Sweet smelling/no smell vaginal discharge. white, pasty. not a lot but enough to notice. accompanies mild itching. seems to be worse around period?

Probably yeast

Itch
Yeast infections are pretty common problems, and easily diagnosed at your gyn or PCPs office. They typically are a thick white discharge and have itching associated with it. To confirm the cause of infection your physician will usually take a small sample of the discharge and look at it under the microscope with a potassium hydroxide solution. Confirm it with your doc.

Bacterial Vaginosis

Most common cause of a fishy vaginal discharge is Bacterial Vaginosis. It is not an STD; it is similar to a yeast infection. It is the most common abnormal vaginal discharge. Other cause can be an STD called Trichomonas. Douching, recent increase in sexual frequency, or recent antibiotics/antifungal medication can increase one's changes, but it often occurs for "no reason". You need a rx to treat

What causes fishy foul smelling vaginal discharge odor?

Bacterial vaginosis

Vaginal_discharge
The most common symptom of BV is an abnormal off-white vaginal discharge (especially after vaginal intercourse) that may be accompanied by an unpleasant (usually fishy) smell. This malodorous discharge coats the walls of the vagina, and is usually without significant irritation, pain, or erythema (redness), although mild itching can sometimes occur. Treatment is with antibiotics.

Should I speak to a doctor about odd smelling vaginal discharge?

Yes

Vaginal_infections
Any abnormal odor should be evaluated. This is most often seen with a bacterial vaginal infection called gardnarella vaginalis. It can be treated and cured quickly. Other causes are lost tampons, necrosing cervical lesions as seen in cancers. See your doctor and be examined.

Prescription drug

Sounds like "bacterial vaginosis", an overghrowth of bacteria in the vagina. Can be treated with a prescription drug like Vandazole or Metrogel. There is also an oral form of the drug if you prefer. See your health care provider..

Dr. Douglas Lawson answered:

What causes terrible smelling brown vaginal discharge for at least three days after each period ?

Infection possible

Vaginal_discharge
Because of the foul odor, you should probably be seen to rule out infection. If you are a tampon user and leave it in for prolonged periods of time, this can also cause odor. Some slight odor around the period may be normal.
