Embarassing Question, maybe TMI?

I am early in my 2nd trimester, and I have noticed a "smell" down there. Its very strong and very unpleasant. My discharge smells like something died. Yes, I am clean down there...very clean, and, no this is NOT normal for me. WTH?? Can anyone help?? Going Anon on this one due to the nature of the question!

  • Tell your doc, it might be a yeast infection, UTI, or something else. Don't worry, tons of perfectly "clean" women get them while pregnant, there are just too many changes going on in there! :)

  • could be a yeast infection - they can have different symptoms when you are pregnant than you would normally get

  • this may sound gross or what not but if your still having sex and getting cummed in than it could be the dead sperm . .
