Hi everyone, I'm looking for some advise please if anyone has experienced similar problems.
I've had heavy periods and bleeding inbetween for over a year now. Sometimes the bleeding last just one day, other times it can be a week. Lately I'm bleeding more than I'm not bleeding. Even when I'm not bleeding I have a constant cramp type pain in my lower back.
I went to my GP 2 weeks ago and as my smear isn't due until June (my last one was 3 years ago and was ok) she didn't do one. She did do a vaginal check and asked my family history.
My sister had a tumour removed when she was my age after a smear test. Given that info my GP referred me for an urgent ultrasound scan which I had today. The Sonographer said there was something on my womb which was most likely a polyp. She said the info would be sent to my GP in 2/3 days and I'd then get an app. with Gynaecologist. I've called my GP who could access the scan and had also said it's just a poly and I'll get an app. to see a Consultant within 2 months.
I'm really worried that it's more than that and think 2 months seems quite long to wait.
I'm 44 years old and have 2 children - I appreciate that ladies on this page are dealing with actual diagnosises whilst I'm not. But I would really appreciate if anyone has had a similar experience as me as something just doesn't feel right to me. I did have precancerous cells treated but that was over 20 years ago.
