    Hello,please may I ask some questions 1.does this happen after every episode of sex or is this the first time this is happening.? Do you have any discharge that is abnormal. Do you douche? Do you practice safe sex? Please, I await your answers.

    Ok..thank you for the answers.it's quite possible it's the cause of the smell. Ideally, best thing to do is to get to a lab and get a high vaginal swab done. this can be used for testing for bacterial vaginosis and sexually transmitted diseases While I appreciate the fact that you trust your partner ,I will always advise safe sex. Stop douching if you do. Avoid use of vaginal deodorants or bubble baths if you do. I strongly suspect this is bacterial vaginosis but I can't completely rule out an STD. While bacterial diagnosis is not a sexually transmitted disease,research shows that having sex generally predisposed women to it. Unfortunately I can't prescribe antibiotics on this platform but you will likely need the tests I mentioned above.

    Douching means washing the inside of your vagina with anything even including water. There sI no need to this sa the vaginva is fully capable of cleaning itself.Douching is a well knownn cause of bacterial vaginosis(abnormal discharge with rotten fish or meat Smell)
