What does it mean if im a clea person but my vagina smells funny and it burns after sex? Same partner for 2 years

A couple of things: This could be bacterial vaginosis and/or trichomoniasis. Bacterial vaginosis is caused by a bacterial infection in your vagina and presents with odor. Trichomoniasis is caused by a protozoan and presents with burning but not much odor. These are less about hygiene and more about vaginal ph.

Recheck with your doctor to check for BV, and maybe also the newer DNA test for trichomonas. Good luck! ...Read more
