Hello, I’m Katie, 27 , i have a 3 year old and i’m a single mum and suffer from health anxiety which has become severe since having chlamydia last year.
Back story is - clear smear in 2013.
I had unprotected sex last april and started to have red/brown discharge few days before period and increased ovulation pain that lasted weeks…i developed severe health anxiety and had panic attacks
I went for swabs and an abdominal scan, which was fine - no cysts etc
I was told i had chlamydia in sep 15 which was treated and was tested negative for it 2 months later…
However, my symptoms have continued (the brown discharge before period, pain and irregular periods) I’ve also had mild discomfort with sex once. No bleeding after or in-between periods tho.
I do have lots of pain in my lower ab, back , down my legs thats been constant all month…
I am so so scared I have cervical cancer and the doctors don’t seem concerned (my mum died of breast cancer so my anxiety stems from this)
I had swabs again and she said my cervix looked ok, but it came back i had thrush…so i was treated for that in Jan.
I have just had a normal blood test.
They’ve referred me to a gyno but app isn’t till end of march. my anxiety and worry won’t go away.
I am so fed up. I feel like paying for a smear test myself because I can’t leave this until october!!
The anxiety is controlling my life and ruining it.
What could this be? its not chlamydia…i google all the time which i know is bad and not helping. it can’t be PID cos that would’ve shown on the blood test? is it hpv? is it changing cells? i’m so scared
Does anyone have any advice?
Thanks in advance x
