This answer was rated:

Hi, I'm not sure if I should see a dr or not, but I have noticed a not so pleasant odor from my vaginal area. I have only one change in discharge and that is there is a lot more then normal. Even during sex it's almost too much for my husband to maintain. Is this something I should be seeing a dr about?

Noticed the change about a week ago, the discharge looks normal just over abundance of it. No other symptoms, I did have a yeast infection and tonsillitis about 2 months ago.

Thank you for the information,
Normal vaginal discharge can be increased in a few conditions.
Pelvic congestion, hormonal changes, stimulation or irritation can cause excess vaginal discharge.
Vaginal discharge can be increased in infections too.
Bacterial vaginosis can cause increased discharge with unpleasant smell.
I would suggest to take an examination by doctor.
A course of metronidazole would help to treat it.
I hope this information helps.
