New here and quite anxious.
I have been experiancing pain during intercourse and some very light bleeding afterwards, literally just a spot on the tissue after going the toilet straight after then nothing else. No cramping after or pain, only during.
I went to my docotor as I was expriancing some lower back pain on my right side accompanied by some right lower pelvic pain. She did an internal exam and said she could feel anything out of the ordinary. I told her about the pain during intercourse and the light bleeding and said I would like to have a smear.
Because I'm below the legal age she has reffered me to a gynecologist in our local hospital. She said she would do a more thorough exam as well as an ultra sound on my pelvis. My pelvic pain and back pain have no subsided, concincidently right after my examination from my GP.
I got a letter through after booking my appoitment (I will just add it wasn't pointed out to me by my GP I would be having a colposcopy) with the gynecologistand and a leaflet about a colposcopy came with it, a long with a letter confiming the procedure.
Quite nervous about it considering I've never had a smear before. Also worried because my doctor must have been quite concerned to refer me for one.
Any advice of smiliar situations (or not!) would be greatly appreciated. Does it hurt? I have had a cystoscopy before, around 2 years ago and this was extremely painful for me. I know they are completely different however this has now made me even more anxious about anything down there.
All advice welcome.
