Patient :Good afternoon, I am 20 years of age. I have had exessive foul smelling vaginal discharge for about a year now sometimes it comes out really watery. I also have lower abdominal pain come and go and especially during sexual intercourse. And I sometimes bleed in between periods and after sexual intercourse ( blood in the discharge). Should I get a vaginal bacterial test or go for the PAP smear? I talked to my professor (he is a Doc.) He suggested I only take the bacterial exam. I would like more feedback as to what I might have and what to do.
