Period smell, antibiotics... TMI

I should probably name change, but I can't be arsed.

I am on antibiotics for an animal bite. I came on my period today, it smells very strongly of antibiotics. You know the liquid antibiotics the kids get that smell sweet? It is just like that. I keep washing but can't get rid of the smell from down below. It is really strong.

Has this happened to anyone else?

Am I just a freak and what if people smell it tomorrow at work?

Ive noticed a sweet smell even when not on AB. Sometimes I get if after for a few days.

Forever paranoid about it but figured it's probably not that unusual and if others could smell me I'd have smelt others too iyswim?

Hope you feel better soon.

Aha! Maybe this is where those stinky sanitary towels come into their own! Im sure the smell will go as soon as the abs stop, hope you feel better soon

It really is strong.

I move my legs and get a whiff of it. It's like I've dropped a bottle of antibiotics over my legs or something.

I tried to google it but couldn't find anything. They don't list it in on the side effects grin
