See your doctor: You will need a pelvic exam and possibly cultures and other testing to diagnose your problem.

Bacterial Vaginosis: You probably have a vaginal infection caused by bacteria instead of the more common yeast infection. The most common symptom is a smelly vaginal discharge. It may look grayish white or yellow. A sign of bacterial vaginosis can be a "fishy" smell, which may be worse after sex. You need a pelvic exam - a smear can diagnose this infection and it's easy to treat with antibiotics.
