I am new here so here is some background. I started bleeding in Sept. 2012 and this was everyday so went to GP and had a smear in Nov 12. I was told the bleeding was probably caused by the coil so had that removed on Christmas Eve (didn’t stop the bleeding). Also got told my smear results had come back as abnormal and was referred for a Colposcopy and ultrasound.
Had my Colp in Jan 13 and was told that it was probably CIN3 but it had spread the walls of the vagina. He said this would have to be removed under GA. In Feb 13 I had my op and told I would receive my results by letter and thought the bleeding would stop and that would be it. The letter never came and the bleeding didn’t stop!
I finally had my 6 month colp on Tuesday and explained that I hadn’t stopped bleeding and that on my periods it was so bad I passed out. As soon as I am in the chair the woman (not my consultant) said are you on your period eeerrrrr no I just told you I bleed all the time! Anyway she tried to do the exam but as soon as she touched the cervix it started bleeding and then she tried to swab inside the canal and boy did that hurt! My consultant comes in and some fast medical language is thrown about and she says I need to take a biopsy. There was me thinking a small punch thing. Nope a massive chunk 2cm long and nearly 2cm deep and then she cauterized it.
My consultant asked if my family was complete or if I was planning more children. His body language was totally different to last time where he put me fully at ease and now I am panicking that there is something they are not telling me. I am now waiting for the results in a daze and in the meantime am still bleeding.
Sorry that is so long. I guess what I am wondering is if anyone has had a similar situation? I have never been told if I have HPV either so that has worried me.
Thanks for reading. Good luck to all!
