In brief: Probably BV

Bacterial vaginosis is a common condition in women where the normal balance of bacteria in the vagina is disrupted and replaced by an overgrowth of certain bacteria.
Bv is not a sexually transmitted disease. It causes vaginal discharge that is usually white or gray. Most complain of a fish-like odor noticed especially after intercourse. It is treated with metronidazole.

Bv is a common condition that causes odor after sex.
A simple text can check for it. Some women find a vinegar and water douche helps as an alternative although we don't recommend regular douching. There is a product called rephresh that also helps by restoring the acidic ph of the vagina.
