Taking oral progesterone due to 2 miscarriages. Last period on 7/6. Ovulated & started progesterone 7/24. Sense of smell very strong and sore breasts?
Ouch!: The symptoms you are experiencing are likely d/t the Progesterone- remember the breast swelling just before your period? Prog levels are the highest then; and that is part of its function, to also enrich the uterus to sustain pregnancy. First, let me empathize, my wife took Prog to maintain her pregnancy (our only one!) Also, you may get pregnant underneath this, so much the better! Good Luck! ...Read more
I don't have a fishy smell but it is a strong blood like smell during my ovulation. But not so much during my period.
Bacterial vaginosis?: Odor is very subjective. One person's "fishy" might be another's "blood like". Any strong, noticeable vaginal odor suggests bacterial vaginosis, an overgrown of vaginal bacteria. And BV is associated with elevated risk of STDs like gonorrhea and chlamydia. So don't take chances with this: maybe everything is OK, but better safe than sorry. See a doctor soon. ...Read more

What causes Odd smell in women during sex? And how do I make it go away.? Dome people call it fishy smell
Bacterial vaginosis: Bacterial vaginosis is the main cause of increased vaginal odor. BV is an overgrowth of mostly normal bacteria. The odor often is fishy and most common during or after sex. Trichomonas, an STD, causes the same odor, and BV sometimes goes along with gonorrhea or chlamydia. See a doctor; it should be easy to diagnose and treat, but needs a prescription antibiotic. Discuss STD testing as well. Good luck. ...Read more
Fishy smell during sex, not after or before, it's worse if I have a bath or shower right before. What is this?
Married 10yrs recently had uti that was treated. Only during sex there's a fishy smell, 2 times. What could cause this? No smell unless sex.
Typical BV symptoms: The main cause of strong vaginal odor is bacterial vaginosis, an overgrowth of mostly normal bacteria. The odor is often fishy and especially noticeable after sex. Trichomonas, an STD, is possible (if at risk). UTI antibiotics can trigger BV by suppressing protective bacteria. It is easily treated with metronidazole. See your doctor (preferably gyn) for diagnosis and treatment advice. Good luck! ...Read more

My husband has really terrible teeth. I notice that after oral sex, during and right after intercourse I have a "fishy" smell. Could it be his teeth?
Possibly, but rare: Despite transmission of oral bacteria during cunnilingus your husband's bacterial load in the mouth would have to be off the charts for you to smell a "fishy" odor. And his breath would have to be chronically putrid for that to happen. You may want to rule out any issues with yourself by seeing your ob/gyn first. Then when you are given a clean bill of health send your husband to the dentist. ...Read more
