What did the culture of the discharge show?
A culture is different test than Pap test and urine test. In this the discharge is sent to lab, where growth of various organisms is seen on different mediums. This identifies any type of bacterial growth and also tells (if the bacteria grow), which antibiotic would be most efficacious against the bacteria. The discharge should also be sent for the microscopic examination to see, if there are any abnormal cells. Another important investigation would be to take the vaginal scraping to look under the microscope. These tests should be able to point to the cause and direction of treatment protocol.
