    Unhappy What does this smell mean ??!!!!

    okay latley i have been noticing this really fowl smells from my vagina and i have no idea what could be the issue. i have no sores, no itching around my vagina. it does not burn when i urinate and i do not have any weird discoloration in my vaginal discharge (however it has been watery and holds a sicknening stentch). im so embarrassed to go see a gynocologist. i shower twice a day and i switched soaps to make sure that wasnt causing the issue but still the smell remains!!! its driving me crazy and i would really appreciate any type of of feedback. is this most likely an std or a bacterial infection ? some one please please help !!!!!!!

    You need to go to your doctor...going to the doctor should not be embarrassing! You cannot even imagine all the things they've seen in their careers! HA! It's what they are there for! You could search for symptoms of STDs on the web and see if anything matches the smell you are having. It isn't normal to have a strong odor so you really need to get it checked out.

    Hi it is possible it could be an infection. If it caused terrible menstrual pain I am sure a person would get over the embarrassment quick and just go get it taken care of. A naturopath specialist in this area might be helpful. Of course there are female specialists available now in case that is less embarrassing and one can check the ratings to see how good they are.

    I think I would at least do a warm water douche daily but not on the day one is seeing the specialist since it might not show on the test then. I would use plenty of citrus such as grapefruit, lemons, limes, oranges and also sweet pepper and potatoes with skins on for their vitamin C content. I would not bother with the artificial source of vitamin C since it might cause abnormal clotting.

    i'm going out on a limb here......have you eaten asparagus lately?
    that will give the urine a putrid smell, but it's completely normal.......if you've eaten asparagus.....

    OH yeah! You are right about that Rose!!!!! Does it smell like burning rubber when you urinate! I didn't think of that one! If I eat asparagus, within a half hour, my urine smells terrible and does for the entire day!

    It might be something like Bacterial Vaginosis. I have had that before and it does smell bad.
