Go to Doctor!: GYN or planned parenthood. Sounds like you have retained products of conception and or infection. You need to be examined. Need treatment. Not normal to smell like dead animal!

Evaluation: Get a pelvic exam done to make sure you have no infection. If none found, general cleanliness will help such as washing up twice daily, change pad every 2 hours, wear cotton panties to give some air to the area. Good luck

A year ago I had an abortion (pill) & a miscarriage 4 months apart. Since then I've had mild cramping & white creamy discharge that smells bad. Help!

Discharge odorous: You may have developed a pelvic infection and need to call your doctor for an examination to determine what the problem is. After diagnosis, then proper treatment can be instituted.

See a physician: If you have any foul-smelling discharge after an abortion you should see a physician immediately to exclude either an infection and/or retained products of conception. This can be a very serious problem and requires prompt attention.

Is it normal to have vaginal smell 3 weeks after an abortion?

Is it normal to have vaginal smell 3 weeks after an abortion?

Bacterial vaginosis?: It sounds like you may have bacterial vaginosis. This will require testing with the doctor and then if confirmed treatment with antibiotics. Bacterial vaginosis is an overgrowth of normal vaginal bacteria it is not a sexually transmitted disease.

I have discharge that smells someone said it could be because I've had an abortion but that was a year ago so what could've it be?

Vaginitis: The discharge may be due to a vaginal infection. Having had an abortion a year ago would have nothing to do with it. See your doctor for evaluation and treatment. Take care!

Hello. I had a medical abortion 5 days ago and have been bleeding as said since then. Only today I noticed a foul odor that isn't the normal smell?

Rule out infection: My recommendation would be to see your Dr to make sure there is no infection, especially if there is pain, cramping, fever, nausea, or tenderness in your pelvis. A foul odor/discharge is sometimes a sign of infection.

Had abortion 10days ago, then five days ago I started seeing blood and right now, the blood has stopped but my discharge smells foul?

Bacterial infection: This is one possibility. In my own practice, I sometimes prescribe Flagyl (antibiotic) to help with this. Check with your provider. Sometimes also, such symptoms can be normal after similar procedures.

Bleeding post TAB: Yes it could be normal. As long your bleeding is scant to light and you don't have any significant pelvic pain and or fever. All bleeding should resolve within 1 to 4 weeks of procedure.

I got a medication abortion 2weeks ago, and im still bleeding. The blood is dark brown colored. Its not lot at all but it has smell too. I need help.?

See Your Doc: If you passed the pregnancy, see your doc if you have symptoms of an infection (fever, chills, bad odor, increasing pain), if you haven't passed any tissue, call your doc for follow-up. You may need re-treatment or be better served by surgical uterine evacuation (d & c).I hope it works out for you.

Maybe: It may be normal but you should be rechecked to make sure there is nothing wrong. Old blood can have an odor but it is not usually foul. Bleeding can continue for 2 to 3 weeks but it is usually light.
