Well the commonest cause of bad vaginal odour is altered vaginal pH from infections such as bacterial vaginosis & trichomoniasis .

These are treatable causes and its adviseable that you get vaginal swab test to be sure on this. Treatment includes course with metronidazole . Use of vaginal probiotic supplements can also be very helpful with disagreeable vaginal odour.

Its unlikely to be a result of implant

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
