I Have A Head Cold, So Why Does My Vaginal Odor Smell Different/bad?

I have a head cold: nasal congestion, sore throat, cough. No fever. Just a head cold. But I've noticed that my vaginal odor is very strong and unpleasant since day one of head cold. Is this normal?


Your sense of smell can be profoundly impacted by a bad cold so that may be one answer; infection in your body can change the nature of body odors; if you are on any medications that can also cause a change in the nature of body odors and finally, you could have a coincidental vaginal infection - which would typically have other symptoms like itching, pain, discharge.
