Brief Answer:
Seems nothing to worry

Detailed Answer:
Hello Mam, thanks for trusting HealthcareMagic,

I understand your anxiety about the issue but generally if there is no itching and the smell is just a mild one there is nothing to worry .

Still wear cotton based undergarments and keep the area clean and dry.
Use toilet paper every time you pee and see the smell and discharge.

In case still it persists and bothers you then do visit a gynaecologist for examination of the involved area.
Also please let me to know the reason for hysterectomy at such a young age.
Waiting for your response

Regards
Dr Manisha
