21 years ago I was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukaemia, I was treated with chemo a total body radiation.
This sent me in to menopause at the age of 25 and I was put on to HRT to protect my bones.
I am now 46 and have been off HRT for a few years now but over the last few months I have been spotting on and off.
The spotting not hard to miss as I have not menstrated since my mid 20's.
Today I went for my smear and swabs were taken, but the nurse said she could see ectropion which could be the cause of my spotting.
After googling ectropion (cervical erosion) I found a link to a topic on this website - http://www.jostrust.org.uk/node/2715
I have no firm diagnosis of anything just yet but this seems the best place to ask for advice, so I hope nobody minds me posting here.
From what I have read on line I understand that ectropion in most cases effects those with high oestrogen levels - the young
snd the pregnant and those on HRT. As I have been off HRT for some years I am none of these.
I just wanted to know if anyone post menopause has been told they have ectropoin?
