36 years old, 106 lbs, 5'1. Recently had a pap smear came back normal. For the last few months have been battling bad odor after sex. I have been with my partner for over a decade and until recently I have been having this issue. I do not have any other symptoms but the fouls smell. Please help!
THere also have been a couple times that I have finished my period and it has been a couple days, we have intercourse and I start bleeding again. LIke I mentioned it only has happened a couple of times. Does this have anything to do with what is going on?

Thanks for posting your query.

Foul smell after sex and occasional bleeding after sex needs some investigation and examination.

There could be some possible reasons for this like:

1.Local infection in vagina
2.Ulcer in the local part
3.Urine infection
4.Poor local hygiene

It is good that you had done pap smear and it is normal.Please visit a gynecologist and get your self examined.

Local examination will clear most of the things.You may need some investigation like urine examination,blood sugar,blood counts as per advise from your doctor.

Please also look for any discharge that you have.

Please maintain good local hygiene,both partners need to look for this.Also look for some local issue on your partner side also.

Take bath twice in a day,avoid tight fitting clothes,wear more of cotton clothes.This will help in avoiding too much perspiration in that area and keep good local hygiene.

I hope this answers your query,I will be available for follow up.
