This may be long, please bare with me.
Maybe in the summer of last year I noticed a small amount of bleeding after sex, pink streaks when wiping. Then I didn’t notice it for a long time. Earlier this year it happened often, not always every time but for the most part. And it was always a very slight pink amount when wiping after sex.
In August I needed a new pap to get a new script for birth control because I switched doctors. I had been noticing more discharge than normal and pelvic cramping almost non stop (mild, not severe) so I needed a checkup anyhow. My next smear wasn’t due until December so it was a few months early. When getting to the doctor she said I had cervicitis. She did the pap. The pap came back normal within a few days. I also had bv and some other bacteria show. So I was given antibiotics. A week or more later I started having symptoms of uti so went to an urgent care and got antibiotics for that. I was still having symptoms of bv and pelvic cramping persistently so I made an appointment with an OBGYN. She did an exam and said my cervix was “looking normal” and gave me a stronger antibiotic to take. They also did a pelvic ultrasound for the pain which came back fine. (Second pelvic ultrasound to come back normal) So weeks passed and I noticed some discharge pretty much everyday. I’m not sure if it was my normal or not because I’m not aware of paying much attention to it. So I called my GYN and she said the discharge was normal especially for someone on birth control. Over the last few months I’ve also noticed that my periods are shorter and I notice more clear stuff mixed with blood. My doctor said this is fine, and my body is not a robot. I have really bad health anxiety. And a couple of times since then I have noticed the very small amount of pink discharge after intercourse. Almost like a streak. And I got so paranoid I checked my own cervix and can feel a small bump on the right edge of my cervix. Should I be so upset over this? Should I go back again? Does a pelvic ultrasound detect cervical cancer that has spread? I’m so worried. I have rough health anxiety so I’m just not sure if it’s just me or if I should go back. I just really need some advice. Is it normal to cramp a little after sex/cervical stimulation? I’m so scared they’re just missing something. But then because of my anxiety, I doubt it. For those that read all of this, I appreciate you so much.
