Vaginal ordor sometimes after a period
I have noticed a few times, not consecutive though, that I tend to experience some odour coming from the nether regions after my menstrual cycle.

I do not use tampons, so it can't be a stuck tampon.

This can be really embarassing as it is also aggravated by sexual activity.

What could it be?

It is normal. It is probably the last bits of old blood being shed.
