I went to see my GP last week as I have been having some erratic and heavy menstral bleeding over the last three months. I also have some pelvic pain, and actually thought I might have a ovarian cyst or similar.
The Dr quite rightly gave me a good telling off for being out of date with my smears and told me to come back when I'd had one. SO, I made an appointment with the nurse for later the same afternoon.
When I saw the nurse, and she tried to take the smear, there was a lot of contact bleeding, and she believed that she could see / feel a growth/lump the size of a rasberry on my cervix. She told me to make an urgent appointement to see the GP.
Saw GP on thursday, who did a thorough examination of my cervix. No lump/growth seen. However - she says that there is an area of my cervix that doesn't look right - she called it an "abnormal lesion" and believes that the lump the nurse felt was actually a blood clot from that site.
Dr has referred me for an urgent colposcopy (within two weeks apparently) so now I am waiting... and panicking!!
I would be so grateful of any insight / advice / shared expreience. I am terrified.
Sorry, I know I've gone on abit , if you are still reading - Thank you!!
