Sorry if I am posting in the wrong forum but I am looking for some advice as I am worrying myself sick...
I am 28, had my first smear test when I was 25, it came back abnormal and was told I had a cyst, they asked if it caused me any problems day to day or during sex. It didnt. I was told to go back after 6 months for another smear... I never went... I know this is wrong.
I have been on the pill since I was 16 and am currently on noriday which is a mini pill so I do not have a period. This has been since August 2013.
I have had 2 mis carriages (they were not planned and concieved while on the pill)
My Mum was diagonised with breast cancer in October and has just start Chemo, she was told that the type of breast cancer she has can be genetic and linked to cerival/overian and breast cancer. My Mums sister died 11/12 year ago of cancer and was previously diagonised with Ovarian cancer. This scared me when my mums nurse said they could all be linked.
The first thing I did was book in for a smear, they said it has come back inconclusive due to an infection and they gave me canesten and said it was thrush. For the last few weeks I have been feeling 'different' down there... I have had what I thought was thrush and I now have a flesh like pink discharge most days, there is also a smell that isnt me... Sorry this is really embarrassing for me to type this... They said I need to go back in 3 months for another smear...
I of course have googled it and the pages I got back was saying the above along with pelvic or back pain & pain during sex (both of which I get) are symptons of cervial cancer.
I called my GP today to book an apt as the 'smell' and general feeling down below is getting me down and I can not get an apt until the 2nd April.
Can anyone else give me any details on symptons they had or was your diagonises picked up through a smear?
I am really worried and feel really lonely, I cant talk to my Mum about it as she is going through cancer her self and it would bring her down, my Fiancee is amazing but very positive and wont even listen to the possibility of cancer until I have seen a doc...
