I went to a fertility doc yesterday as we were trying for our final baby and it wasn’t happening. She advised that my smear was well overdue and had I had anything unusual going on?
Well I have been having pain during sex on and off since beginning of last year, loads (I mean loads) of watery discharge - I went to gp in December who put me on antibiotics for infection but the results were all clear. Last four months I have been spotting on and off through the month which I have never had. I put it down to hormones being off and had a blood test a few weeks ago that showed all was normal.
Anyway, I hadn’t put all these things together until she asked me yesterday my daughter had life saving surgery (age 11) in January and I just…ignored what was going on with me.
So that is the rant over with, questions to follow:
I had a smear yesterday as well as loads of swabs to check for infection(again?!). I bled during smear which has not happened before and doc was concerned about the level of discharge because I have just finished my period.
Would the smear definitely pick something up or should I ask for a colposcopy?
I didn’t go to her because I thought I had cancer…I went because (for some reason) we weren’t falling pregnant. I hadn’t thought my symptoms were odd until she gave me that look…but now everything seems a bit off.
So, to wait and see or go see gp and explain my concerns??
Any replies gratefully received xx
