Hello Is a strong vaginal odor (fishy ), a proof of presence of BV? Or do some women just have a strong vaginal odor?
Response from Mr. Kull
A strong vaginal odor, sometimes described as "fishy," can be a sign of bacterial vaginosis (BV). It is important to determine whether or not there has been a change in your vaginal odor; some women have a stronger vaginal odor than others.
If you suspect that you have BV, go see a doctor and ask her what she thinks.
