In brief: Dr. can evaluate
A fishy smell coming from the vagina could be a sign of an infection called bacterial vaginosis.
It can be treated with antibiotics that a doctor can prescribe. In addition, other sexually transmitted infections can also cause a discharge. Best to see your ob/gyn or family doctor for a full evaluation and definitive diagnosis.
