Abdominal pain
Dear Doc,
I experienced severe abdominal pain last night. I am currently on day six of my cycle and still bleeding. Normally I bleed for 5 days and only have a brown discharge on day6. I also experienced a lot of pain during intercourse last night. I had a laparotomy in April and no endo were found. Will a pap smear be able to pick up the cause of the pain.

A pap smear will not pick up the cause of the pain. As this seems to be a longstanding problem, I would suggest that you see your gynaecologist again.
