Hi Doc,

I have been having this vaginal smell for as long as I can remember. It just seems to be getting worse. I am on the birthcontrol shot and Ii am still bleeding lightly everyday for about a month now. I have a vaginal odor that i think is pretty strong. I take daily showers and it still smells. It doesn''t smell like yeast or fish, it has a different kind of smell. When I take showers I clean it really well sometimes until the soap makes me burn.

Everyone has a smell and, if you have no discharge and you have "√°lways" had it, it is probably normal. Irregular spotting is common with the injection.
