Vaginal Odor After Sex
Seem to have a lot of white discharge lately. Vaginal odor present during/after sex, esp. on days I don't shower right b4 sex w/ my bf. Worry or no?
I have very strong vaginal odor for several weeks after sex with new partner. Think it is BV. Are there severe risks in not going to dr immediately?
No: BV is indeed likely. As long as you are not pregnant or planning vaginal surgery in the near future the are no severe risks to delaying treatment. Back has been shown to increase the risk of premature delivery, premature rupture of membranes, and infections after pelvic surgery. It will not go away by itself so you do need to get it checked out and treated at some point though. ...Read more
I only have this fishy vaginal odor durinh sex. Before & after that its gone. Its all start when im started taking oral contraceptive pills?
Strong persistent vaginal odor that has lasted at least 1 month after a lot of unsafe sex with new partner. Even worse after sex. What could it be?
Having a vaginal odor for sometime used products to get rid of it but it came back after sex now I'm bleeding a little after sex odor still continues?

It sounds like you may have bacterial vaginosis, which is not so much an infection as it is an imbalance in the normal bacterial flora of the vagina. You may need a round of antibiotics to supress the abnormal bacteria, and doing probiotics, like eating yogurt, can replenish the normal bacteria. ...Read more
Vaginal odor from frequent sex how do you get rid of it to enjoy your partner sex as much as twice a day
Do : Do not assume the vaginal odor is from frequent sex. Vaginal odor may be a sign of infection(yeast, bacteria, std), or even a foreign body lodged in the vagina (i.e. Tampons) can be the caused. I know that may sound shocking, but you would be surprised how many foreign bodies I have found in the vagina after a patient complained of vaginal odor. You should schedule a visit with your primary care doctor or gynecologist for an evaluation and testing in order to determine the cause of your problem and provide treatment. Hopefully this will alleviate the odor. If nothing is found and the odor persists, try taking a bath instead of a shower after intercourse, you can add a liittle vinegar to the water which may help. Good luck. ...Read more
