Smells like egg?

Nov 8, 2002

Hello Doctor, I have a story with a question today. My fiance told me her genital area started smell like decayed boiled egg when she was 17 years old and finished last year when she was 21. She also told me it stank even just right after shower. She said she didnt have any sick and ill, not itchy or painful around it. She believed it as the smell of her virginal secretion. Its finished but she still wonders what it was, so do I.

Doctor, do you happen to know if there was anything virus or any temporary symptom of some kind of disease which becomes serious later?

Doctor, please help us of understanding what was going on in her body, I especially very really worried

Response from Mr. Kull

Her vagina should not smell like a decaying egg. Has she seen a gynecologist about this? It's possible that she had a vaginal infection that resolved on its own, but nonetheless, she should be in touch with a medical professional about this (especially if she has never had an ob/gyn examination).

See my discussion on vaginitis for more information.
