See your doctor: If you continue to notice odor and the beginning of other symptoms, such as discharge, you may be starting an infection. See your doctor to rule out a bladder or vaginal infection. Make sure to use the bathroom after sex and do not douche. Douching interrupts the normal balance of good flora in the vagina and can cause infection. You can also try condoms for a while to see if odor goes away. ...Read more

My 6 month old daughter has foul odor coming from her urine.... Her vagina also smells fishy. The urine smells like ammonia.. She only drinks milk?

Possible UTI: This is frequently the only symptom of a urinary infection in babies so you need to get a urinalysis done. Her pediatrician or her/his nurse can apply a urine bag. Will need a catheterized or supra-pubic specimen for culture if positive. On the other hand, but less likely, smell might be from uninfected urine or vagina if she inadvertently pushed a little stool or something else up her vagina. ...Read more

Vagina secretes a milky fluid and it smells. This scent is being smelled after every sex I have with my partner. How do I need to stop this bad odor?

Vagina secretes a milky fluid and it smells. This scent is being smelled after every sex I have with my partner. How do I need to stop this bad odor?

Abnormal bacteria: Sounds like bacterial vaginosis: an overgrowth of the wrong bacteria and a deficiency of the good bacteria that defend the vagina and keep the correct ph balance. This leads to a bad odor that is typically "fishy" smelling. It is not usually related to an std. It responds to some antibiotics, but it often recurs. Metronidazole or Clindamycin are the best Rx. Vaginal probiotics may help too. ...Read more

60 yrs old my vagina is raw and bleeding from inserting (1) ultra 25 probiotic capsule gor fishy odor?

60 yrs old my  vagina is raw and bleeding from inserting (1) ultra 25 probiotic capsule gor fishy odor?

Ouch!: That sounds painful. You may want to talk to dr and treat possible BV with oral Metronidazole given how tender vagina is. You can also try probiotic orally. Cream for vulva & vagina may be warranted. Need an exam to make sure no lesion as cause of bleeding, barring that, try some desitin (zinc oxide diaper cream) on vulva (not in vagina) if vulva raw. Otherwise, maybe dr. Will give you some estrogen cream to help heal. ...Read more

Well I have this odor from my vagina and i had it for about three years, i don't itch or burn but the odor isn't fishy, i haven't had a white discharge?

Could be normal: All vaginas have a smell. Vaginas are the ph of glass of wine or cup of coffee. A fishy odor implies an elevated ph. Without an exam, it's possible that the odor of your vagina is normal. Testing the ph would be a good indicator as to whether or not it's normal. Normal is 3.8-4.5. It's also normal to have discharge every day. See a doctor if you're worried and ask them to check ph. ...Read more
