I'm really worried, I been referred to gynecology (I was originally told colposcopy) after several incidences of bleeding after sex.
I had CIN2 removed in June 2011 but have had clear smears since. When I started having this bleeding I went and got full std screening done. I'm in a long term relationship so it was merely to rule out infections. Anyway, all came back negative but I still keep having the bleeds. Its only ever after sex, and since I have mirena coil I don't have periods so any bleeding is unusual for me. I went back to the doctor as instructed. I had a very thorough (and painful) examination. Sometimes they find it hard to see my cervix and she was very forceful with the speculum. Anyway, she also pressed on my tummy and told me to cough. Then she told me she was putting in an urgent referral, that I needed to be seen within 2 weeks, and that I may have an ultrasound as well.
Even then I wasn't too worried. I've had 3 or 4 normal smear results so it couldn't be that bad. However the doctor called me later to tell me that my referral was going to gynecology instead, that they had made the appointment for me and that there was a letter waiting for me at reception. I collected the letter, and was horrified to read "if cancer is suspected the patient must be seen within 2 weeks".
I feel so stupid. I never even asked why she was referring me in the first place. Now I'm worried that they didn't get all the bad cells last time and that they've been there all this time. My mind is going into overdrive and all I can do is wait to see what happens.
