  • I had a very strong odor every time after my husband and I had sex and even sometimes it would be faint when we didn't. We called it the "crab" because that is what it smells like. I told my doctor after months of this happening and he said it was a bacteria infections and gave me a week of antibiotics which cleared it up no problem. I was glad I did because later I was reading up on it and found out it could cause preterm labor. Talk to your doctor. He'll be more informative about what it actually is. Yeast infections don't smell.

  • Yes it's normal in pregnancy and you might have a yeast infection. Just mention it to your OB when you go in next or if there are any other symptoms then give them a call and they can get you meds to clear it up
