smelly discharge
hello ladies, I too have been suffering with the same issues right before or after my period. I have been diagnosed with BV each and everytime. And treated with vaginal or oral metronidazole. I works temporarily but as soon as my period returns, it returns. I feel your pain and have no idea what to do about it. See your physicians or go to your nearest health/std clinic for free screening.

I understand exactly how you feel as I have suffered with the same problem, but now the awful smell is right through-out my cycle from beginning to end. On another site it was suggested to try vinegar, the regular one by combining it with water. The only vinegar I had at home was Apple Cider Vinegar which I mixed with water in equal parts and guess what? It actually worked, vinegar is one of natures natural cleansers.. Anyway, I felt fresh all day and couldn't smell that awful 'period smell' when I used the bathroom. Try it and see, you might also want to try Evening Primrose oil capsules which lessens the blood flow and discomfort and is also meant to work. Hope this helps, good luck!!

I am also looking for an answer to whether it is normal for menopausal periods to have a very noxious smell. Almost unbearable. It is only the blood that smells. I can't seem to find a clear answer to this anywhere on the internet.

smelly period
i'm on the same boat, i saw 7 OBs : when my period is due about one or two days before , i get a watery smelly discharge and i get it at the very end as well. it's NOT BV !!!! metrodinazole won't work if you have this. my blood has no smell, it's the watery discharge (on top of it) .i think it's an infection inside the uterus. i've done many tests, taken many different antibiotics, NOTHING HAS WORKED so far. please help if you have an answer. douching won't do either, the problem is not in the vagina but in the uterus. otherwise, it would smell all the time.

Smelly Vaginal discharge
Try yoghurt. Make sure the container says �live yoghurt�, because this contains live lactobacilli bacteria. It is the friendly lactobacilli bacteria that are reduced in numbers in bacterial vaginosis. Gently smear a small amount of yoghurt over the vulva (the area around the opening of the vagina), and also put some inside the vagina. The easiest way to do this is to use a tampon with its applicator. Push the tampon back inside the applicator so you have a space for about a teaspoonful of yoghurt. Then insert the tampon in the usual way, which will push the yoghurt into the top of the vagina. Remove the tampon an hour later. Do this twice a day for a week.

smelly discharge days before and after period
I have the same issue. I hate the smell and I feel uncomfortable if my partner goes down there. She says it smells normal, but it smells horrible to me. Any advice on how to get rid of the smell?
