My periods are never really regular but this month it started with a very light bleeding, lasting one week,then the actual period came,but after it ended, the light bleeding came back and it wouldn't stop. Now it's been a week since my period has stopped, so I'm bleeding for one entire month. I can see it more when I whipe.But this week the blood has a foul smell that it's not its usual smell. What could this be?

Bleeding between periods can have all sorts of causes: infection, fluctuations in hormone levels, etc. The best thing you can do is get checked out by a healthcare professional. If you are or have been sexually active at all, it would be a good idea to get up to date with your STI testing too.
