Abnormal smell/discharge

Long story short, my LDR boyfriend and I are finally, after many months apart, near each other again. I've moved up to be closer to him while he goes to school and well, as Im sure you can imagine... we've been making with the sex pretty hardcore.

Anyways, lately, I've noticed, especially the day after sex, heavy discharge and an odd, metallic smell. It smells, to be blunt, like semen. The discharge is clear, sometimes a little cloudy, and other than being gross-feeling, not at all bothersome. There's no itch or discomfort, just a whole lotta girly juices. I shower after sex (or a yeast infection will eat me) and it doesnt usually start until almost 24 hours after the sex. My boyfriend and I do have unprotected sex from time to time, is it possible Im just leaking his semen?

The scent is so strong I feel like Im stinking up the room. My boyfriend insists he loves my scent and cant tell the difference but I just know me, you know? What would cause a sudden shift in vaginal odors like that?

yep it's just ejaculate, likely. Semen doesn't stay in you, gravity makes it leak out.

I have the same deal for a couple days after sex (always unprotected), a change in smell and the appearance of my discharge. It usually goes away after a few days. I never really bothered to worry about it considering it always came and went with my sexual activity.

I figured thats what it was. I wasnt so much worried as much just annoyed and curious. I feel like Ive got a big sign on my back that says, "I HAD SEX LAST NIGHT" and everyone can smell it.

Are you using any sort of birth control? I know that some of the women in iud_divas have said that their discharge has changed smell/consistency.

After it hangs around in your vagina for a while, semen can start to smell kinda funky. Most of it leaks out right away, but sometimes some will find a little corner to hide out in until I move or cough or something, and if it's been a little while, the smell is like "whoa -- STALE HUMPING."

It doesn't usually bother me too much unless I got a little lovin' before work, and it takes that opportunity to escape. I'm a cook, it's hot, smells are kinda magnified, and nobody else has ever noticed but I sure do.

lol, stale humping - I think that's the best description ever for that smell!

and yeah, I second that little corner thing - it always finds the most inconvenient time to go "HI THERE :D :D"

I get this too. It drives me crazy because it just doesn't go away - even after showering and spraying water up there! I also work with kids and everytime I squat down to get down to a 2nd grader's level, I smell it. Sometimes it reminds me of the night we had but usually it's, "gosh I hope nobody else can smell that!"

A lot of times a guy can transfer bacteria to his partner during a sexual act. Does your boyfriend practice proper hygiene down there? Make sure he is washing himself with soap and water every day. He might want to add a penis health creme that contains Vitamin A to his daily routine as well. In addition to smoothing out his penis skin, this creme will help kill any bacteria that are leftover after his shower. It's good stuff.
