Hello, I'm Dr Manos, M.D., board certified ObGyn. From what you say you've been seen by Gyn and have used some creams and or antibiotic pills. You continue to have an odor. You're menopausal and you have fibroids. I have some questions that might help. First how sexually active are you and do you have a committed partner or spouse? Does the odor change after intercouse? Does your partner complain of an odor? Synthetic or cotton underwear? Do you sleep with underwear? Have you looked at diet as far as asparagus, garlic, alcohol and even coffee? Do you use scented bath soaps? Finally, is there itching or burning associated with your concern?

Hello, I'm Dr Manos,M.D., board certified ObGyn. Odor is a vague symptom when not associated with three basic infections or inflammation. Yeast vaginitis, trichimonas vaginitis or bacterial vaginosis are diagnosed and treated appropriately. Other complaints of discharge and odor are not clear cut and I've had forty years of experience. I know the vaginal lubrication that is produced during the arousal phase of sex helps with cleansing the area but must be cleaned up with some soap and water. Some odor arises from the vaginal urethral vestibule and should be cleansed between the labia once or twice per day. I imagine the infections have been ruled out. Using this form of consultation is limited by not a traditional doctor patient interaction. If you have washed with some soap and water I have no others suggestions
