Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thank you for reaching out to us for advice.

You should consult your gynecologist for proper diagnosis and treatment.

It is possible that this is a case of bacterial vaginosis. It is a common vaginal infection caused by an overgrowth of certain kinds of bacteria in the vagina. Normally, the vagina contains protective bacteria called lactobacilli. These “good” bacteria help maintain a normal pH level and hold down the growth of harmful microorganisms. Anything that alters the normally acidic pH of the vagina can allow harmful organisms to take hold and flourish.

Symptoms include a foul-smelling vaginal odor, vaginal burning or itching, and a milky vaginal discharge. If you have BV, you may experience one or more symptoms, or you may not have any symptoms at all.
