In brief: May need antibiotcs

The most common cause of vaginal odor is a common condition called bacterial vaginosis.
It is not an std as virginal women may have it as well. This requires an examination, and antibiotics to treat. Also, some stds may present with vaginal odor, like trichomoiasis. This is quite different than bv. All would agree that vaginal douching is not a good idea, and may make certain infections worse.
