Irregularity in the menstrual cycles is most likely due to the presence of polycystic ovaries. Excessive vaginal discharge is seen in many conditions; the specific feature of cervical cancer is post coital bleeding and people with many vaginal deliveries, multiple sexual partners and unhealthy cervix are at risk. You may have to rule out vaginal infections as well. Get a trans-vaginal sonography, a pap smear and get treated for your hypothyroid state as well as PCOD. Please consult your doctor for further suggestions. Good luck.

OBGYN Dr. Nilofer AR's  Response

Thanks for the query,

I would be able to answer better if you can reveal your age.
Anyways, Excessive foul smelling vaginal discharge could be due to vaginal infection.

I recommend you to get a swab test to diagnose cause of vaginal infection.
A pap smear to rule out inflammatory cervical conditions.
Colposcopic guided biopsy to rule out malignancy if pap and colposcopy is abnormal.
Report to doctor if vaginal discharge is blood tinged.

Hope this helps,
Dr Nilofer
