I also experienced vaginal discharge since I was a teenager. But based on the results of a normal pap smear. “Is that really a symptom of cervical cancer. Thank you. Please explain.
Hello Hesty, thank you for using the HealthReplies.com service.
The symptoms and signs that you have are in several diseases such as:
- Pelvic inflammation or Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID) is an infection of the cervix, uterus, fallopian tubes, and ovaries that can be caused by bacterial infections, miscarriages, frequent changes in sexual partners, and use of IUD contraceptives. Symptoms of this disease can include pain in the pelvic area, lower abdomen, when urinating, during intercourse, fever, nausea, vomiting, and vaginal discharge
Trichomoniasis is a sexually transmitted disease caused by the parasite Trichomonas vaginalis. Symptoms can include lower abdominal pain, painful urination or sexual intercourse, yellowish and greenish vaginal discharge and fishy odor, pain, swelling and itching in the female area.
- Bacterial vaginosis is a vaginal infection caused by disruption of the normal flora balance in the vagina. Symptoms can be vaginal discharge that smells fishy
Cervical cancer has progressive symptoms, such as bleeding, pain when having intercourse, lumps appear, weight decreases dramatically and can be detected by pap smears. I suggest you to consult directly with a specialist obstetrics and gynecologist so that a thorough examination can be done such as questions and answers, vital signs examination, physical examination, and additional examinations if necessary such as gynecological ultrasound.
As for the things you can do right now are:
- Do not change sexual partners
- Use a condom during sexual intercourse
- Avoid using soap with fragrance content to clean the outside of the vagina to prevent irritation
- Use cotton underpants and do not wash underpants using washing soap with harsh chemical contents.
- Use pads without fragrance content.
- Try after urinating do not rinse from the back (anus) to the front (vagina), to prevent transmission of bacterial infections from the anus to the vagina.
Such information that I can provide, hopefully can help you.
