I have struggled with a yeast infection for years that I have just recently been able to get somewhat under control. For the most part, as long as I eat a very strict diet and eat a tablespoon of coconut oil a day I can keep it at bay. The problem is this, I've never had a smell with a yeast infection before. It's always been discharge and discomfort but that's it. Recently I had unprotected sex with my partner who is uncircumcised and now my yeast infection smells sour. I cannot get the smell to go away and I am extremely depressed about it. I didn't realize he had this same smell on him down there until after we had sex. It was too late to do anything about it. I don't know what to do and I have scoured the internet looking for answers. Everything says it's just a yeast infection, but mine has never smelled before! Please help me.
Right now I am on a strict diet (I had strayed away and eaten things I shouldn't have for a little while) and eating coconut oil and just started taking 2 teaspoons of MSM powder yesterday. Will be doing that daily. I can't deal with the sour smell, I really need help.
