i noticed on the second-3rd day of my period that it smelled unusually strong and bad, a smell i cant describe, its not fishy or blood smelling. it kinda scares me. is it because im on the pill? could i be pregnant? i got pap tested pretty recently and im healthy. so what could it be?

A strong, foul odor is usually a sign of infection, so even though you've had a recent pap test, something could have developed since then. I'd recomend you check with your gynecologist if you're worried.
(And just to clear up - foul/strong smelling discharge is not a sign of pregnancy nor a side-effect of the pill; and to add to that, if you're having your withdrawl bleed and have been taking your pill correctly, there's abasolutely no reason to think you could be pregnant.)
