In brief: Infection? BV? STD?

The main discharge with foul odor (often fishy) is bacterial vaginosis, an overgrowth of mostly normal bacteria.
Trichomonas, an STD, causes similar odor and discharge. Also, gonorrhea and chlamydia are possible, and more common in women with BV. Your chosen topic tags show STDs are on your mind, so you're probably at risk. Get medical care ASAP for diagnosis, testing, and treatment. Good luck!
