User :   hi, last weekend i was diagnosed with a large cyst on my left ovary. it had ruptured, but stopped bleeding. i was also tested for STD's and found i had none. but now i have a very smelly and milky white discharge that seems to be flowing frequently. what do i do????
Doctor :   Hi,
Doctor :   Dr XXX here
Doctor :   Do you have itching in the Vagina?
User :   no
Doctor :   is the discharge curdy in appearence ?
User :   no, its slightly but not really thick
User :   they checked me for a yeast infection when i was at the hospital but it was negitive
Doctor :   ok, since the ovary synthesizes and release the hormones , the break of the cyst would have pored high amount of hormones into the blood stream , leading to hyper proliferation and secretion of cervical and vaginal glands
User :   so this is normal? and do you know how long it will last?
Doctor :   yes, it is normal , but exaggerated .
Doctor :   it depends on the rupture
Doctor :   the time since rupture , the site of the cyst and the amount of bleeding
User :   ruptured last friday morning. the ultra sound revealed bleeding in the pelvic region due to my cyst
Doctor :   How many days has it been since discharge ?
User :   i was kept for observation overnight and was released sunday morning
Doctor :   ok,
Doctor :   i suggest you to wait for 5 more days from now if it doesn't subside then visit a gynecologist to get a blood hormone assay
User :   ok, i was supposed to follow up in a month with a GYN to see if the cyst remained and for anougher ultra sound
Doctor :   yes, that is a requirement
User :   ok, thank you for your help
Doctor :   Is there anything i can help you with ?
User :   no thanks, ill just follow up with the GYN
