May need re-evaluati: If the odor is unpleasant it could be from stress related sweating, poor hygiene or BV in addition to stds. If it is still present then you could seek re-evalation and cultures.

? odor: It depends on the odor you had or have. If the odor resolved and there are no symptoms then it was likely a physiological discharge- which is a discharge with no infectious cause. If odor is persistent then i recommend recheck.
