Hi, im 16 and lately i have noticed that my discharge is smelling a bit off. it never usually smells like this and i was just wondering what it could be. it smells a bit like B.O, its very strong and not nice smelling.
any ideas to get rid of the smell, or any ideas on what may be causing it.
Are u a virging? If not it is possible it could be a STD. If you are then it could simply be a yeast infection even if you dont have any itching (ive had them before n only went to gyno bc of the discharge smell and i didnt have any itching). This can be treated with simple over the counter meds. If not it may be something that needs to be treated by a doc and by antibiotics so talk to someone u trust n get to a gyno as soon as possible. Good luck n keep me updated n hoped this helped a little .
I told my mum and she said its most likely a part of growing up and puberty and all that.
I am a virgin, so its not an STD, and i think my mum was right because the smell is starting to fade, so it must of just been a random stage of puberty.
