Welcome to ehealthforum.
A lot of discharge or increase in discharge along with bad odor is a sign of infection. Follow the advice given at ER and visit a gynecologist at the earliest to go ahead with further examination and investigations to confirm and identify the infection and get started on treatment. The ovarian cysts will need an ultrasound scan to confirm the number and size. If they are more in number and big in size, the abdominal swelling or distension can be attributed to the presence of ovarian cysts.
Take care.
