User avatar Hello,
Usually dark bleeding means old blood and it was just not evacuated with your previous period. Hormonal alterations, as with the pill, may have affected this. I would wait a while longer to see if things get back to normal but if not, schedule an appointment with your doctor in case the foul odor is caused by infection.

Do check to be sure you have not retained a forgotten tampon. Foreign objects are a common reason for a foul discharge.

Best wishes
