Please give some advice
I recently had quite a bad infection and the doctor prescribed some antibiotics that did not clear it. She did a papsmear and found an infection that she said needed another antibiotic that the broad antibiotic did not cover. It seems like the infection is gone, but the question is this: this month my period is quite heavy with lots of clots. Also yesterday (my fifth day) I noticed a dull pain where I guess my right ovary is. Also, I noticed some discharge mixed with my period. I never have my period for more then 3 days, and yesterday I was still bleeding heavily on my 5th day. My doctor says it could just be the infection. Do you agree? And could I have been ovulating yesterday? (I usually get this dull pain on the day I ovulate).

Infection can cause a heavy period, so it is quite possibley related to this. You would not expect to ovulate on Day 5 of your cycle, though this is possible. The pain is more likely to be related to the period and the changes in the uterus associated with this.
