Doctor :  
ok
Doctor :  
what about ur partneris he having any problem like this??
User :   no...
Doctor :  
is the fowl smell is fishy??'
User :   yes a little
Doctor :  
it is due to infection
Doctor :  
which may be bacterial/fungal/parasitic in nature
Doctor :  
first we should rule out what is the organism causing infection
User :   my boyfriend had a surgery six weeks ago because he had priapism...
Doctor :   ok
User :   do you think this has something to do with this
Doctor :  
may be
Doctor :  
but priapism surgery has no direct link to this infection
User :   ok
User :   what could os cause the infection?
Doctor :   does he have any symptoms like this??
User :   and what can i do
User :   i dont think he does.
Doctor :   then u dint get infection from him
Doctor :  
do u have diabetes??
User :   no
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :  
the most common cause of infections is use of tampons/iuds
Doctor :  
and next is lack of proper hygeine of private parts
User :   oh i always use tampons when im in my period
Doctor :  
okk
Doctor :  
so that may be the reason
User :   i try to be very clean in my private parts using wipes and deodorant
Doctor :   there are many organisms which cause infection like candidi,trichomonas.gardenella,gonococuus...
Doctor :  
dont use deoderants
User :   well i use eve
Doctor :   treatment depends upon the type of organism infected
User :   is that why i have nausea and bodyache?
Doctor :  
infection any where in ur body makes u feel weak
User :   ok
Doctor :  
if it is yeast infection then u have to take more yoghurt
Doctor :  
but we should go for culture of discharge to know what is the organism
User :   ok
Doctor :  
these two topical creams are available otc for yeast infection
Doctor :  
i have given the names only ffor infromation..but first u go do culture of discharge
Doctor :  
Femizole-7, Gyne-Lotrimin)
