HI KeshiaWalker and welcome to Scarleteen.
If your discharge does smell dramatically different, that is a sign that you need to get things checked out. Unusual discharge is a symptom of some STIs, but is also a symptom of other infections. Regardless of what it is, the sooner you get it checked out the more likely it is to be easily treated.
its not a mild change its just different and the smell is also i read it can be not so fresh some days but that can just be because a change everything is normal do you think i should still get checked ?
Unprotected sex poses risks of both STIs and pregnancy, so I'd really encourage you to get a full STI screening and a gyn exam as soon as possible. If you want some help finding a provider to get that care, happy to look around for you.
