Delayed periods, foul smell, strong odor on ovulating. Perimenopausal?

I used to be regular but within the last year I have become either late or early by 2-3 days. When I am late a foul smell will start 2-3 days before I start my period. When it actually gets started, the flow is much heavier then on my normal periods. I m 35 with one child. I also noticed when I ovulate the odor is strong. Is there anything to do to change the odor ( I don t douche ) and should i be alarmed about the irregular periods and is it possible I m perimenapausel ?

You need to get blood tests done like those of TSH,Prolactin, Day 2 FSH,E2,LH.
An ultrasound of pelvis.
You will also need a local examination by a gynecologist.
Depending on the reports, your irregular cycles can be treated.
It also helps if you are trying to conceive again.

There is no need for you to be alarmed here.

Please get a PAP smear done. Also, get a transvaginal scan done to look for the endometrial thickness.

I do not think there is something majorly wrong with your health. There may be a hormonal imbalance causing this.

You will be fine soon.

Take care.
