In brief: Chemicals

The feminine safety wash may b the cause.
The vagina is a self cleaning organ & chemicals such as this r not only unnecessary but can cause problems by upsetting the normal balance.The most frequent result of this is bacterial vaginosis and the main symptom of BV is a strong odor.See your PCP or GYN to see if this is what is going on and get treated then stop using the vaginal safe wash.Just bathe
