Blood in discharge

Hello,

I am 36 years old and today I found bright red blood in my discharge and it’s sent me into a panic thinking it could be something serious (cancer). I recently had my smear test in April and it all come back clear and I finished my period 9 days ago (my period lasts 3-4 days). I also like to note I haven’t had intercourse for few months so it couldn’t be that. I do intend on making an appointment. Just wondering has it happened to anyone else? I am so stressed out over it, feel like I can’t talk to anyone about it, I always think worse case scenario.

Siobhan.

Hello if you had a smear in April and was clear that means you don’t have hpv therefore you are not at risk for cervical cancer, there is many other things that can explain irregular bleeding not just cancer please stop thinking the worst, like you say make appointment with GP to get some answers. Take care and good luck
