What type of odor you have?

Customer: replied 19 days ago.
Its just a strong smell I've been wearing a panty liner

You likely have bacterial vaginosis--overgrowth of odor producing bacteria in the vagina.

This is due to the change in vaginal pH.

Please avoid douching.

Please avoid alcohol, smoking.

Please avoid sexual intercourse during the course of treatment.

You should take a probiotic ( Culturelle Women's Health Balance) daily to balance your vaginal pH and prevent future infection.

You can try over the counter Boric acid 600 mg vaginal suppository daily for 7 days.

You can start with boric acid and probiotic as they do not need prescription.

If no improvement after a week, you will need the prescription antibiotic metronidazole from your doctor after an exam.
