    The human body's composition contain small amounts of sulfur. Hydrogen Sulfide(H2S)and Methane(CH3)are byproducts of human digestion that are released in foul-smelling flatulence(farting). Dorland's Illustrated Medical Dictionary, 32th Edition, and The Merck Index(Encyclopedia of Chemicals, Drugs, Biologicals),  14th Edition, state that bacteria and viruses and fungi contain some sulfur. Is it possible that bacteria and viruses and fungi that inhabit the vagina emit sulfur odor?

    Please make an appointment with a board-certified gynecologist.  Those symptoms may be due to infection, for instance.  

    Please, however, do NOT use a douche as that can disrupt the natural balance of bacteria ("vaginal flora") in that region.  Technically, that region is thought to be self-cleaning.  However, the outside is supposed be cleaned, such as with unscented cleanser and tepid (lukewarm) water.

    It's normal for your vagina to have a slight odor. But, a strong vaginal odor — for instance, a "fishy" smell — might be abnormal and could indicate a problem. Abnormal vaginal odor that happens because of infection or another problem is usually associated with other vaginal signs and symptoms such as itching, burning, irritation or discharge.

    Visit doctor if you think it's not normal. Otherwise wash area with soapy water and rinse at least twice daily.
