Recently had first smear at 26 (should have had it a full year ago, feel awful about that...) that showed mild diskaryosis and low grade squamous intraepithelial lesion.
I also have symptoms: pain during sex and bleeding post sex. I only realised after my smear test that these were symptoms of cervical cancer. I've always problems with pain during sex, sex has always been difficult so I always thought I had vaginismus. I've only really been able to have sex properly in the last couple of years and that's when the bleeding has started.
I've been referred to a gynaecologist anyway but it'll take at least 2 months to get an appointment. I'm just so worried because post-coital bleeding seems to be such a strong warning of cancer. I've also convinced myself I've had leg pains in the last few days.
Has anyone been through something similar?
