vagina smells like buttered popcorn

my vagina sometimes smells like buttered popcorn, can anyone tell me if this is normal or anything.... thanks
glennda responded:
I don't think this is normal. I suggest eating yougurt, and maybe trying some over the counter creams such as monistat to try to normalize the vaginal flora. If you are having other symptoms then see your gynocologist and he can identify the exact problem.

Are you sure this smell is not coming from your urine? If it is coming from your urine, it could be UTI or from something you have eaten.

Definetly not normal. Ill never look at buttered popcorn the same again.

Could an Antibiotic also cause something like this to happen?
Cheyenne2009 replied to AnonymousIsMe's response:
I think it could. Try can catch your urine in a cup and see if you can tell it is coming form the vagina or the urine.

If you can go yo your GYN, he/she will give you the meds you need for a UTI or a vaginal infection. (Which ever it is.)

Keep us posted.
