Welcome to ehealthforum

Foul smelling discharge can be indicative of any infection.Discharge and bleeding for initial few weeks is normal after delivery but if the discahrge is associated with foul smell,fever,pain then it points towards infection.Clean the vaginal area daily.
Kindly visit your Healthcare Provider for evaluation and take the prescribed medications(if needed) accordingly.

Take Care!
