I've had irregular bleeding for a while now, particularly after sex and also between periods. My periods have always been heavy and irregular but changes in my body recently are sounding alarm bells.
I feel bloated a lot, I feel as though I've put on a lot of weight in a short time, and my overall health is suffering. I have a recurring pain in my right thigh that is like a constant ache and is keeping me up, and I have a dull pain in my lower back that, while not excruciating, is always there and despite my best efforts, I can't get rid of.
I recently had a smear test at my GP, and the results have come back negative (normal). While this is a relief, I can't help worrying that the results are inaccurate, as my GP said she could not see the cervix at all, but that she'd take swabs anyway.
Has anyone else had a similar experience? I'm 22 and quite concerned.
Thank you x
