Smelly Vaginal Odour
Please help me, I'm too embarrased by the situation that I'm in right now. For the past three months few days after my periods I will have a very smelly discharge that will disappear after a day or two. The problem now is I don't get that discharge but my vagina smells awful, I can't stand the smell myself so I'm even scared to sit around people.

What could be causing this as it can't be an STD I'm not in a relationship. Is the any medication you can recommend at the pharmacy.

There are other types of infection apart from STDs. You would have to see a doctor to make a diagnosis and see what treatment is needed.
