Thanks for writing to us.
Your symptoms are suggestive of that you are suffering from cervical erosion and cryotherapy is the best treatment for it.
In my opinion in your case cervical erosion occurs due to frequent infection.
It can be due to hormonal changes also that occurs at your age.
After cryotherapy recovery is very fast but you should follow these precautions-
1) Abstaining from sexual intercourse and tampoon use for at least 2-3 weeks after procedure.
2) Avoid douching.
3) Avoid strenuous exercise and physical activity.
4) Pap smear testing is difficult after cryotherapy.
After cryotherapy watery discharge is very common, so please do not worry about it.
You should go for repeat Pap smear test after 3 yrs.
Cervical erosion sometimes cause infertility also.
I think I have answered your query if you have further questions I will be happy to help you.
Good luck.

Hi, Nice to see you.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for writing again.
In my opinion you should consult your treating doctor because foul smell is a sign of infection and it needs urgent attention and treatment.
Watery discharge may be less after cryotherapy if you had a good sleep and eat healthy.
You should first consult your doctor and take treatment for infection that is very important.
I think this information is useful to you, if you need further explanation I will be happy to help you.
Good luck.
