Kind of an embarrassing question. Rafael's Mommy ♥ Texas 764 posts

This is really embarrassing to talk about but I just want to know what could be going on. I've had vaginal odor for a few weeks now...I'm not dirty. I don't wash it with soap, just water. I keep everything clean down there. I don't know what could be going on! I thought it might be drinking too much dr. pepper (that's what my mom told me). But I quit drinking Dr. Pepper and it helped a tiny bit but the smell is still there. I have kind of thick white discharge (but it's not the same as the kind I had when I had a yeast infection) and my pee is cloudy and really dark yellow and smells funny as well. What could be going on?

you could have a UTI or could be BV (bacterial vaginosis) they can cause strong odors and you dont have to have all the other symptoms for it to be either of those.

Well I had a OBGYN appointment about two weeks ago and nothing came up. However they didn't test my pee...isn't that how you tell if you have a yeast infection or UTI?

thats how they test UTI and im surprised they didnt have you pee and test it. alot of obgyns do it every time. but yeast infection i think they have to actually do a culture test on it (not sure but i believe so)

After googling and reading the symptoms I think I have bacterial vaginosis. Do any of yall know of any home remedies or anything so I don't have to go back to the doctor?

I had it when I was pregnant, the only thing that took care of it was a topical that I got at the doctor. :/

Me too. :( But that shit got rid of it real quick. I felt soooo gross when I had the BV. But apparently it's common.

It could be your hormones too from the shit you went through a few weeks ago.

If your urine is dark yellow, you are not drinking enough water! IDK about the other stuff but maybe more water will help to flush your system out.
