What causes smelly vaginal discharge?

I'm 32 years old, about 140 lbs, 5'3" married and very sexally active with my husband. I just saw my doctor for a UTI. I finished all of my antibiotices. Now a month later I have a strange skunky feminine odor and a persistent discharge. No itching or discomfort. What gives?

Hi, thanks for writing..
Get a vaginal swab for culture and sensitivity.. if there is infection, then only you need a furthur treatment.. Antibiotics can destroy the normal flora of vagina. Avoid excessive use of soap. Keep area dry. If foul smelling discharge persists after a week you need to take treatment. hope I have answered your query. Good day.
