Have discharge, pain during intercourse, told infection, previously hospitalized, treated for ovarian cyst. Womb scrub?

Hey Doctor I was admitted in hospital in 2009 and the doctors said I have a right ovary cyst but they didn't operate it, they gave me medication to treat it and then I went for follow up after three months. Since then I have been going to the doctor almost every month complaining about having pains whiles having sex and the doctor says that it is an infection. Can I make a womb scrub or not? Because I'm having discharge problems and abnormal pains whiles having sex

thanks for using health care magic.

Dyspareunia or painful intercourse and leucorrhea or vaginal discharges are symptoms of a genital tract infection and most often a chronic pelvic inflammatory disease(pid).

PID is largely caused by sexually transmissible infections but not withstanding could be caused by blood contamination.

You should meet your doctor for an ultrasound o the pelvis that will visualise the pouch of Douglass for possible fluid collection in case of PID or cystic masses and for a vaginal smear for tests such as microscopy and gram staining, etc.
Another possible cause of painful sex is endometritis but the presence of discharges is more in favor of an infection.

Hope this helps
