vaginal smell
Over the last few months I have noticed a bad smell from my vagina, although I don't have discoloured or excessive discharge. I have also developed a weak bladder over this time and wondered if the smell is maybe caused by slight bladder leaks, but I'm beginning to think that is not the case as I am beginning to control my bladder a bit better. Are both these symptoms caused by the same problem? Do I have an STD? I have tried treatments for yeast infections and they have not worked, although I don't think it is that because i'm not itchy.

It does not sound like you have a bladder infection. It may well be that some urine leakage is responsible for the smell. You should see a doctor to determine the reason for the bladder problem and see what treatment is necessary.
