About Vaginal Odor
Vaginal odor is usually from inflammation of the vaginal area. Inflammation of the vaginal area can occur because of poor hygiene but is often a result of an infection in or around the vagina.

Causes of Vaginal Odor
Some women are self-conscious about the scent of their vagina. The vagina, just like the mouth, skin, and another area of the body has a unique fragrance.
Causes of Vaginal Odor include:
Bacterial Vaginosis - The infection most commonly associated with a change in vaginal smell is bacterial vaginosis. Bacterial vaginosis, is not necessarily a Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD), although it is associated with sexual behavior.
Yeast Infection - Yeast infections are known as the cause of vaginal odor changes in some women, and are not sexually transmitted and, though they are sometimes associated with sex, some women are vulnerable to them for some other reasons.
Douching - Douching, in particular, can be a bad idea if you have a vaginal infection. Some suggest douching with an infection can increase the risk of it ascending into your uterus and causing pelvic inflammatory disease.
Pelvic Inflammatory Disease - The other reason why you might have a fishy vaginal odor is if you are suffering from Pelvic Inflammatory Disease. PID is an infection in your pelvis that happens when a vaginal infection spreads upwards into the reproductive organs like the uterus, Fallopian tubes, or ovaries.
Clothing - Tight-fitting clothing is a common culprit and that includes some shapewear. Fecal matter that travels to the vagina can cause infections and odors; therefore, avoid clothing that encourages this spread.
