Dear Doc

About a week ago I developed a very strong, fishy and unpleasant smell downstairs with no other symptomns at all. I phoned the pharmacy and they said it must be thrush. I've had thrush before (prone to it) but never had this odour. Can supplements cause this (but nothing new I'm taking actually). I started on thrush treatment last night and didn't detect such a bad odour today. Can candida really be this bad? Thing is no itching, pain or inflammation. I'm clean girl and have the same healthy partner for 9 years.

A fishy smell is suggestive of infections such as Trichomonas or bacterial vaginosis, rather then thrush. This should not be caused by supplements.
