Thanks for the query.

Your symptoms of discharge from nipple could be due to prolactinoma.
Please get your serum prolactin levels checked.

Foul smelling vaginal discharge suggests infection, could be candidiasis, trichomoniasis or bacterial vaginosis.
Get a swab test done for diagnosis.
Refer to your gynaecologist for the treatment regimens for the same.

Your menstrual cycle and duration of flow seems to be normal. As menstrual cycle ranging between 21-35 days is considered normal with a flow for 1-7 days.

Subjective excessive menstrual flow following tubectomy is due to post tubal ligation syndrome.
Since the symptoms of this syndrome are mild, simple symptomatic treatment is sufficient in your case.

Hope this helps,
Dr Nilofer
