Dr. David :

I am a cancer doctor.

Dr. David :

no, this would not be a symptom of cancer.

Dr. David :

bowel movement changes can be from hormone changes or dietary changes

Dr. David :

but you should see a doctor once a year and get your stools tested for microscopic blood.

Dr. David :

pink foul smelling after your period could be a sign of bacterial vaginosis or old blood coming out or even a vaginal fungal infection.

Dr. David :

if you continue to have bad vaginal odor or discharge after your period is over, you should see your doctor and get a gyn examination to see if you have a bacterial vaginosis or vaginal yeast infection.

Dr. David :

at your age, cancer would be unlikely.

Dr. David :

let me know if you have questions .
