Customer Question

Hello
JA: Hi. How can I help?

JA: How long have you been dealing with the issue? In general, how has your health been lately?
Customer: Literally just this past saturday it started.

Hi,

Occasional mild vaginal odor without any other symptoms such as itching, pain, or discharge is not of a concern. However, when there is a strong vaginal odor such as fishy smell, it suggest vaginal infection. The most common causes of vaginal odor are bacterial vaginiosis, poor hygiene, STDs etc. Sometimes, odor is more noticeable after having sex, but should not last long. If you problem is there for a while, it would be a good idea to get vaginal swab to pin point the cause of odor.
