Hi there. I have had heavy post coital bleeding so went to locum GP who took some swabs for STD’s and other infections and could see my cervic had visible eruption. Others symptoms include heavy discharge, abdominal pain, moodswings - feeling hormonal, tired all the time, heavy periods, spotting.
GP would not take a smear nor refer me onwards.
I have had the same partner for over 21 yrs and expect all tests to come back negative. But in 1998 had a loop diathermy to remove precancerous cells after my first smear (CIN2/3). All my smears have been fine since but I am very aware of the links made by many organisations (including Macmillan) to cervical eruption and CC.
I am also aware that there is no visible difference - so feel worried that I am not being tested for CC.
I’m not sure what to do next - other than wait for my STD results?
CIN 2/3 1998 - Loop Diathermy age 21
MAR 2015 - Clear smear
Nov 2015 Bleeding
Jan 2016 No smear allowed
