  • Bacterial Vaginosis (Yeast Infection) causes this.  However, there should be some discomfort as well, such as itching or burning.  If the smell doesn't subside, after avoiding the above named foods and activities, I would advise you to contact your gynecologist have them determine by lab, exactly what you have.
