Hi everyone - I am hoping you will be able to help me! In 2010 I began to get some post coital bleeding which I went to the doctors about and after swabs for infection was told not to worry. This seemed to clear up, then in autumn last year I began to spot at the end of my monthly cycle. I am on the pill dianette for my skin. The spotting is like a browny discharge and comes pretty much every month a day or two before my last pill. I have been to my GP a couple of times again and again had infection swabs which all came back clear each time and again told not to worry. Because of my age (I am 24) I have never been offered a smear. Even though I am being told not to worry, the truth is I really am and it's in my nature to think the worst. I try to be positive but I get so anxious about my health and with this I don't know what to do. Today I saw a nurse who suggested switching the pill to see if that helps, but I just want someone definitively tell me what is going on because I really feel like it is affecting me in my daily life. That sounds so pathetic because it's just a bit of bleeding, but I have been dealing with this for nearly 3 years now and I am scared? I have also been getting mild twinges in my lower abdomen for about a month that come and go, kind of a shooting or electric shock type of pain. I am not sure if this is me being paranoid but it is frightening me and I can't stop thinking aboushall of the things this could be.
I am writing this because I feel like I don't know who else to talk to about it. I am really sorry if I sound silly as I know there are so many people on here who are going through awful things, but I hope someone can identify with the uncertainty and anxiety I am feeling and offer any kind of helpful words.
Thank you x
