Question: Vaginal Odor

 mo82 - Wed Apr 29, 2009 11:31 am

I am 26 years old and I recently had sex for the first time. I have always had a vaginal discharge and after my first time I bled a little and had a brown discharge. The discharge has turned clear again, but now I have a faint odor that I didn't have before. Should I be worried?

User avatar Hello,
I would not be alarmed about this but if you get pain, itching or strong odor, there could be infection or yeast so you should have it checked out. Most likely it is nothing to worry about and will return to normal soon. Body fluids do vary throughout the cycle and with sexual activity, lubrication, etc.

Best wishes.
