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'm a guy and this happens to me as well. The problem is that it's all u can eat crab legs and I absolutely go to town on them. Then my dick smells like freaking fishy crab for the next 3 days. When it's really bad, even my sweat has a hint of crab smell to it. Anyway, now all you women know this is not only your problem but ours too. I didn't know about the cranberry juice thou. I'll have to try that next time I pig out on crab legs again.

I had fish last night and today I smell like Nemo and all his friends found their way into my drawers. I FOUND NEMO PEOPLE! Anywho..lol, I'm going to try the cranberry pills for sure. Thanks for the suggestion :)

Omg, I thought like I was loosing my mind when this happened the first time. It was more funny saying this I to Google that brought up you beautiful woman. I might add I was busting a freaking gut at the comments too, I so enjoyed this conversation. Thanks so much for the cranberry idea, I'm on my way to the kitchen to pop a bottle. You ladies rock.

This condition is due to an inability to digest TMA in seafood, it's like oils found in seafood. It may smell like it's coming from your vagina but its really eliminated through sweat and urine. You can Google this for more info. Forgot the scientific name for it but that's basically where the issue is coming from. It's very common but because of the stigma with women and body odor a lot of people go on not knowing why this happens to them.

So for me, it seems to only happen when I eat cooked fish. Prepackaged and processed fish especially. It doesn't seem to happen when I have salmon or tuna sushi/sashimi. But if I have fish sticks or breaded fish filets? The next day, I smell very strongly of fish. It's embarrassing and gross. It's horrible! I don't ever remember this happening in my youth, it's only been over the past year or so. I'm in my mid-thirties.

I am sooooo happy to finally find a post about this!!!! I am sitting at work feeling embarrassed to stand up and talk to someone in fear that they will smell me. lol I had crab cakes last night and it smells like I am wearing them. uggghhh. NOBODY I ask has ever heard of this. I have to really think about where I am going to be the next day before I will consider eating seafood. I am going to the store on my lunch break and getting Cranberry pills!!!!!!
