First time poster, although I’ve poked around quite a bit in the past.
I know that this question has been asked a million times before, but I always feel like the situation is a little different and then I get confused. I’m sure I’m just being silly, but I can’t help it ^^;;
Anyways, I have a somewhat funky odor to my vag. I’ve had it for quite some time, so I’ve always thought that it was typical, but recently I got a new boyfriend and he’s been complaining. I will mention that he’s never been with anyone else (I dated him once before many years ago, and I know I was his first, and he hasn’t dated anyone else since), so he can’t compare the way I smell to other women. He’s asked that I douche before we get more intimate, but I’ve always heard that it’s not good for you.
I typically have a slight discharge, it’s usually clear to milky white, and is not all the time. I want to say it has a slight fishy smell, but it’s not really rank. It tends to be stronger when I’m bleeding, and since I spot often, that may be part of my problem lately.
Also, I don’t actually have health insurance and am really broke at the moment so seeing a doctor is incredibly hard. I know I’ve heard of sliding fee doctors before, but I wouldn’t know the first place to look for one and am a little hesitant because of a poor experience I’ve had before. So if anyone knows of a home remedy, I’d really like that.
