I’ve recently had some smelly discharge-so today I called GP for a check up. She has offered me an appointment for Friday but over the phone she asked if I had been having bladder trouble. I have - but had not once considered them related. So of course after hanging up I got onto Dr Google. And my symptoms lead me cervical cancer. And I was shocked to discover I have more symptoms---- lower back pain, pain/discomfort during sex, changes to my once very regular periods, spotting between periods.
The bladder issues I always assumed were post birth problems. The rest I put down to copper coil related symptoms -so I haven’t seen the Dr about them. However now thinking about it, they have all come along at the same time… within last few months. Whilst they could be unrelated I can’t help but feel epically nervous about my appointment right now!
