really bad smell after menstruation

Hi doc, I'm 32 and have been with a new sexual partner for nine months. In this time I have noticed a really bad smelling discharge only in the week after my period. Could this be an STD with no other symptoms? Or is it more likely that I've only been noticing the smell because it's more important now?

You may have a smell of old blood for a day or two after a period. If it persists longer, an infection is a possibility, though not necessarily an STI.
