Up until a few years ago I had regular screening but after my last test in June 09 (normal result) I didn't go back again.
Not sure why I didn't go back but I guess I was stupid. I had a late misscarriage in Aug 10 and another in Feb 11, whilst
in hospital to delivery my baby they discovered I had a polyp and due to complications that arose during the delivery they
removed the polyp whilst I was in theatre. Anyway, when I came round they explained what had happened etc.. and advised
I attended my next smear.. Now that is the thing.. I didn't go, I put it to the back of my mind and left it at that. Last month
I attended my med review and the nurse pointed out that I hadn't had my smear and I needed to have it done so I waited
until the right time in my cycle and I attended this morning! Now what has me worrying is I began bleeding the other day
so I googled and it came up with cervical cancer and its symptoms - and now I can't help but think every ache or pain is it.
This morning at my appointment the nurse struggled to find my cervix, in the end I had to lie on my side and cock my leg
up so she could get to it. It hurt and I am now bleeding and as you can imagine thinking the worse. I have 6 children and
really don't want to leave them without a mother especially because of my stupidity
