Are you saying the blood itself smells bad? Maybe you could try changing your sanitary pad even more often, or try using tampons. Since tampons are inside, there would be no smell. I do not think ''blood'' itself smells bad. But when in contact with air for awhile, it can become an odor issue.
There are wipes you could try each time you change the pad or tampon. They are portable and you can take them with you.
Do not feel bad... be proud and confident!!! I have never smelled anyone and knew they were on their period. Hope this is of help!
