Would anti-boic take care of that problem. or surgery. I had one surgery 2007 for very very heavy bleeding
Expert:  Dr. Norm S. replied 1 year ago.

Most likely the strong smell is due to a condition called bacterial vaginosis (BV). This occurs when the good vaginal bacteria are replaced by other bacteria which cause the discharge and bad odor.

It's not really an infection, but we do treat it with specific antibiotics.

It's generally easy to diagnose using a microscope.

I would recommend seeing your doctor for evaluation and treatment. Usually it clears up promptly with antibiotics, although it can recur. Best wishes.
