Maybe: After pregnancy, miscarriage, or vaginal/uterine surgery it is not unusual to get a discharge until healed. Often this discharge will have an odor because of blood/old blood and bacteria in the discharge. To be safe have this evaluated by doctor. However if associated with any fever, chills, dizziness, nause/vomitting, abdominal pain, bleeding, then follow up ASAP
