Arrow sour tasting vaginal discharge???

My boyfriend recently informed me (don't know how it came into the convo) that my vagina has a somewhat sour taste to it. So -please don't get grossed out- I tasted it myself and it is rather bitter. No other sexual partner has ever mentioned this, and they seemed to enjoy going down on me. So I'm wondering, could this be a sign of an STD? I was examined about 6 months ago, since then only had one other partner before my current boyfriend - so I don't have any reason to think I am at risk, except for the taste. No other symptoms really. Any explanations/ advice would be appreciated. Thanks!

We can taste different at different times of the month.....this is normal. We can taste sweet, salty, sour etc. As long as there isnt a foul odor......then i wouldnt worry.

Re: sour tasting vaginal discharge???

I think our taste can be affected by what we eat, what time of the month it is, etc. Did he say that it was always bitter, or just that particular time? I'm not necessarily sure that an STD can cause a bitter taste; I've never heard of that before. Sorry I can't be of more help.

I don't have anything to compare myself to...thank goodness...haha...but any time I've ever tasted myself on my BF, it was kind of a sour/tart taste but not bitter.
I tells it likes a sees it

Type's of food you eat does play a role in taste as well. Tart or sour is totally normal............Only be concerned if there is a foul odor, or strange discharge..........itching etc.
