Fishy Smell after sex

I know this question has been asked by many people but here is it.  Ever since me and my wife met (over a year and a half ago) everytime after sex she seems to get an odor down there.  We do not use protection and i do ejeculate inside of her everytime.  We had a stint where we weren't together for a bit before we got married and yes we had sex woth other people.  We both have gotten tested for STDs and they have come up negative.  It persists to happen every time after we have sex.  I am gone during the week for work and here on weekends and thats when we have sex usually twice or more a day, we cant seem to figure out what is going on.  She says she smells fine during the week but once i get home and we have sex it happens.   She says it isnt a yeast infection b3cause she has had one before, what could it be? Bad mix of PH balance together?  Please help?

Hello,
It may be a case of bacterial vaginosis ("BV"). BV is a common vaginal infection, although not an STD, it can be treated with antibiotics. It's caused by an imbalance of bacteria, and usually considered 'mild'. For a proper diagnosis & treatment, your wife should make an appointment w/her gynecologist for an pelvic exam.
Good Luck

Thank you for the reply I appreciate it.  We have been dealing with this since we met though (year and a half ago), so thats what makes me think its something other than a BV.  We both are clean but almost everytime this happens.  Could it also just be the mixture of our fluids that's creating the odor?  Again thank you for your response, we are trying to get to the bottom of this and it's alittle frustrating for her and I.

It is DEFINITELY BV! I promise you. I have been struggling with it for over the past year but I don't get the fishy smell. My roommate has struggled with it for years (over 5 on and off) and she is the one that taught me about it. Please do your research on it they don't have much because a lot is not known yet they are still doing testing on it because it is very tricky to handle. You get rid of it and it comes right back. The reason it comes back after sex with your wife is because your not using a condom. I know that ***** so much but because the ph of your sperm is so high and our vaginas ph is suppose to be like 3 or 4 your sperm throws the ph off and creates that fishy smell. I haven't had sex in months with my bf to rid the bv for good! And if we do its with condoms to be safe now so I don't get bv. Get her vhessential prebiotic suppositories which help keep fresh and prevent problems. And if she has the bv the only thing I have found to help me is the VHessentials vaginal odor treatment, it really helps with one use! I break them in half and make it 12 instead of the 6 you get. There's other treatments you can look up online I never tried boric acid or the garlic clove but I swear my roomie and I have tried everything else! And we love VHessentials. Let me know if you find anything else that works!

That is so wild that it happens like that all the time.  I was talking to her about this and i was telling her it was probably my sperm messing up her ph balance creating the smell and thats what it semms to be.  I appreciate the response and i will tell her about those things that you mentioned.  Again thank you for the response!
