Symptons

Hi everyone, just wanted to post on here due to some symptoms I have been having and to hear about others experiences with this. For about a year and a half I have been bleeding most of the time after sex. I have been ignoring these symptons (I know I shouldnt) until last week when I saw a doctor. She did an internal examination and said my cervix look enlarged which is probably what is causing the problem and referred me to a gynaecologist. I have also been lower back pain which has become more frequent in the last couple of months. I have read both of these are symptoms of CC and the referral to the gynaecologist can take up to eighteen weeks so getting worried about waiting that long when I have already waited so long to see a doctor! Did anyone else have these symptoms which turned out to be something else?! Also how long did you have to wait for a gynaecologist appointment from referral? Appreciate any responses.
