Hope this is the right place, I did the wrong thing & consulted Dr Google & have completely freaked myself out!
I'm 24 & I had my first smear test yesterday, I will say that my nurse was so lovely, made me feel really comfortable & the test itself was over in a minute, I felt no pain (just for anyone worried about their first one!). The nurse said everything looked fine but it will take 4-6 weeks for my results & I am a massive worrier!
I'm worried because 3 years ago I had a lot of bleeding in between my periods & intense pelvic pain, as I was 22 at the time, they didn't do a smear test, I had swabs & a scan of my ovaries. Everything came back fine, the doctor put the pain down to possible IBS & the bleeding down to taking the pill. The pain eased off & I came of the pill & had & continue to have very regular periods. The past six weeks I have had really intense pelvic (worse than before), lower back pain & two days of light spotting after my periods. My big fear is that they missed something 3 years ago & now it would be advanced. Would be so grateful for any advice about this, sorry for all the information!
