Hello,
Do you have foul vaginal odor?
Any discharge?
Are you also taking Krill oil?
Vaginal itching?
Since how long have you been suffering from?
Are you taking any medications?
Any other medical history?

It's my first priority to help you.

Thanks.
Waiting for your response.

no signs and symptoms going on and i am not taking krill oil to no toher medical history that would be of relevance and hes been taking it for two weeks and just developede this odor this morning

Hello,
Thanks for providing more information.
As you are not taking Krill oil so it's less likely to be related to vaginal foul odor.
Such vaginal foul odor can be caused due to pH imbalance.
You can try OTC RepHresh for few days.
Also keep your good hygiene.
Avoid Garlic, animal products,foods like asparagus, Brussels sprout, broccoli, and spicy foods for a while which can cause odor in certain women.
If your symptoms'll persist more than a week then consult your doctor for further evaluation and management.
Other possible cause may include Yeast infection.

I hope this helps.

Hello,
If you have no history of unprotected sex with multiple partners then it's less likely to be a STD.
In case of STD,other associated symptoms may include Vaginal discharge,itching,pain during urination.

I hope this helps.

Hello,
You both avoid krill oil for a while.
And try RepHresh for few days.
Hydrate yourself with plenty of fluids as well.
