In brief: Wrong antibiotic
Bacterial vaginosis (bv) is the most common vaginal infection.
It is an overgrowth of normal vaginal bacteria, not a sexually transmittthesis ease. The vaginal pH gets elevated releasing the fishy odor. It is easily fixed with antibiotics but Amoxicillin is not one of them that will work. Metronidazole or clindamhcin would be better choices. Ask to be tested for bv.
