In brief: There

There are many causes of vaginal odor. You are correct that yeast infections are one of the common causes.
Other infections can as well, especially one called bacterial vaginosis, which tends to cause a fishy odor along with a vaginal discharge(yellow/green/white thin fluid from the vagina). I would recommend seeing your family phyisician or an obgyn to have a vaginal exam and be tested for all the different infections that can cause an odor. If they rule out all the different infections, then they can suggest some ideas for taking care of the odor naturally.
