This should be easy to diagnose and treat; see your doctor soon. ...Read more

2nd opinion needed: Your wife needs to see a GYN MD for a 2nd opinion as we almost never advocate the use of a commercial douching product for an abnormal odor from the vagina. An assessment for a vaginal infection will be done first and foremost as douching can actually cause more harm to the vaginal pH sometimes worsening the presumptive bacterial infection. ...Read more

I have a smell coming from my vagina an it won't stay dry sometimes itchy some discharge I always have a smell coming from my privates and I have notice it won't stay dry

The: The most common reason for bad smelling discharge in a woman in a monogamous relationship is bacterial vaginosis (bv). Bv is not a sexually transmitted disease, but is an imbalance between the "good" and "bad" bacterial that normally live in the vagina. Douching and having sex can put you at risk since both activities cause a change in the vaginal environment leading to an overgrowth of "bad" bacteria. Many women will complain of a fishy odor, increased discharge and a few may even have itching and discomfort. You should give your doctor a call to see if you have bv. The doctor can test your vaginal discharge to know for certain whether you have it or not. Bv is typically treated with a short course of antibiotics.

If you are sexually active, there is a chance you could have a sexually transmitted disease such as gonorrhea, chlamydia, or trichamonas. Based on your history, your doctor may test you for these, also. ...Read more
