Bacterial vaginosis: 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. You wil need to be tested for other infections but this is the most likely.

Heavy periods: There are multiple options. Hormonal treatments such as birth control pills, Progesterone treatments and the Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud are effective reversible treatments that will help many people. There is also a drug called Lysteda that contains no hormones which will help others. If you are done having children discuss the option of an endometrial ablation. In some cases a hysterectomy will be needed.
