Take it from a woman who has experienced "vagina smell" or more specifically a fishy vaginal odor. I have done my homework and everybody has their opinions on a woman's body. Here are some that I happen to agree with:
1. That fishy vagina smell is not normal at all.
2. Yeast infections usually don't smell fishy.
3. Bacterial infections & STDs can cause this fishy odor.
It is in my experience that most occurrences of a "vagina smell" or more specifically fishy vaginal odor come from either bacterial vaginosis or an STD. If you have seldom had sex, it sounds like a bacterial infection like bacterial vaginosis. Bacterial infections normally cause narrow, milky discharge. But no other method beats going to your doctor & seeing what it is for sure.
I would not try all of these things they suggest you do at the "cures for bacterial vaginosis" websites if you don't even know what it is. You'd be filled with monistat, azos, miconazole, YOGURT, garlic, douches, deodorant, & everything else. So go to a gynecologist first off, and then frequently visit your gynecologist. It is the best thing for a woman to do.
It’s not unusual for a young girl, or any woman for that matter, to wonder or be insecure about her smells because you are becoming more aware of your body. Now I definitely agree with not bathing so much, once a day ought to do it. Douching too often is not good and from lots of experience I recommend not at all. Showers are better. Baths permit all of the dirt from your body to enter the vagina...although a hot, bubble bath is relaxing from time to time, and it is not good for all the time.
It’s perfectly normal to want to keep away from odors, especially coming from the vagina. I have had many problems with a bad vagina smell, but it made me educate myself & see gynecologists to learn about what is going on with my body. I'm not going to diagnose you & I'm no doctor, but keep your vagina dry & ventilated. No fragrance sprays are ever good. They irritate your vagina and cause damage in the long run.
So What Is Bacterial Vaginosis?
Bacterial vaginosis (BV) is the most common cause of vaginal infection. It is less commonly referred to as vaginal bacteriosis. Bacterial vaginosis (BV) is caused by an imbalance of naturally occurring bacterial flora, and should not be confused with yeast infection. The most common symptom of Bacterial vaginosis (BV) is an abnormal homogeneous white vaginal discharge (especially after sex) with an unpleasant fishy vagina smell. (We will go over how to get rid of vagina smell later). This malodorous discharge coats the walls of the vagina, and is usually without irritation, pain or erythema. In turn these produce toxins which affect the body's natural defenses and make re-colonization of healthy bacteria more difficult. There are a variety of causes for bacterial vaginosis. Thongs are notorious for causing bacterial vaginosis due to the cloth rubbing against the anus and vagina. Cases of bacterial vaginosis are more likely to occur in sexually active women between the ages of 15 and 44, especially after contact with a new partner. Condoms may provide some protection and there is no evidence that spermicide increases BV risk. Although BV can be associated with sexual activity, there is no clear evidence of sexual transmission. It is possible for virgins to get infected with bacterial vaginosis.
