Can lower abdominal pain and fishy smell in vaginal discharge be associated with ectopic pregnancy?

Hi, I’ve been having pains for the past 2 weeks in my lower right abdomen. Their sharp but they come and go, appendicitis does run in my family but I’ve also been diagnosed with endometriosis which can cause an ectopic pregnancy. I’ve missed my piriod and I’ve been having a weird fishy smell in my discharge and it’s never happened before. It also hurts when I finish urinating. I went to the doctors last week and they said it was a urinary tract infection, I’ve been taking medication for that for about 5 days now and it’s not helping. I’ve been reading up on lots of things and I’m going to the doctors again tomorrow night but I’m very concerned.

Hello,

I suggest you go for a pregnancy test and a USG abdomen and pelvis to rule out the cause of delayed periods and discharge.

Pain during micturition (passing urine) and defacation is a typical feature of endometriosis for the pain you can take meftalspass.

Meanwhile, you can take tab Levofloxacin once in a day for 7 days and plenty of fluids.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
