I just had a pap about two days ago since

Patient

Q: I just had a pap about two days ago since I've notice a discharge, not smelly just white and my side hurts. I've been drinking everyday

Symptoms:  Pain in side
Doctor

A:   Hello,
Thanks for the query.

It could be a symptom of pelvic inflammatory disease or a vaginitis which can generally cause backache and symptoms of white discharge. Wait for your pap smear reports, if suggestive of an infection, you may need a course of antibiotics. Maintain personal hygeine.Use cotton undergarments and avoid nylon ones. Drink plenty of water and avoid alcohol and smoking.

Hope this helped.
Regards
