Hi,there are a few reasons that could cause this.First is vaginal infection for which antibiotics are needed.Use of pessary may be useful.UTI is another cause.I suggest use of clotrimazole pessary for a week at night.Good hygiene is very important.Wash with antiseptic every few hrs.As the lochia stops,the smell should go away.
