Vaginitis: Certainly sex and condoms may cause a slight odor right after sex, but if its persistent i would make the assumption that it could be an infection. I would see your physician or gyn provider. Condoms by the way are only about 80% with long term use, meaning as many as 20% may get pregnant just using a condom. Might be a good time to discuss adding a birth control pill.
