Heavy periods : Heavy periods are one of the most common problems obgyns treat. This is unrelated to tubal ligation. There are many options we can discuss. Foul smell likely indicates bacterial vaginosis which is common when the vagina is exposed to blood. Schedule a visit and we are happy to help.
