Avatar_f_tn I took pics and called gyno. She said she's not worried bout it. Now I have an icky smell and it smells like cat litter. I don't use soap but use warm water. It's pretty strong I change my panty liners every 4 hrs or so. I took 2 pregnancy test and nothing. Not a negative or a positive. My urine has a strong odor to it and is extremely dark. I know I don't drink water because I don't it has no taste. Should I seek out another gyno?

Avatar_f_tn For some time now I've noticed some vaginal smells and this conserns me deeply. How do I solve this problem?
Avatar_f_tn Treatment is by metronidazole((Flagyl, MetroGel) and clindamycin (Cleocin).They are available as pills or vaginal gels or creams. Please do not use any vaginal douches. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
Avatar_f_tn Taking certain brands of birth control pills and/or an antibiotic may trigger overgrowth of the fungus, Candida albicans, which is normally present in the vagina. The symptoms of a vaginal yeast infection are itching, irritation, and redness around the vagina and thick white vaginal discharge . Treatment for the vaginal problem depends on the cause. Bacterial infections are treated with antibiotics. Fungal infections are treated with antifungal medicines.

5030159_tn?1362741177 Hi there and welcome. I assume you are talking about vaginal odor. Well, in truth, the best thing to do is go see your doctor. If it is a strong, bad odor--- you very well could have bacterial vaginosis which needs to be treated with medication. Lots of women get this, so no big deal, but it does need to be treated. Do you have a discharge as well. Never ever douch as that makes things worse!

Avatar_n_tn You didn't say what kind of smell you were having. Semen has a distinctive smell anyway. In general, smells like bleach result from the ammonias already in the sperm and aren't a problem. A fisy odor can come from a bacterial infection. This can be from the woman or the man. If this odor is noticed after sex, then it can be from the woman, which can be a normal vaginal odor due to the presence of lactobaxillus normally secreted in the vagina.
Avatar_f_tn Fungal infections, STIs, bacterial infections are few common causes of foul smelling vaginal discharge. Other common causes of foul smell are calculus, tooth decay, cavities, gum disease, acid reflux, respiratory tract infections, chronic bronchitis and post nasal drip .See a doctor for clinical examination. Keep me posted on how you are doing. Best luck and regards!
Avatar_n_tn There are several possible causes of vaginal discharge with odor. The two most common are bacterial vaginosis and trichomonas, but many other problems can do it as well. You defintely should see your health care provider. Just tell the receptionist you want a check-up for vaginal discharge with odor.
Avatar_n_tn I would have it checked out to make sure it isn't some sort of vaginal infection. Typically a doctor would want to know if discharge has a smell to it. Good luck!
Avatar_f_tn My husband's semen smells absolutely horrible. What can be causing this problem? Is it an STD?
Avatar_m_tn Type your medical question hereHello, Going by your symptoms, it looks like bacterial vaginosis to me. It is the most common cause of abnormal vaginal odor and discharge. It is caused by a change in the type of bacteria found in the vagina. In addition to unpleasant "fishy" vaginal odor, thin white or yellowish discharge from vagina may also be present. Diagnosis can be confirmed after pelvic examination and microscopic examination of the vaginal discharge.
Avatar_n_tn o my whole life despite being someone who is very cleanly and lives a fairly healthy lifestyle. I noticed a daily oniony vaginal smell a few years ago when in college, and I was absolutely devastated. I've gone to gynecologists, I've done research, and I recently discovered a blog called Case of the Onions that has virtually saved me life! It's astounding how many other women have the same issue! I'd previously tried chlorophyll (liquid and pill form.
Avatar_n_tn I adopted my dog roughly 9 months ago from a shelter and she had already been spayed. Throughout our time together she tends to lick her vaginal area from time to time and originally I wasn't bothered by it...but now she does it more frequently. Whenever she does it she smells like tin afterward and there is usually a small discharge left behind. I am going to bring her into the vet soon, but do you have any idea what it might be?
Avatar_f_tn when it's really hot and i'm sweaty, it smells like armpit odor. i remember way before that i got checked and the doctor said i had this slight urinary tract infection and gave me meds and then i had dark urine. it's gone for a while but it was back again. i did my research and i saw that vaginal secretions were okay and a way to cleanse.
Avatar_f_tn Why would it smell like urine inside me? I usually don't have vaginal odor at all. Before we had sex I smelled my underwear just to check to see if all was normal, and it smelled fine, just as it always has (kinda sweet). I have no itching, burning, pain, I feel fine down there. Is it possible that this smell happened because I had hardly drank any water or eaten anything that day?
1222759_tn?1266952425 I enjoy pleasuring my wife, but I have noticed lately that her vaginal odor has gotten worse. It has gotten to the point that I no longer want to engage in oral sex with her, and I don't know how to tell her. This is starting to become a problem in our relationship, what should I do??
Avatar_m_tn The last few months I have a serious problem with my breath that I have never experienced before. My breath literally smells like something died inside my mouth. I don’t have any other serious health issues. I brash my teeth every morning and night very carefully and I use mouthwash too. Nothing happens though; the smell of death is still there. I usually eat homemade food that my brother cooks.

Avatar_m_tn Hi, My partner' vagina smells like her anus smell. Whenever I finger her, it smells like I put the finger in anus. I do not understand why the smell is so bad? Is there any infection or I need to take her for a Doctor? Please help me soon.
Avatar_n_tn It burns when I pee, my vagina smells of a mix of cheese and fish but my discharge doesn't smell! I have a creamy subtance building on the outer of my vaginal lips, and that also smells of cheese - no matter how much I wash! My wee burns more after sex and my vulva gets really swollen. Can anyone help with the diagnosis of this? I have been to the doctors various times but no one can seem to pin point the issue. I have been given trimethoprim and nitrofurantoin before but haven't helped!
Avatar_f_tn I am 24 years old and the mother of 1. I have been noticing an odor that kinda smells like when you are on your menstrual cycle. I have never had the odor before and I am a super clean person, this is really irritating. I am open to anything that you have to say.
