Can cum smell fishy?

I've been having sex with this guy and I have noticed that after he cums inside of me it leaves my vagina with a slight fishy smell. I always have to douche at least 2x after sex to get rid of the smell.

I don't have a discharge or any symptoms of anything. So I wonder if it's just his sperm or its interaction with my vaginal fluids?

I recently learned he may be sleeping with other women unprotected... which is why I figured it was him. Yes, if I confirm he's with other women I know that's my 2nd cue to leave him alone.

  • Don't douche that's bad for the vagina.

    Don't have sex with men who sleep around. High chance if STDs. Condoms do not protect you from all STDs.

    Discharge is very normal. If you don't have discharge you probably have ovulation issues and might have difficulty in getting pregnant.

    The fishy smell is normal and yes you are right its coming from him... rather than you. Yes the vagina and penis can react to create a new smell.

  • There is always an scent left over after sex. But you definitely need to stop douching, and if he is seeing other girls you need to leave him in the dust. And not getting all moral on you but save letting a guy finish inside you until you are in a long term monogamous relationship.

  • Never ever douche your vagina ever Douching can cause an overgrowth of harmful bacteria. This can lead to a yeast infection or bacterial vaginosis which it sounds like this is what you have

    • its common in the states i gather but i never met a woman in the uk that does it

    • @wankiam doctors always warn you to never do this as our vagina have a way off cleaning themselves but sadly so many girls don't listen and they leave themselves open to infections

  • So what's happening is likely not his cum itself, but how it's altering your vagina's microbiome. Sperm is alkaline, vagina's need to be slightly acidic, so what you're smelling is different bacteria than normally grow there. Usually it stops happening if you're having sex with him regularly as your body adapts to it.

  • Smelly sperm doesn't have to be a symptom. Just like sweat, there are lots of different factors that may cause his cum to smell fishy. In fact it might help him to cleanse his body by healthy eating and drinking. Same as sweat smells after smoking or Drinking alcohol.
