  • depends...

    Is it a new odor?
    Is it repulsive/fishy/yeasty?
    Is it just a stronger smell?

    yes, women are supposed to have a scent and sometimes that scent is strong, but, it isn't supposed to be fishy or yeasty or take your breath totally away.

  • If it's different enough for you to ask, then I would book an app. & see your Dr.

  • No discharge and Its definately an unpleasant smell. I've been spotting for over 8 months now because of the new birth control im on and i've just assumed it was partially from that. Its getting stronger every day though. I can litterally smell it when i pee. . Sorry guys. . TMI i know I just dont have insurance at the moment so I really dont wanna go to the Dr unless neccessary

  • is there like a community clinic in your area? one that charges fees based on your income? usually there is at least one in any decent-sized town. try the phone book. or call the department of social services, they usually have lists.

    it could be nothing, but it could be something. only a doctor could tell for sure.

    you could try to douche, but it might make things worse if you have an STD like herpies

  • i would go to a drug store in you area, i know they have a test that you can do yourself to see ifyou have a vaginal infection of some sort and also a test you can take to see of you have a UTI i would take those and see what they say then go from there
