Hi. I took emergrncy contraception tablets (Norlevo) about two weeks ago. SInce then I've been having a discharge with blood that smells very bad. This forces me to change my pantyliner about 4 times a day. Is this one of the side effects of emergency contraception tablets or something serious e.g. sexually transmitted disease?

Irregular bleeding can be a side effect, but the bad smell is worrying. You may have an infection, so see your doctor.
