See doctor for meds: A vaginal discharge is anything coming from the vagina that is more than the scant amount of normal mucous that healthy women have. A discharge that has odor is usually an infection with germs such as bacteria, trichomonas, gonorrhea or chlamydia (discharge gets worse as infection gets worse). A woman with a discharge should see her doctor for an exam & medication. Avoid sex until after treatment.

Bacterial vaginosis can also be a cause. I agree, see a Dr. Also consider having your partner checked and treated.

Infection? BV? STD?: Vaginal discharge with foul odor (often fishy) usually is bacterial vaginosis, overgrowth of mostly normal bacteria. The odor often is especially noticeable after sex. Trichomonas, an STD, can cause similar odor and discharge. Gonorrhea and chlamydia are possible, and both are more common in women with BV. Get medical care ASAP for diagnosis, testing, and treatment. Good luck!
