I have a problem with my vaginal discharge. It stinks but there’s no itching. I have been

to see a doctor but my condition remains the same.

As a woman you know that you can expect to have discharges on any day, and that these discharges are different depending on what time of the month it is. It’s the same with

discharge smells. They are different every day. Most discharges do not have a bad odour, so when a discharge changes and becomes smelly you are right to go to a doctor. It is usually a sign of a sexually transmitted infection. Do not be embarrassed, but go back

to the clinic and insist on more treatment. Always use condoms.
