Is milky discharge after sex a sign of cervical cancer?

My girlfriend is always passing out milky stuff with bad odour after five or six days after we had sex. We tested for gonohrea and other STDs but falls negetive. Could it be a sign of cervical cancer?
Cervical cancer usually doesn’t cause that kind of discharge, so that’s not something you need to worry about. It’s a good thing that she’s ruled out those STDs – especially if you guys have had sex without a condom, but it sounds like another conversation with a doctor or nurse is a good idea.
In general it’s okay for vaginal discharge to have a clear or white color to it that may look “milky,” but if there’s a very bad odor that could be a sign of an infection.
