Bacterial overgrowth: Sewage is a new one for me. Usually dead fish, asset the risk of being politically incorrect. The odor is produced by amines emitted by the anaerobic (non oxygen consuming) bacteria that tend to overgrow when the vaginal environment ph is high or basic. The replace the"good" bacteria, lactobacillus. This happens with sex and around a woman's period. Treatment is easy but recurrence is common. ...Read more

?orgasm: If it only occurs when you are aroused and smells like "sex but 10x stronger, " maybe you are having a small orgasm and you are smelling your orgasmic discharge? If it is foul smelling, get checked for an infection by your dr. Good luck. ...Read more

INFECTION: You probably have a vaginal infection called 'bacterial vaginosis'. It is caused by an overgrowth of your own (anaerobic) vaginal bacteria. You should get checked for this infection and get other infections ruled out (gc/chlamydia/trich/yeast). A simple oral antibiotic will cure this major nuisance. Hope you better soon! ...Read more

Needs testing: If you're having an abnormal discharge, it needs to be examined and or tested. Especially since you recently had a surgery. It's possible you have a common infection like bacterial vaginosis, although classically its described as a fishy order. The recent surgery would make me want to make sure nothing more serious is going on inside. Good luck and be well. ...Read more
