Question: My boyfriend has started to say my vagina produces a rotten smell and he can barely stand it, he says it can't be right and I've had it since I've met him over year ago, however my last boyfriend never complained. Is there chance I've an STI? I've also noticed I tend to pee a lot lately and my panties seem to be damp a good bit ? Caroline

Vaginal odor can have many different causes. Examples include:

- Bacterial vaginosis

Medical tests are necessary to sucessfully diagnose any of these conditions, and treatment varies depending on the condition.
