Take care! http://video.Search.Yahoo.Com/video/play?P=vaginal+douching&tnr=21.

Just get tested: Vaginal discharge requires an examination to determine the cause and treatment. Bacterial vaginosis is the most common cause and often has a vaginal odor. Vaginal itching can be a sign of a yeast infection. Sometimes vaginal discharge can be a sign of a sexual transmitted infection. Testing is important to determine the treatment and keep you and your partner safe.

Maybe : It is hard to assess vaginal discharge when someone is on their menstrual cycle. You could compare what you're experiencing now to the menstrual cycles you have had in the past. If this is not normal for you then you can schedule a visit for a evaluation.
