Vaginal odour off for a yr. If I use cup or tampon, sickly sweet odour unlike normal menstrual blood. Use IUD and pills, have sex. Sometimes itches?

In brief: Sounds like BV

There are several causes of vaginal odor. You will need to see your doctor for testing.
The most likely is bacterial vaginosis. Bacterial vaginosis is an overgrowth of normal vaginal bacteria. The only real way to fix it is with antibiotics. Trichomoniasis is an STD that can cause odor and itching. Schedule a visit for an exam to determine the cause and treatment
