Her vagina stinks like fish

Mar 12, It's possible that you have bacterial vaginosis. However, you should make an appointment with your health care provider and get checked. Bacterial vaginosis is a type of vaginal infection.
Women at any age can have it – even teens and adult women who have never been sexually active, but it's more.
What causes it to smell “down there” (my vagina)?
Apr 17, Certain sexually transmitted infections (STI's) such as trichomoniasis can cause a different odor. A woman's vagina is naturally filled with bacteria but when there is an overgrowth, the condition is called bacterial vaginosis and causes a “fishy” odor.
Not all vaginal odors are caused by an infection, however.
Description:Neither does sweat for that matter. First, menstrual blood is made of both blood and tissue that sheds from the uterus. When menstrual blood mixes with our own bodies, bacteria and odor may develop. Many describe this as fishy. Just like when we sweat. Noticing a fishy odor is common, and very likely unnoticeable to anyone else.
