Foul Odor in Menstrual cup?!?!?!

 Ok, I know this is kind of gross, and this has never happened to me before. 

I have the diva cup and I started my period on the 1st of January. I wasn't home, so I put the Diva Cup in on the second day. I put it in and didn't change it all day long, but changed it today. When I took it out it had a very foul smell, like a dead animal or something. I am overall healthy and my menstrual blood  has never had a bad odor before. Ever. So I'm wondering if it has to do with the fact that I left it in all day. 

I took it out, and I'm gonna leave it out for the rest of my period this month. I know we're supposed to change it 2 times a day, I was just really busy and it's so darn comfortable I forgot I even had my period!

So anyways, I want to know if this foul smelling blood is because it's a day old or something. 

Some factors that may relate to this are:

*I smoke marijuana, but not on a regular basis, (I had some on the first though)

I smoke cigarettes

I am in the middle of a complete total body cleanse (ORGANIC)*


Please help!

Thank you!

***EDIT***

I forgot to mention that the foul odor is originally from the menstrual blood... not the cup. It's my blood that smelled like that and I was wondering if I was the only one who experienced this problem.
