    Q. A 21-year-old patient complains of clear vaginal discharge, which usually occurs midcycle. On examination the vaginal pH is 4. The wet mount and "whiff test" are negative. Which of the following would you expect to find on examination?

    A "cottage cheese" like discharge in the vagina.
    A fishy odor.
    Vaginal condyloma.
    The sqamocolumnar junction 1cm outside the external os (ectropion).
    Petechiae on the vaginal mucosa and cervix (strawberry cervix).

    Cervical ectropion can be associated with excessive but non-purulent vaginal discharge due to the increased surface area of columnar epithelium containing mucus-secreting glands.
