I have had issues bleeding after sex since I became sexually active about 4 years ago. After brushing it off for years I went to my GP in NL whilst I was still living abroad and they took a routine Pap smear (my first one). I got my results back & the results of an STD test and they were both totally normal but they said they’d refer me to a gynaecologist for further tests.
My GP in the UK said he wasn’t concerned it was something too serious but referred me for more testing at a hospital. I attended this on Friday thinking it would be another Pap smear. The doctor was incredibly dismissive, insensitive and I don’t feel I had informed consent about what was happening.
He ended up taking a swap and biopsy and then cauterised my cervix. He implied that was the ‘treatment’ to the issue but I’m really confused because I feel no clearer about what the issue is. Does anyone have any similar experiences of post coital bleeding/treatment via cauterisation ?
