Vaginal smell???
Dear Doc,

I have a slightly yellow discharge which smells like Jik, sometimes quite strongly, I've been to two different gynaes and they did a smear but couldn't find anything. Is it possible that the smell of a vagina changes as one gets older? This is quite embarassing to me.

Yes the smell can differ. If the swabs were normal, it suggests that there is no infection.
If in doubt about whether a discharge is normal or not, consult your doctor.
