Why does my dogs butt stink so bad??!

She is a year old goldendoodle who is spayed. About every 30 days or so her butt gets so stinky and will make the entire room smell like it. I usually have to wash the sheets also! It smells kind of like wet iron.
I know it might sound like an anal gland problem but every time I take her to the vet they are completely empty! I'm stumped. She isnt cleaning herself more than normal either so I dont think it's an infection
Is there a possibility, even though shes spayed, to show symptoms of being in heat? I read that is only every 6 months though.
I've never had a female dog before, only males and have never experienced this. Open to all suggestions!!

Dogs also “express” their anal sacs when they are scared, which is perfectly normal, if a bit odorous. Anal gland secretions have a distinct smell that many people describe as fishy. If your dog smells like fish, chances are there may be something going on with her anal glands.
