Discharge is so embarrassing
Q Lately, I’ve been getting a watery discharge. It isn’t itchy but it smells terribly of fish. I’m starting to worry other people can smell it too. A Bacterial vaginosis (BV) is a condition where there’s an overgrowth of bacteria in the vagina associated with a change in the vaginal acidity. It can cause a thin, watery discharge which can be white/grey and smell of fish, often more so after sex, but as you describe, it isn’t sore or itchy.
It’s not a sexually transmitted disease, but your doctor or your local sexual health clinic will be able to diagnose and treat the condition with a course of oral antibiotics or gels or creams inserted into the vagina. Avoid using bubble baths, perfumed soaps and vaginal deodorants or powders to try to prevent the infection.
