Strange smell before my period

I am a sexually active woman on bc pills. Just before I reach my period, about a week and a half before it... I get this strange smell. It sort of smells like a strong yogurt and a tinge of blood scent mixed together. I was thinking it could be a yeast infection, because I've heard you could possibly get a scent while having one. But everywhere I've read says the smell of a yeast infection is more of a rising bread kind of smell. I have no idea what rising bread smells like. There is no itching, burning, or redness, which are common signs of a yeast infection. I'm just confused. Everything else is normal but this smell. I've also heard that some women change scents before their period.. but mine is really weird and sometimes strong. Luckily, my husband says it doesn't bother him and it's not gross. It's bothers me though and I want to know what's going on.

I hope someone can help. Thanks everyone!

Re: Strange smell before my period

Nobody knows what I'm talking about? I forgot to mention that I'm not taking any antibiotics....and there is no abnormal discharge. Maybe it's because I'm not drinking enough water? I don't know....

Re: Strange smell before my period

I get an undistinguishable smell a few days after my period. My dr once told me that some women can pick up on scents of hormones as they rise and fall in our cycle.

Re: Strange smell before my period

Well, the day I wrote this post, I started my period. That could be why that scent was a little strong. I didn't expect it to come early, but it did. Ah, well.... I'm not really going to worry about it. I go to the gyno in May for my annual pap smear, so maybe I'll ask then.

Thanks for your responses!
