I am new to this site and feel like a wimp because everyone has far more difficult issues but I guess I just need some reassurance. I suffer from severe health anxiety and am on meds for it. Anyway... to cut a long story short - I tried to stop my meds last year and live without them. I felt depressed, cried all the time and generally fell apart. Anyway ... I went for my smear (after four years - not three) and it came back with mild Dyskaryosis - the day afterwards I started my period two weeks early and it lasted for six days, not five. I wonder if that is just caused by stress or a symptom of cervical cancer. They have only asked me to come back in six months for a repeat smear. Does anyone think I need to worry? I also smoke and am trying desperately to stop.
