I've just signed up to this forum after working myself into a tizz.
Yesterday after a routine visit to the GUM clinic I mentioned that I'd been having some irregular bleeding and pain during sex. The nurse didn't seem overly concerned until she put the speculum in. She popped her head out the door to get a Doctor who upon looking at my cervix said it was "distorted" and had "clear abnormalities"
She did me a smear there and then (I was shocked as I'm only 23) and also called through for a fast track colposcopy at the same time.
As I was leaving I thanked her and she said "you really needed it done"
I'm an anxious person at the best of times but know it isn't standard if you're under 25 & the fact something could be seen by the naked eye has worked me up too!
I suppose I'm looking for reassurance of some sorts, I've got a 5 year old little boy and instantly convince myself everything is the worst case.. All the time haha.
Sorry for rambling a bit!
