I'm cheated on my girlfriend and had unprotected sex with a friend of ours. This other girl's vagina had a distinct smell. Don't know how to describe it, but it was noticeable. We had sex a few times, even after showers it smells the same. I'm not sure if her ph was off because of her diet (raw fish, island foods) or due to fact she used to be a smoker. Well I stopped seeing this girl, but now my girlfriend is starting to smell the exact same way. There is no discharge or anything. Did I pass bacteria back and forth or something?

Have you been tested for infections, and has your girlfriend?

If not, sounds like you both need to do that, as yes, this could be about an STI or other infection.

Nope. That's what I feared. Guess we can go to the clinic off campus. Do any sti's come to mind where men don't have symptoms other than hpv?

Many STIs are asymptomatic, so the fact that you are not experiencing any symptoms does not rule out an STI. You'll still both want to get tested.

Just FYI with a fishy scent, bacterial infections - BV - are the usual culprit. But regardless, most STIs are easy to treat if diagnosed right away, so so long as you both get seen fast, you will all likely be just fine.

If you have not already, though, you obviously will want to talk about safer sex, and revisit your agreements around exclusivity. If you are going to want to change them by now having other partners, discussing how vital it is all that of includes safer sex is a must.
