Infections of the genital tract can be symptomatic or asymptomatic, you would not be having any itching, irritation, burning and bacteria or other organism can still be present in a carrier state and can later produce symptoms.But even in carrier state infection needs to be treated other wise it can spread to the partner as well

Most common cause of foul smell is an overgrowth of anaerobic bacteria that are normally present in vaginal flora, their overgrowth causes a condition called Bacterial Vaginosis,its not an STD but its risk increase in sexaully active females...

for exact diagnosis culture of vaginal swab is required and with treatment the infection can be eradicated ..
