I used this website and Forum two years ago when I had CIN3 post smear and had Lletz to remove - had six monthly check up in Jan 2016 which was normal smear and negative HPV so was put back on 3 year recall.
However in the last few months I have been experiencing some sporadic brown discharge after sex - not all the time, but often enough. I sort of ignored it to start with and kept an eye on it as thought it was due to my period (take the mini pill and never have regular periods and they are always just brown discharge). Eventually went to GP a couple of weeks ago - she looked at my cervix and said all looked normal so have been referred for colposcopy to have more of a look. Not looking forward to that but know it is the right thing to do - appointment in just over two weeks time (it was a non-urgent referral).
Just wondered if anyone had comments in general about brown discharge after sex (which GP said is old blood so it is counted as bleeding)?
Also if I was HPV negative a year and a half ago, can I be positive now? Surely not enough time to develop CIN3 or worse?
Thoughts/reassurance please! I found hte whole experience horrid last time although physically I coped well, mentally it was hard.
I am 45 and don't have children
