-Dear it would be better if u would have high vaginal swab, one local examination for healing of Epixiotomy.
-if not Epixiotomy well and foul smelling discharge from vagina better to have tab augmenting 625 mgs 8 hrly and tab metronidazole 400mgs 8 hrly for 7 days.

If it’s fowl smelling then it may be vaginal infection. Get your swab test done for culture and your doctor will take sample of discharge.

U need to see ur gynaecologist to see any infection in ur episiotomy wound, other possibilities are of infection or ur periods, becoz u can have ur periods after 6 weeks , only examination will rule out things
