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

My vagina smells like hot garbage please help me?

INFECTION: You probably have a vaginal infection called 'bacterial vaginosis'. It is caused by an overgrowth of your own (anaerobic) vaginal bacteria.
