after sex why does my vagina smell?

Secretions

Vulva
Depending on any chemicals used during sex (lubricants, etc) the smell is most likely just a "stirring" of the smells inside the vagina along with any ejaculate that may be present. Semen has a "smell" unto itself. If using a condom, they have their odor. If you are having a foul or offensive odor, perhaps you have a bacterial vaginosis. A fishy odor is usually BV.

My girlfriend's vagina smells like egg after sex?

Bacterial vaginosis

Open-uri20130510-26127-ry9eei
Bacterial vaginosis is the most common vaginal infection. It is an overgrowth of normal vaginal bacteria, not a sexually transmitted infection. When it mixes with blood or semen the pH gets elevated releasing the fishy odor. It is easily fixed with antibiotics. She wil need to be tested for other infections but this is the most likely.

My vagina smells like fish after sex. This is so embarrasing how can I prevent this?

Bacterial vaginosis

Stringio
Most likely you have BV, an overgrowth of vaginal bacteria that requires very specific prescription medication. Often, semen also can have a very distinct odor. Have him wear a condom to see if it helps. Also, see your healthcare provider if it doesn't resolve.

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

Vulva
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. Probiotics can help restore the natural flora and pH in your vagina. See your doc for more info.

Dr. John Petrozza answered:

Can there be something in sperm that makes my vagina smell different after sex?

Vaginal pH

Vagina
The vagina is very acidic, which is a nice environment for many healthy bacteria in the vagina. Seminal fluid is very basic, since it must alkalinize the vagina in order for sperm to survive. Some normal, and abnormal, vaginal bacteria will release an odor when the vaginal pH starts to alkalinize.
