If it still smells after thorough cleaning in the shower, then you might have yeast infection. The vagina will always have a smell since it secretes liquids at all times, but it should not be very foul smelling to the point where you need to get rid of it. Try scented soaps.

You may need to go be examined by a GYN. Try douching with Vinegar and water such as Summer's Eve.

Wash with soap and water. I know everyone and their mother says that's bad, but it isn't. If you want to remove the odor, you have to use soap.

Do not use a store-bought douche - it will screw up your body's acid levels. I know they smell pretty, but they are more bad for you than good. If you want to try the vinegar douche that jjm recommended, then that's okay. I tried it and it did not work for me, but like most things, results likely vary from person to person.

And even if this is a yeast infection, it will go away eventually on its own. Count your blessings if you aren't itchy down there too, because that is the ultimate torture.

A fish smell can be from Bacterial Vaginosis. A Dr. would have to diagnose that. Try not to douche it can upset the normal flora of the vagina making it prone to infection. You can try eating daily yogurt, taking a folic acid supplement and a probiotic supplement if you like to see if any of it helps the vagina to smell less offensive.
