Foul smelling vagina. History of yeast infection and UTI. What do you think?

Hi my name is carlee! Last year I had my first yeast infection which I think turned into a uti ( bc I then got treated for A uti) but ever since then my vagina smells awful! About 3 weeks ago I bought women s daily probiotics and whenever I take those the smell goes away! I wanted to test it so I went off of them for about a week and the smell is coming back. What do you think?

Thanks for writing again.
The awful smell from the vagina is likely to be due to a persistent yeast infection. A vaginal swab culture will help in finding out the exact cause. Taking probiotics reduces the yeast growth thus reducing the smell during those days.
Hope my answer is helpful.
