there may be some infection causing bad smell.If the smell is hard to be tolerable associated with severe cramping, fever, heavy flow with thicker blood clots, you need to see your gynecologist.
heavy bleeding needs detail evaluation . it may be due to fibroid or dysfunctional uterine bleeding (DUB) or any polups ang growths.
consult your gynecologist about it.
take care
