bad smelling discharge during sex

I have been off my birth control pills for about 5 months and have had regular periods. Just recently I have had a foul smelling discharge during intercourse. I have never had any problems with odor or anything like that. I have had the same partner for four years. Do you think this may be Bacterial vaginosis? I have no itching or burning...........just the foul odor during sex and I noticed the same odor when removing a tampon during my period. Help? anyone else experienced this problem. I have an appointment Monday with gyn...Thanks

Fishy smelling? Or just a stronger smell than what is usual for you. BV smells fishy. Could also be a yeast infection. Best to wait for that gyn appointment as it could be anything.

I have experienced the same kind of problem. I went to the Gyno for my yearly and all test came back normal... and I even requested all STD's and HIV to be tested(b/c they don't test unless you ask or they see a problem!)I'm so confused
