A woman's discharge may change its odor throughout the various cycles of the year. Naturally, if you are not on top of personal hygiene, this can cause an unwanted smell, but it will also change due to your hormones, or if, for example, you are pregnant. An unwanted smell coming from any vaginal discharge is that which tends to be ‘fishy.' This smell can be worse after sexual intercourse or at particular times of your menstrual cycle. This is a foul smell, which is rather unpleasant, and one that you do not have to live with. Once the bacterial imbalance is rectified, your natural vaginal odor will return.
