Q: 

Seafood makes my vagina smell?

So this might seem like a weird problem but ever since I can remember when I eat seafood such as fish, scallions, shrimp, etc. It cause my vagina to have a fishy smell. Its always the next day after I eat the seafood and only lasts for that one day, then its back to its normal, odorless smell. Their is no change in discharge, its not thicker or abnormally colored, there is no burning or itching or any other symptoms. Is this normal? Could this be some weird allergic reaction? Thanks!

I am 29 and have suffered with this for a few years but not with salmon for some reason but cod is the culprit for me

I learned about the 100% cranberry juice trick and it worked fine. I usually drink it with my meal. Recently, I had fish a couple of days and got my juice after the meal and it didn't work as well. Plus as a diabetic the juice is no good for me. So I came back searching again. Going try the pills and lemon juice. I hope it works!

This is a follow-up to my post. I am happy to say the lemon juice worked. I had a very tall glass of lemonade (real lemons) sweetened with Stevia (I am diabetic) and it worked just fine.I drank it along with my 2 pieces of fish and salad. I also squeezed lemon juice on my fish.

I'm 20 years old and I have been experiencing this every time I eat seafood for at least 3-4 years

Same here really! I'm 23, this has only started in the past 3 years! I'm gonna check out what's been said in the comments (cranberry pills) and see if that helps! Giving up fish would be the easiest option but I actually love eating it so I don't want to!

I tried getting rid of the horrid lobstee/vagina smell by wiping down my vagina with a vinegar/water solution but it did nothing. TIME is the only thing that helped get rid of that gross lobster/vagina smell.

Lobster gives .me THE WORST vagina odor and it lasts for 3-4 days. Worse than any pre or post period smell. Something awful. So, if I'm out to dinner and I know I'll be seeing my boyfriend on any of the 5 day following this dinner, I just NEVER order lobster.

I also suffer from this but over the years I have noticed that if I am near to my period like the day before or during my period if I eat seafood I do not have the side effects of eating seafood.anyone else notice this? I have always felt that my hormones were off and causing this terrible seafood nightmare .

Im curious to know the ages of women experiencing this. I didnt have this problem until I was well into menopause( age 53). I am 60 and still have this problem. Happy to know there is a remedy.
