Is it normal his semen smells like fish after a while?

When he ejaculates, it doesn't smell bad and just smells normal but I was throwing my garbage out today where condoms were (I don't think some were tied) and the garbage was a few days old and it smelled like really rotten fish. I knew it was from the condoms tho. So at first during sex he's fine but not afterwards. Is it normal semen smells like that after just sitting there that long? We are both new to this (new to sex and whatnot) so I'm not sure. I learned my lesson and gonna make sure he ties condoms every time

  • So I’m thinking the smell is prolly a combination of both your and his bodily fluids both on and in the condom that have just been sitting too long. Not anything I’d be concerned with

  • Exactly. And many of us don't understand that we drain for a long time after ejaculating and it will get seriously funky if we don't tidy up before sex.

  • Tell him to flush his condoms down the toilet from now on.

  • Try the same with milk and next time you should more listen what your biology teacher is telling all the day long

  • It's the protein breaking down. The fishy smell is normal I think.

  • I think that's fairly normal... It happens with my cum

  • Also remember those were inside you as well so there's not just one scent but two.

    • Of course, put it on a girl because we all know girls have the stereotypical 'fishy' smell, right? I know I don't smell like that. If I did have an odour I wouldn't be asking this question. He doesn't either unless it's been in the garbage.

    • No, there's TWO, TWO, TWO bodies involved. Drop the #metoo crap for a minute and think. You said it had been there for a couple of days. What ever is there is going to putrefy and it's juice from both of you which could account for a much worse odor.

  • You know there are many fishes in it lookimg for your vagina.

  • It's normal

  • Haha yeah that stuff gets rank

  • Regardless of smell, insist for condom. It is safer in all ways and always...

  • Ureaplasma infection are “greenish discharge, fishy odor, and/or vaginal itching. It’s important to note that these symptoms are also caused by bacterial vaginosis or trichomoniasis.”

    I’d ask him for f he notices it after jacking off or what not.
    I used to never have a fishy smell then one day noticed it. Got tested for everything and came up clean, after a few weeks of this funk I finally took another test and the doc said to “be extra thorough” and it showed up for ureaplasma. Went on a dose of Doxycycline and it’s cleared up. Supposedly 80% of people have this and it goes undiagnosed. Super common. Worth getting tested to see if it’s the culprit.
