Patient : My question is why does my lochia smell so bad?
Its like a real bad case of rotten fish, I change my pad regularly, use wipes and wash everyday, as soon as i get out of bath i can smell it already! I am 8days after having my baby, I received one tear but it didn't need stiches, there doesn't seem to be any irritation below, I only get stinging on my tear when urine passes over it, it is embarrising coz my brother was next to me and said ugh what is that smell!
