Dear Handy Andy,
The fishy smell in the vaginal fluid could be a sign that you have a higher than normal bacterial load in the vagina. Try rinsing the vagina with Betadine douche twice a day for 5 days. Some things do get excreted in urine, good example is asparagus - drink lots of water and try and identify the culprit so that you can leave it alone!
