Please understand its all confusing for me. Im a simple 22 year old mum of 3. Youngest is 22 months- problems started after birth. Due to anxiety and depression i struggle to go doctors meaning theres months between appointments. I also have prolapse grade 1 incase its relevent (although seperate symptoms).
My symptoms are periods 2 weekly- spotting inbetween, sharp pain going toilet both ways, always getting thrush, days of heavyness, always some type of discharge, pain using tampons, pain after intercorse, bleeding after intercorse.. most of these are daily life so its becoming normal! (Could be a few forgotton too!)
January 17 i went gynocologist after doctor finding a lump in dec 2016 when i was complaining of bleeding. At gyno appointment she said i have cervical ecrosion and 'burnt' the cells- symptoms should clear.
August 17- i went back to the doctors as symptoms was worse. One hour im bleeding alot, next hour nothing. One minute its only in my pee, next minute its in my discharge.. so i went back and got told i have low self asteem and maybe i need councilling.
October 17- i plucked up the courage to go back and she removed my coil in hope that helps. I was meant to be checked over down below.. unfortunetly it took 4 painful attempts to get the speculum inserted, i was in tears- the coil was removed and off came her gloves. No cervical check over. After i asked why it was so painful, she answered 'have you suffered any injuries or been sexually abused?'... i replied no, left and booked back in with the original nice doctor to speak about this appointment.
My gut is telling me somethings wrong. Iv spent many months passing it off.. doctors aint being helpful with answers. Is it worth paying for a private smear? Will that tell me if i do or dont? I have no body to ask :(
