Hi,

Thanks for writing in.
Foul smelling vagina is not normal thing. You first make list of your symptoms and see if it fits in to any of following mentioned category or not.
Candidiasis is always associated with itching, burning in area and white-curdy discharge.
Other infections like bacterial vaginosis will have pain in lower abdomen and foul smelling discharge. Trichomoniasis will also cause thin, grenish discharge and discomfort during intercourse.

The treatment line differs for each of these conditions. So I would recommend you to get examined with gynecologist to make correct diagnosis and for treatment.
I hope I have answered your query. In case of any doubt, revert back.
Best regards,
Dr. Neelam.
