Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

You must have caught an Urinary Tract infection or a Genital infection.I advise you to visit your Gynecologist and get examined for the evaluation of same.A course of antibiotics or antifungal application along with excessing hydration can treat the infection efficiently.Meanwhile , please keep taking plenty of water.That will help in quick elimination of infection.

Take care.

Hi. Well just over a week ago i had my period. And i noticed that it smelt a little more than usual, doesn t normally really smell at all.. Anyway, since i ve finished my period, my vagina has had a different smell to it. It is not very pleasant and it never used to smell... What could be the cause of this? I have been drinking more alcohol than usual if that means anything but other than that my diet hasn t really changed. Could it be something to do with my new sexual partner? Could his penis make me smell this way?

Hi.My right labia will sometimes feel itchy and become a bit swollen (even if I don t scratch it). It comes and goes and only occurs on my right labia. What could be a reason for this? I know its not yeast because I got tested for it. I read about bartholin cyst..could this be it? I hope it is not a cancer.. Thank you.
