Bacterial vaginosis.

Try taking some vitamin C.

Re: strong metallic vaginal odor

It definitely does sound like bacterial vaginosis, but you'll need an antibiotic to get rid of it if that's what it is. A trip to the doctor is probably your best bet. Vitamin C will help your symptoms, but not cure the cause.
