rotten potato smell
I have this terrible smell - smells like something died in there or something. I cant identify whether it comes from my vagina or my urine but everytime I go to the toilet there is this rotten potato smell.

I dont have any discharge or itching or anything like that, just the smell. I am not on antibiotics or any medication, i dont know why I stink.

What could be causing the smell? I am too embarassed to go to the doctor, please help.

I can't tell over the internet what the cause is, if you are not sure where the smell is coming from. My advice would be to see a doctor. They are used to this.
