In brief: BV
Bacterial vaginosis (bv) is the most common vaginal infection.
It is an overgrowth of normal vaginal bacteria, not a sexually transmit disease. The vaginal pH gets elevated releasing the fishy odor. It is easily fixed with antibiotics. Ask to be tested for bv. Other infections are possible so get tested.
