Doctor visit needed: Generally speaking, bacterial vaginosis is a foul odor. Certainly, with any discharge in a sexually active female, you would need to have complete std testing. Regarding dryness, I would consult with your doctor to determine if this might be secondary to hormonal changes, medication or birth control pills.

Probably coincidence: The morning after pill is not expected to cause a discharge, with a disclaimer that hormone changes through the month will normally cause various discharges. The pill could conceivably affect them. These are normal and should not concern you. If you current discharge continues to bother you then have it checked.
