I'm writing to you all in the hopes that you can help me out with a problem I have, and have had for quite sometime now. I have a very strong vaginal odor that I would best describe as sour and sweaty. I'm 26 and went to the gynecologist for my annual pap smear/exam less than a month ago. Nothing turned up weird -- I have no STDs (and am not currently sexually active) or abnormal paps or anything like that, and she didn't say anything about odor when I was there, but I also didn't bring it up at the time. I shower daily, wear cotton panties, and try to do all the right things. I do have a lot of discharge, but I have had that since starting my period at age 12. I have no other symptoms, just this insanely strong smell. It is not and never has been fishy, but I am trying to figure out why I have this. I will probably wind up going to the gyno about this, but am just wondering if anyone else has ever had anything similar? If so, what in the world is it?!
Thanks so much in advance and feel free to ask questions -- I'm happy to clarify. :)
