Has anyone ever experienced foul smelling periods?

For the past year, every other month, I have a foul smelling period that is just HORRIBLE! Ive been to 3 MD's and had various test (all neg.), all they can tell me is to not wear tampons (which I've stuck to), and douch after my period ends (done that too), to no avail. Im getting really tired of hiding out for 5 days b/c Im too embarrased by the odor! The last MD has put me on the pill to see if it helps (maybe hormornal, she guesses) but I do not want to stay on them b/c Im 31 and may want a 2nd baby in the near future. Any recommendations from anyone with experience??? Thanks in advance!

You really do need to try going without a tampon as suggested since this could very well be the cause of your problem or at least try an all natural one. You don't by chance use a deodorant one do you? This could also be part of the problem.

No, I do not use deod. tampons, actually, when I did use tampons, they were the all natural ones. Im very contious (sp?) about things like that. There is something else definately going on and Im almost + that its not the tampons. The strange thing is its every OTHER month. The other month is just fine, normal smell, normal everything. The MD also said that blood could be "pooling" around my cervix and thus, when my period comes the next month, the smell. Im just ready to go for yet ANOTHER opinion. B/C im really not satisfied with the reponse Ive gotten. Its very embarrasing and I shouldn't have to live with this, its horrible!
