I think that it's important to stress that even though odor can come from bacterial vaginosis, or hormonal changes, there may be other causes of vaginal odor as well. I wrote a couple of posts in my blog that addresses infectious and non-infectious vaginal odor, http://mpdela.blogspot.com/search/label/vaginosis.
Many ladies from the various forums do participate in a bi-weekly Women's Conference Call, which is free if calling from the U.S., in which we discuss these issues at length. You are welcomed to join us. You may either choose to participate and talk on the call, or to just listen in. Both are perfectly acceptable. The details are noted in my blog, http://mpdela.blogspot.com. You can also check for women's posts in the 'Search posts through Labels'.
