Fishy smell

everytime i make love with my husband the next two days not only does his sperm drip out of me but it also has a fishy smell? sorry for being so descriptive but i want to know whether this smell is obvious to anyone next to me as it is to me because i cannot stand it, also it is normal i.e. is there need for concern ie infection/std or sumthing rong perhaps? i guess there is no way other than to keep washing about 4 times a day to rid from the smell is there?

Thanks
NB my last pap which i have yearly in JAn was normal!

Semen does have a characteristic odour. If you do not have any discharge at other times, it is probably not an infection.You can try getting as much out immediately after sex as you can.

I THOUGHT I WAS THE ONLY ONE!!! Its terrible! Its so strong i am sure others can smell it! Glad i am not the only one. Have always been very clean, and it only started happening with my husband, not previuos partners.

funny thing is i never realised it before in all the years it only this year, so sumthing changed. Hygiene has gotten better because of it so it cannot be purely a hygiene factor. I would assume its the mix of the fluid btwn the two partners and the fact that it stays inside for some time during the following day that causes this. I am now wondering whether we just dont have sharp noses or whether other people CAN smell this, how embarassing. I remember smelling it on someon long ago and she evidently admitted without us asking that she had been intimate that morning, i assumed she had not washed that morning but this smell is going on after washing and for a few days after one intimate session!!! must be an infection of sorts!

Maybe changing his diet would help. It must be something they eat, or medication that causes this.

Me too ladies, I have resorted to asking my husband to use a condom. I once posted this question on the parenting forum and everyone was very disguted, i ended up thinking i was the only one.

Hi Fish,

I have the same problem and found that the vaginal wipes that you buy in the supermarket work well. You don' t have to wash so often and they have a pleasant fragrance and can be flushed down the toilet. I also put perfume in between my thighs.
