Vaginal discharge accompanied by a strong fishy odor is usually the result of a condition called bacterial vaginosis. This is due to an abnormal overgrowth of bacteria in the vagina. There are multiple species of bacteria that grow naturally in the vagina and if they become imbalanced will result in the discharge and fishy odor.

This is a huge source of embarrassment to women, I included, and I battled the problem for years without any lasting relief. After much studying of this condition though I have discovered some simple remedies to cure fishy vaginal odor at home.

This popular herb has been used in bv cure since ancient times. However do not use it in case you are allergic to anything belonging to the sunflower family.

Use of mango seeds, yellow dock herbs and guava leaves
Mango seeds can be placed over the infected area. This will help reduce bad odor which is also responsible for the vaginal discharge and the seeds can help cure the infection to a large extent.

Yellow dock herbs are also effective for curing the infection, which in turn can reduce the vaginal discharge.
A mixture obtained from the guava leaves have good therapeutic values. This reduces the infection best and brings relief to the patient by reducing the infection and hence the vaginal discharge from the vagina.

These above methods are good and effective in reducing vaginal discharge by actually reducing or rather eradicating the germs from the root. But it should be kept in mind that these methods are effective when the infection is in its initial stage. If it is due to a sexually transmitted disease then such simple home remedies are not effective in controlling the virus or the pathogen.
