My Period Blood Smells
The menstrual cycle begins with the shedding of the uterine lining, resulting in bleeding from the vagina. A few weeks later, one ovary releases an egg and the uterine lining thickens in preparation for a potential pregnancy. Pregnancy can occur at this stage if sperm fertilizes the egg. If the egg is not fertilized, the egg will leave your body and ...Read more
My gf had a weird period light blood brown blood brown discharge it never turned into a heavy flow could she pregnant or just weird period?
Hard to tell: It can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result if done correctly. One can test about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after a "weird" period. An Ob-Gyn doctor can evaluate any persistent or worrisome symptoms. ...Read more

Check for tampon: A bad smelling bloody discharge can be from a retained tampon. Check for that. If not, see your doctor to be checked for an infection. ...Read more
Infection: Menses and tampon use can associate with infection in the vagina. Voided urine can then become unusually odorous. Odor in the urine can be caused by yeast, bacteria, or old blood and associated ammonia. Certain foods can make urine odorous, also. Asparagus is well known to do this. Force fluids to see if this problem abates. You may require urine testing and urine culture and pelvic exam ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Sloughing: The discharge experienced during menstruation is composed of the lining of the inside of your uterus that has built up in preparation for a fertilized egg.

I had placenta previa with my 2nd baby its been 18 months since the birth im now useing implanon for contreception. My period. Blood smells bad?
Bacterial vaginosis: Vaginal odor would be unrelated to your delivery 18 months ago and unrelated to implanon. This sounds like infection and most likely bacterial vaginosis. Blood tends to make the odor worse with this infection. Treatment is antibiotics so you will need to see your obgyn for testing and confirmation. ...Read more
My stomach hurts and my period blood smells i am aliitle light headed. Do i need to go to the hospital?
It depends on: several things. If your period is within last 1-2 weeks and you are not sexually active, then pregnancy is not the reason. If you are sexually active, but recent period, then you may have a vaginal infection. Or you may just have a bad period with some viral infection on board, and it may take a few days to get rid of the stomach cramping and light headedness. ...Read more
My period blood smells sweet and my stomache hurts but my discharge is normal and so is urination. Should i be worried??
If that's all, no: By stomache I assume you mean the general abdomen as opposed to the stomach in the mid upper abdomen. If the pain is crampy and subsides to a lower level, that is usually ok, if you can press on the area gently with only mild pain, appetite is decent, no fever, chills, burning urination, and no pregnancy then this is likely menstrual cramps. Abdomen pain can fool anyone, don't ignore changes ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

My period blood always smells really bad i get BV alot so i was wondering if it may be something to do with that?
Very possibly: If your vagina & genital tract seem to be colonized with bacteria such that bacterial vaginosis is frequently diagnosed, I believe the bacteria with menstrual blood could have an very unpleasant odor. Work on preventing BV: monogamy (reducing partners helps), condoms, good hygiene, wiping from front to back, not douching, cotton underwear, loose fitting (in crotch) pants can all help. Good wishes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Im on birth control (implant) me and my boyfriend two days ago had sex and now i've started my period and my blood smells like fish. Why?
Odor: The odor is from vaginitis or from bacteria generally found in low numbers in higher numbers. Implanon is famous for breakthrough bleeding and the extra blood may be changing the bacterial flora from the normal bacteria that creates an acidic environment to limit growth of bad smelling ones. A low dose of Estradiol .5 mg at night may help the bleeding, metronizadole for the infection. Gd luck. ...Read more
Urine smells like period blood(over 2 months). I urinate normally. Need to drink more water without a doubt. What's the cause of this?

To learn what is in your urine you need to take a specimen to your doctor or to a laboratory and have it examined professionally. Good luck. ...Read more
Menstrual odor: An odor of menstrual blood may come from a tampon which inadvertently was not removed and is still in the vagina. Sometimes a "new tampon" is placed when the string from the previous is not seen, and the "old" tampon collects bacteria and has a very strong unpleasant odor. See your gyn provider for an exam, since an infection can result which can be dangerous. ...Read more
