Continuous fishy vaginal odor throughout the cycle, no itching, prominent during sex. No improvement with douching, medicines. Remedy?

I have been experiencing like clockwork vaginal odor. It always happens 5 days before my menstrual cycle and continues throughout my cycle. I have no other symptoms (itching or discharge ). The smell is only really defined while having sex, and is a fishy odor. Doucheing and yeast infection meds dont do any good, and I am a very well groomed women. I dont understand. Help!

Hello ma'am and welcome.

A fisht odour from the vagina especially during intercourse could be related to bacterial vaginosis (BV). The yeast medication will certainly not help in this case.

My suggestions are:
-Abstain from all forms of sexual contact till your doctor deems it safe
-Schedule an appointment with your doctor
-Request for a vaginal swab culture and urine examination

Hope this helps.

Best wishes.
