New to this, but I decided that instead of waiting around in silence I would join this forum where I could read what other people have to say and be able to have some support.
I'm 20 years old and noticed that I started bleeding after intercourse, this had never happened with any other partner so went to the doctor to see whether she could decide what was going on, she did a test on me for STD's etc, all clear so she did an examination which she wasn't sure about so I got referred to the treatment centre in Nottingham
Booked my appointment which seemed like a world away and I wasn't sure whether to cancel it as I wasn't having the appointment anymore. My partner was less than helpful throughout all of this and didn't offer himself to come or didn't seem overly concerned about the whole thing. My best friend (also a guy) offered to come, I didn't tell my partner. Turns out he overslept anyway.
I got there and wasn't really sure what was going to happen. No information had been given to me at all. I was called inside and interviewed by the consultant and then told me she was going to do an examination. I thought it would be similar to what they did at the doctors - how wrong I was. Turns out I was gonna have a colposcopy and I didn't even know so couldn't really prepare myself. Would have been nice to have someone there after all. She said after that there was some cells which she was unhappy with and so was going to remove some and get them tested.
She then explained that I would have to cough and she would get these cells out. The first one was relatively painless, the second hurt so so much and i felt them cut it off of my cervix. I was painful and I cried out. The nurses were lovely and kept me calm though even though I was chatting complete rubbish to them.
My boyfriend wasn't happy with me telling my best friend about it and said he wasn't comfortable with me telling people which was rich coming from him considering he didn't bother to take an interest. In a way it's made me begin to resent him for not caring enough.
Afterwards they gave me a sheet of paper and told me to sit down for a bit and then I could go. The sheet of paper said I had a biopsy, I didn't even know because i'm not educated on this sort of thing, it freaked me out completely because I thought it was just some sort of procedure. The sheet said they would write to me within 4 weeks. Only issue is that this was while im at uni so I've had to wait for my results while i'm at home so I can't even check my mail box
I rang my doctors a few days before christmas exactly 3 and a half weeks after the biopsy and they hadn't had anything either. This wait is killing me. I told my mum and she hasn't been sleeping because she's been worried and that get's to me, if anything I just feel like a nuisance. The treatment centre said they couldn't tell me the results over the phone either.
Can anyone also tell me what sort of biopsy I had?
