Disgusting foul smell and extreme wetness during intercourse.

I have been having and extremely disgusting odor and wetness during intercourse forthe past two months. I have been tested and do not have an STD and have been with the same (and only) partner for 7 months. I have not changed my diet. No pain, or lumps, bumps, rashes, nothing else out of the ordinary. I have not made it to see my doctor due to scheduling problems ( I am extremely busy). I was weondering if anyone had an suggestions? Any advice is greatly appreciated.

hi! what kind of smell does it have? if it is a fishy smell then it could be bv (it is not a std) it is kind of like a yeast infection but it has to be treated with annitobicts to get rid of it and if not treated it can cause PID. do you have any white discharge?

A very prominent sign of gardinerella (excuse the spelling if it is wrong) is a foul smell after the period is over.  It's not a big deal to treat, just antibiotics, but it's something to act on rather soon once the person notices it.  You might have a bacteria like that.  Get to the doc as soon as you can work it in. :)

You could possibly have BV, which is an infection like the above poster said. I had the same thing a few months ago, with the foul odor and a lot of discharge that I noticed especially after sex. The only way to clear BV up is with antibotics, so you must go to a doctor to get tested. Hope this helps, & good luck.

Usually a foul smell has something to do with a bacterial infection. Also, if you started taking supplements such as Fish Oil, or other herbal supplements, sometimes you will end up with this very foul smelling odor. However, a very common reason for this type of odor is a bladder or kidney infection. When you urinate, do you experience that odor then also?  Get to your doctor, bring a "clean caught" early morning specimen of your urine (the minute you wake up and keep the sample in the refrigerator) and then take it to the doctor.  I had something similar, twice, and each time it was a kidney infection.  Hope this helps.

when i have sex with my husband there is a foul smell.  I always thought that there should not be an ordor during sex.  but, when i have sex with someone else there is no ordor.  My husband is 20 yerars older than me.  He drinks alcohol and i don't could it be the chemistry make-up.  Or do we need to see the doctor.  I have an yearly check-up and has been tested for std

There is BV and then there is cronic BV, cronic BV is when it keeps coming back, you take the meds and then about 2 months later its back!!!! BV can smell like garbage, fish, poop, and some other stank I cant figure out, my cousin has even said hers has smelled like rusty wire, the longer you leave it the stinkier and wetter you get, now I have been taking RepHresh Pro-B and the RepHresh Douch and the wetness is gone i feel fresh again and the smell is gone, sometimes I notice a light fishy smell during sex but the next day I go and get a RepHresh douch and im back to good!!!! So you can try this it has been working for me so far :) I get my RepHresh from Zellers, Shoppers Drugmart, Walmart and so on it is about $40 for the Pro-B pills and about $15 for the douch.

You could go to school nurse or a health dept previously mentioned. But I really recommend you speak with mom. Not only will it bring you closer, she can help you prevent further complications down the line.. Female organs are very complicated and delicate.

The reason women acquire BV my doc told me is because of multiple partners within the man or women if it's reaccuring time after time. You may not necessarily get an STD but if one partner has had more partners than the other past/present it could throw a womans ph off balance causing PH. & some women are just more like to get BV because everyone has different immune systems

Anyone having a horrible, unbearable smell with a brownish and watery discharge, especially after sex or a bowl movement that drips, as well as after sex, and not experiencing any other flu - like symptoms, as crazy as it sounds, it is probably a tampon that got lost or forgotten about. I had this happen to me. The smell was disgusting and i did some research and found my same symptoms and i thought I would never forget about a tampon.  But I decided to check. I felt it and knew that it was a tampon that was causing the smell and dripping discharge. It's nothing to be scared of, but I went to the ER to have mine removed because I tried for 30 minutes to get it out myself. The doctor said it happens all the time but may cause serious infections and i was pumped with shots of antibiotics and prescription meds. Don't dream out, just give it a check and stay calm.

I'm 46 and I've been married to and having sex with the same man for 25 years. For the last couple of weeks I've been having foul garbage smell after sex.  The only thing different in my life is I started Jenny Craig diet 4 weeks ago, and have been eating more yogurt as it calls for 1 or 2 per day.  I don't usually eat yogurt ever.  So is this yogurt throwing off my balance down there or what else could be causing this odor I've never in my life experienced?
