Tampons are not hygienic - they allow bacterial growth, prevent vaginal cleaning, change vaginal pH, and contain various chemicals that may interact with vaginal fluids. Tampons will always cause bad odour and may cause vaginal infections too, thus better to use cups or pads. If the smell continues after your period you may have a vaginal infection such as bacterial vaginosis, if so then see your doctor.
