It has been about a month since I noticed a strong foul odor. I don't have any discharge, itching or burning. I went to 2 doctors and they tested me for bv and trichomoniasis twice and the results both came back negative. The other doctor still prescribed me flagyl/metronidazole 500 mg twice a day for 7 days. I just finished them today and still no changes. I don't think the smell is coming from my vagina. I smell my underwear and I rub myself down there and smell my fingers but I don't smell anything. The doctor even said himself that he has a sensitive nose and he did not smell anything when he was doing the tests. It seems like it is a body odor. It has a strong ammonia and rotten smell. I have been doing a lot of research and I saw that hormonal imbalance can also cause body odor. I have noticed that when I'm home relaxing, I don't really smell anything but when I go to work, I become very self-conscious, worried and stressed about my smell and it seems like it drives my hormones up the roof and I notice a very foul smell. It is very embarrassing because I know my co-workers notice it too because they joke and whisper about it. I can't live a normal life because I try to avoid being around people. Sometimes I call out for work or leave work early and I'm afraid it's going to affect my job. I really hope someone can help me please. I am really stressed out about all this. I don't know what else to do.
