I'm on birth control and since I stopped getting a period my vagina smells different? (Not bad like fishy or anything). What do I do?

Odor and Infection

Vagina
A change in odor of the vagina could be related to many things. However, if you are concerned as it seems you are get it checked by you doctor. Sometimes douches can cause a change in vaginal odor. Sometimes a change in smell is related to an infection that is not associated with a fishy smell.

One week before period, tired, grumpy, frequent urination, lower back pain, light cramping, thirsty, headaches, increase in smells. Am I pregnant?

Once again..........

Pregnant
This question gets asked over and over again and no one seems to understand that you need to miss a period first. Then you need to do a home pregnancy test to know for certain.

Discharge smells like cottage cheese & I can smell it even while sitting.Feels like my period is on & looks yellowish but isn't thick. What's this?

Vaginal discharge

Menses
Vaginal discharge requires an examination to determine the cause and treatment. Bacterial vaginosis is the most common cause and often has a vaginal odor. Vaginal itching can be a sign of a yeast infection. Sometimes vaginal discharge can be a sign of a sexual transmitted infection. Testing is important to determine the treatment and keep you and your partner safe

Dr. Jane Van Dis answered:

Why does my vagina smells after my period?

Old blood

Menstrual_period
Sometimes a vagina can smell funny after menstruation due to old blood in the uterus/vagina. If it happens every cycle, then likely isn't infection, but if happens other times, then you may want to be evaluated to rule out bacterial vaginosis as cause. Not much to be done. Can consider a gentle vinegar douch if it bothers you. Best wishes.

what does it mean if i have brown discharge a day after my period and it smells bad?

Usually Normal

Menstrual_cycle
This is usually just a mixture of old blood from your period mixed with normal vaginal mucous, nothing to be alarmed about. If it continues more than a week then see your Doctor to rule out bacterial vaginosis.
