Re: How can you get rid of a fishy smell from the vagina?

You probably can't do it yourself. A little bit of scent is normal, but a pronounced and prolonged "fishy" smell is most likely a sign of Bacterial Vaginosis (BV), a bacterial infection of the vagina.

BV isn't a big deal, it is super common, and it isn't usually caused by sex. You get BV when your vagina's natural bacterial balance gets out of whack - which can be caused by almost anything - including using a new type of soap or laundry detergent, a new sexual partner, douching, and a ton of other things!

Since it is a bacterial infection, it will not go away on its own, you need to see a doctor and get a prescription. Once you do that, it should clear up pretty quickly.

Good luck!
