Fishy odor in my vagina after start to drink sea salt water

I ve been drinking sea salt water every morning for about a month now. I have noticed that my vagina has a strong fish odor. I douche and wash frequently but the odor is very strong especially during sex. I never had a problem before I started drinking the sea salt and I was wondering could that be the problem. I am 50 and am going through menopause. I questioned that as well. Can you help?

Thanks for the query

I would like to know why exactly are u drinking salt water? And no drinking salt water will not cause fishy odor. It could be related to the menopause as it will cause change in the ph of the vagina leading to a different bacterial growth. Meet a gynaecologist and see if u need antibiotics
