Hello and thank you for choosing EmpowHer,
Vaginal odor, especially coupled with itching or burning indicates an infection. It could be Bacterial Vaginosis or a yeast infection. Yeast infections can go away by themselves. But a bacterial infection should be treated with medication. I highly suggest that you see a gynecologist right away and have a pap smear. Planned parenthood often has appointments sooner than a regular gynecologist.
