I have had a bad smell for three weeks and had a abnormal heavy period for 7 days and still have lightly bleeding with bad smell!?

Sounds like BV: Vaginal discharge will change throughout the menstrual cycle and can be a normal sign of the hormonal changes of pregnancy. On the other hand, vaginal odor can be a sign of bacterial vaginosis. Vaginal itching can be a sign of a yeast infection. Sometimes vaginal discharge can be a sign of a sexual transmitted infection. It is a good idea to get checked out.

Bleeding for 4-5 days. First two- three days heavy. Period or implantation?? Occurred the day my period was due.

Probably period.: A positive home pregnancy test can tell a woman that prior spotting was actually implantation spotting. 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 about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period.

Tests are accurate: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate and not affected by foods, herbs, common illnesses, sexually transmitted diseases, or medications. A correctly done urine test gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have happened) or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon.

Can be normal: I would have to get more history to answer your question, and you age, menstural history etc., if you are saying you had 5 NEG pregnancy tests and you are still late and this is new for you, than you can wait, some times stress, medications etc can cause a person to have delayed period. However if your pregnancy test were postive than it is a different management

Possibly miscarriage: If missing your cycle for 3 months is unusual for you and you had pregnancy symptoms, it is possible you may have been pregnant. Did you do a home pregnancy test? See your doctor for an assessment as you are passing a large amount of blood and require further evaluation. All the best.

Need exam: This is very abnormal and clearly needs to be worked up. You may be suffering from endometriosis, pid (a chronic severe infection), etc. You really need to see a gyn at this point.

Can exercise cause a heavy period?

Can exercise cause a heavy period?

NO!: Exercise, if anything, will make your period better, but in general, exercise and the severity of your period are not correlated. Get a bunch of elite female athletes together and you will see: even though they are all at the top of their sports, in amazing physical condition, exercising huge amounts most days, some will have horrid periods, and some will be light and easy. It's genetics mostly.
