Im new on here but thought Id ask for advice as I feel really let down by my GP and confused what to do.
I'm 21 years old and had my first smear test in November 2012. In late December, following a bout of illnesses including colds and cystitis, I woke up one morning feeling quite ill and noticed I was bleeding down below (It was not time for my period) this continued for several weeks and I realised it was too heavy to be put down to cystitis and realised it was vaginal bleeding. Also in late December i got my smear results which showed mild dyskaryosis. Although the inter-menstrual bleeding became much lighter and eventually went away, I bled after everytime I had sex and missed my period that month. I also developed increased amount of yellowy smelly discharge.
The ill feeling returned one morning in January accompanied by heavier bleeding (although this only lasted a couple of days). Naturally I was worried, so consulted my doctor. He advised me to take a pregnancy test and get tested for all STI's.. everything came back negative. My GP then decided he needed to do an internal examination on me (but did not use a speculum) which he found statisfactory and told me he was happy but if I was still concerned, to go to my local GUM clinic.
Well, it is near impossible to get a doctors appointment at the local GUM clinic and as my exams were looming and my symptoms eased slightly, I decided to leave it and wait and see what my repeat smear test would show. Although it was always at the back of my mind and have worried ever since and it has had a real impact on my ability to want to be intimate with my boyfriend.
In early June, I had my repeat smear test. Following this, I missed a period this month as well, but took a pregnancy test on the final day that my period should have come; this was negative but I have not taken one since. I returned to my doctor today for a repeat contraceptive prescription and asked for the results for the repeat smear which came back as severe dyskaryosis, he just said to come back in 6 months! The last 6 months have been agonising waiting and hoping for a clear result, now this is worse than the last, I am still bleeding after sex and he says to just come back in December? According to the National guidelines I should have a gynae referral for my symptoms alone if they persist after 2 months?!
Feeling a bit stuck and worried! Can any of you offer me advice? x
