Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum.
Foul or altered smell from vagina could indicate infection. Look out for other symptoms like itching, burning, discomfort, redness, discharge from vagina.
Consider getting a check done with your gynecologist along with a vaginal smear test done to identify infection and treat it effectively. Avoid douching or using harsh soap in the area. Wear loose cotton undergarments. Drink plenty of water and fresh fruit juices.
Take care.
