I'm currently having my period, and I've been noticing something that seems to be becoming worse and worse with each cycle. My menstrual blood smells awful, to the point where changing pads is almost making me gag. As far as I know, I've never had bacterial vaginosis, or even a yeast infection. I don't stink down there the rest of the month, but during my period I'm extremely worried that people will smell me. I have endometriosis and a heavy flow, but I don't see how that would affect smell. It's bad enough that my period is heavy, painful and generally distasteful, but I'm at my wits end with the horrid stink!
Suggestions or comments, please?
