I agree with the last poster who said you and the BF must never let your girlfriend know of your conversations about her. That would certainly crush her, and potentially ruin all of your relationships.

If you are her loving and caring boyfriend, you should be the one to discuss this, and help her with it. As awful as it sounds, the lost tampon (or other foreign object/lost condom) idea makes the most sense to me. I am a mature woman, and it is not as unusual as you might think. In my lifetime of experience, this is the first thing to check.

This may sound crass, but simply get in the shower, put on a glove and go in there and get it out for her. It's not that big of a deal. Be the man, and take care of your woman. Don't act shocked or grossed out or anything.

If you can find it, you will save your girlfriend of any embarrassment, and if not, it will open the door for the next step, which would be to take her to the doctor. That means take her, sit with her, wait for her, and support her.

Trust me, doctor's see this kind of thing everyday, and it should be dealt with openly and frankly...it is not that big of a deal. Jump in there and be the hero...Good luck!
I couldn't have said it better myself. Now that I think about it, it would probably really effect her if you and her BF talked about her this way. Writeleft and Ksavage are right about that.

All good ideas for breaking the "news" to her, but it will be a very difficult to do without making her feel awful. Maybe that is inevitable though because either way it will end in tears. I have tried small things like pretending to rest my head on her lap while holding my breath, and then suddenly moving away while "sniffing" the air and looking slightly disgusted, hoping that she would notice and be left wondering about her hygiene. Girls notice stuff like that, right? Hasn't seemed to work though and I can't bring myself to enlighten her anymore directly than that.

Good point about the doctor, maybe she didn't even go! I mean I didn't actually witness the "inspection". Maybe I can accompany her next time...somehow? But that's kinda creepy...

I know for a fact that I am not the only one that can smell her. I have had numerous conversations with her female best friend who is also a good friend of mine, and we are both out of ideas.

I guess you are right AnnD, I need to tell her no matter what the consequence, so I can get out of this prison of sexual funk I have found myself in.
Sort it out man, just be straight up with her. "Look sweety, there's an awful smell coming from between your legs, is there any reason why?"
You need to say this to clarify that it is unnacceptable to have a remarkably smelly vagina. If she has a problem with this, she should perhaps harden up.
Cheers,
Mikel

Re: HELP! What is wrong with her vagina?

Brown/red stained underwear is just part of being a woman, and if you are intimate with one, you're going to see it. Vaginas ooze menstrual fluid, sometimes suddenly and without warning. Unless you're very lucky and very observant and on something like birth control that can regulate your cycle to a day, it's impossible not to stain your underwear, because even if you're there on the first day of your period with a pad or tampon, you can get hit by the dreaded spotting at any time. When women are dating they usually take care to wear nice, clean panties, but I bet you anything they've got stained ones in their drawer at home. It's natural that she wouldn't be embarassed by leaving her stained panties around if she trusts you, because to her that's completely normal.

In the original post, AU man asked if stained panties were related to the smell. I was trying to explain that no, they're a common and normal item in a woman's life. By the description, I'm wondering if perhaps she was using pads instead of tampons and what he was smelling was her menstrual fluid, which he just wasn't used to.
