Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Hormone implants can cause unusual odor sometimes.
This is due to the change bacterial flora in the vagina.
This does not mean infection always.
Simple colonization also can produce odor.
You listed the thrush and BV treatment.
It is better to get a vaginal culture first to identify the organisms.
Simple solution may be to remove the implant.
Please take a probiotic daily containing lactobacillus and bifidobacterium to improve the vaginal flora.
Thank you for sharing your concerns with us today. If you have any additional questions or need further clarifications, please do not hesitate to ask. I am here to answer them. I wish you good health. Regards, ***** *****

I haven't been sexually active since having the implant in due to this situation I have been tested but have had the all clear but could it still be the reason of an std ? This has been going on for over a year ?
Expert:  Dr Basu replied 2 years ago.
I do not think this is STD related.
This is just the hormone related issue.
Do not worry about STD.

My doctor is useless and always sends me always with antibiotics is it best to go to a gum clinic even though it might not be an std ?

It is better to consult with a gynecologist.
This is not infection related.

Sorry last question even though it might not be an std what stds could cause constant vagina odour even after washing it is still there but is there any that could cause this?
Expert:  Dr Basu replied 2 years ago.
Gonorrhea, chlamydia, trichomonas can cause that.
But they do not remain for so long after so many antibiotic courses.
This is not an infection related issue.
Best wishes
