In brief: Odor and Infection

A change in odor of the vagina could be related to many things.
However, if you are concerned as it seems you are get it checked by you doctor. Sometimes douches can cause a change in vaginal odor. Sometimes a change in smell is related to an infection that is not associated with a fishy smell.
