Exclamation ***How long does vaginal odor after sex last?***

I've been tested for STDs and such, but after my boyfriend ejaculates inside of me, my vagina starts to smell a couple hours later. The fishy odor is more pungent when we have sex multiple times in a short period of time (he usually ejaculates every time). I've heard that semen starts to smell after a while, but this smell is so strong and it lasts for days! sometimes almost a week even though I shower everyday! Does anybody have any advice or similar experiences? Should I go see a doctor or is this completely normal? I don't have any itching or thick discharge.. I can't seem to find an answer anywhere and this smell is really embarassing.. I'd appreciate any input, thanks.

No, a fishy odor after sex, especially one that lasts for days, is not normal. That usually signals some sort of infection, like bacterial vaginosis. You need to see a doctor for diagnosis and treatment

WOW......i just posted about the same thing. i just found out i have BV, which is an infection, not yeast infection, but a bacteria infection. i have a horrible odor after sex too. sometimes for a week! i couldn't figure this out?? go to the doc, this is treatable. the only thing about this infection, it can keep coming back! my doc said, that this cannot be passed back and forth, im not sure i believe that! there is a long post about this in womens health.......read it....it's interesting!

Could it be his semen? That stuff can smell pretty bad after a while, and differently for different guys. (Another reason to use condoms. )

I really appreciate all the responses, they were helpful. I was just wondering if it is BV if I ONLY get the smell after sex, so no sex, no smell. Also, I don't have any thick discharge (liquidy and alot of it sometimes) or itching. Thanks anyway.. I suppose I'll go see a doctor.

you can't only get the smell after sex...it's just stronger right after sex. Thats why you notice it alot. Believe me, the smell will stay until it is treated! And yes, BV can be passed back and forth. It doesn't always happen, but it can. Good luck!

So thank you all for your responses, the doctor prescribed an antibiotic, this is my third day on it and my BV appears to be gone. Thanks!
