I have been getting a smell from my discharge, I have had lots

This answer was rated:

I have been getting a smell from my discharge, I have had lots of swabs taken and they've all come back fine. The smell gets worse as the day goes on. It's not bacterial vaginosis. It's really getting me down. The smell is not fishy I don't even know what to compare it to. What is it? I have had the marina coil for 3 yrs. I have had monthly periods until a couple of months a go when the smell began.
Hi. What does the discharge look like? Have you also had a urinalysis?

It is perfectly normal looking. I suffer with urine infections and have been under urology for a while now. I have had dialations and now they are looking into what else they can do. But my last urine sample was ok
OK Ceri. Any other medical conditions and have you had blood work?

The only other thing I have is acid reflux. Yes had some blood work and all was ok again. Something was slightly low but they didn't tell me what it was and said that it was fine
OK. Most likely this is a pH problem with your vagina without the infection. I suggest you take lactobacillus probiotics and use RePhresh vaginal gel for one month--that should clear this up

Let me know if you need any more information please

Sorry I should have said my gp has already told me to do this. I have done it for 5 weeks. It has not helped at all.
OK. Then I would suggest a course of metronidazole even with the negative swabs and one diflucan 150mg table--ask your GP about that
