SMELLY DISCHARGE
I have a candida infection and have used Diflucan but a funny, fishy smell is emanating from the vaginal area. Is this related and how do I get rid of it? Could it be that its a mixed infection, ie. bacterial and viral? Can I infect my partner?

It could be a mixed infection. Trichomonas often gives a fishy smell. Ask your doctor to take a swab to check. Your partner could be infected and should be treated.
