    What causes vaginal odor?

    I have never had a yeast infection, but sometimes my vagina will smell really bad even after showers. I do not douche as I have been told not to by physicians. I do not know if this is my body trying to tell me something, or what... But it is starting to bother me, especially during sex.

    If this is a "fishy" type odor, this may indicate a bacterial infection; fairly common since the vagina normally contains both bacteria and yeast in certain quantities.
