I have a very strong vaginal odor that smells like rotten

Customer Question

I have a very strong vaginal odor that smells like rotten meat. It started about 4 weeks ago. I no longer have a period and I am married. The only thing I've done differently is started taking hormones 2 months ago. There is no abnormal discharge other than the smell. No pain urinating, no itching. What could be causing this and how do I get rid of it?

Thanks for this question

This is probably bacterial vaginosis

you need to be tested for this with a vaginal culture from your doctor

it is treated with an antibiotic called metronidazole
