TMI Why do some woman smell fishy only after intercourse?

I never understood this! I was checked and have no bacteria or anything wrong! It's only after sex. Then in like 3 -4 days it goes away. Is it because semen is alive? And it lives inside a women for about 6 days?

  • i usually shower off afterwards because i think the smell of the semen can get gross if it sits around- of course if you're TTC then let it stay and clean up later

  • I don't know. Have you asked your doctor?

  • I know when i don't drink water, i tend to have that fishy smell. And it happens when we have sex. If neither one of us drinks water, I smell that smell. It could be what you are eating or drinking .

  • It could be due to your ph balance or some other underlying issue. If it continues a trip to the doctor should happen sooner rather than later.
