Please Help! VERY Strange smell from last 2 periods!I am worreid...please help !

Hello, Im not sure if someone can please help me....Iam 40 yrs old. The last 2 periods I had ( Im on it now ) have been very strange.

The flow of blood was FAST , heavy and the smell is very strange! I never had periods that smell at all...This odor is very odd. It smells like chemicals and sweet smell mixed. Its so strong I had to remove the pads asap from the bathroom my period is also shorter, like 4 days instead of 6. I also have MORE clots, too...

Im worried, can someone here please help. Thanks

Have you ever been checked for fibroids? One of the telltale signs of fibroids is the gushing period. You should get an ultrasound done to see if there's a fibroid. At your age, it wouldn't be too surprising if that's what it was.

I have a long history with uterine polyps, which also cause heavier periods in general. I've had the polyps removed 4 times. The last time I had an ultrasound, they said I have a fibroid now, too. That sucks because it's a lot harder to remove fibroids because they grow deep into the tissue.

Get it checked out.

Sometimes bacterial vaginosis can cause a strong fishy odor. It can cause excessive amounts of discharge. I would call your ob/gyn. Good luck.
