Vaginal infection is likely.
So your periods were on time.
Now regarding the discharge, itching and foul smell, it points to a vaginal infection.
Please consult an OB - GYN and go for a vaginal swab to confirm type of infection.
Then treatment should be taken.
Till then, please have protected sex only.
Avoid touching the area, and keep your nails short and trimmed.
Change undergarments frequently
