Vaginal discharge
I have been seeing this guy for a year now and have started being intimate since December last year. Ever since then, my periods have stopped and I have a vaginal discharge, white in colour that smells really bad. It doesn't ich though. I saw my house doctor who diagnosed vaginities and prescribed bedadine douche and vlagyl tablets. This only helped for a tiny while and I still have this problem especially after intercourse. My periods are still gone (and I definitely know that I am not pregnant). I also suffer from all other ailments, i.e. depressive and suicidal, recurrent ovarian cysts, migraine and a very stubborn spastic colon. I think this is more than enough and can't deal with what's happening with me now. Please help.

The best thing in terms of the diagnosis would be for your doctor to send a swab off to see what type of infection there is and give you the apropriate treatment. Bear in mind that a fishy smell for a couple of hours after intercourse may be normal, as semen often smells quite pungent.
You really need further investigations to find out why your periods are staying away and a gynaecologist would be the person to consult for this.
