The Cause Of Abnormal Vaginal Discharge And Lumps On The Cervix, But The Pap Smear Results Are Clean?
In the afternoon, I am a mother of 2 children by cesarean section, I had KET Left and now have a Tubectomy.
Good afternoon, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. We apologize in advance because according to the rules of this forum, the answers given must be submitted through the same forum.
Leucorrhoea is a natural fluid secreted by a woman from her genitals as a mechanism for cleansing the body of dead cells and bacteria so that the vagina can stay clean. Characteristics of normal vaginal discharge are clear to whitish but odorless. The amount and thickness can vary depending on the menstrual cycle. Usually during the fertile period or breastfeeding, the amount of whitish mucus will be more.
Leucorrhoea that has external characteristics, for example accompanied by itching, fishy smell, yellow or green color and so on, can be caused by:
Bacterial vaginosis (BV) Trichomoniasis infection Gonorrhea and chlamydial infection Genital herpes infection Yeast infection of the vagina
In your case, often a normal Pap smear is not related to this because a Pap smear is performed to detect cervical cancer. So these two things can be different things. Regarding lumps, we suggest that you have your condition checked back by a gynecologist, so that you can see directly whether the lump is a dangerous thing or not. Also for smelly vaginal discharge that you experience, we highly recommend consulting a gynecologist to do a supporting examination by looking at the content of the vaginal discharge that you pass under a microscope. If bacteria are detected, your doctor will most likely give you antibiotics for consumption.
Meanwhile, avoid sexual intercourse first, avoid wearing tight pants and stockings, clean your genitals from front to back and avoid using vaginal cleaners, especially scented ones. We wish you and your family good health.
That's all, hope it helps.
