I'm not normally one for talking about my problems but after extensive internet searches and scaring myself to death i feel i need a little reassurance. I have been seeing a specialist for problems down below since 2011 when it was discovered that my ex boyfriend had given me an STI. I had treatment for it and then went back for a checkup and after an examination the doctor told me that i had a little bit of thrush but it would go away.
I have been with my boyfriend for over 3 years now and for the past 2 years i have had nothing but problems. I have had many symptoms of cervical cancer and have been to see a nurse and she has done swabs but they have all come back fine. I have been on the injection for approximately the same time and after telling my nurse about all of my problems she tried to refer me to see a councellor and told me that it was all psychological - i did not see how bleediing after sex was due to cognitive functions! So when my next injection was due i asked for a doctor to administer it. when i arrived i told her of my problems and she offered to examine me. She said i looked healthy but there may be a slight erosion. I told her of my past and she advised me to get in touch with the specialist again. Because this was longer than 6 months ago i had to go back to the doctors for a referral. I saw a lovely female doctor who examine me again and her face said it all during the examination. She said i had a really bad erosion and that i didnt look too healthy down there and referred me straight away. She told me that i will probably have something frozen? Does anybody know what this entails? As you can imagine i have been panicking about cervical cancer, i am guessing it is a typical reaction, but every doctor i have seen has refused to give me a smear as i am only 21. I know changes happen at my age, but these symptoms have been going on for years now and nobody has done anything about it. Not only this, i have been under a specialist because i have bowel problems, i have had a sigmoidoscopy and that came back all clear but i have diarrhea more than normal people and i can go to the toilet to urinate up to 30 times a day. The eventually said that it seems i have IBS and to stay away from carbs. i feel as though i was just pushed away. at one point, due to abdominal pains, i was given a steroid injection into my stomach - but again i was pushed away from that.
I feel as though nobody is listening to me. I do not feel right in myself. I am losing sleep over this so much. Even if i do just have an erosion on my cervix what will happen?
I apologise for the long message.
