Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

I think your situation may not be related to past ablation. It is either a repetition of the same situation or a pelvic infection of upper reproductive organs. You need to do a colposcopy, pap smear, vaginal smear and maybe an ultrasound to determine the cause of pain and discharge.

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