I posted in the old Jo's forum after being freaked out at my last smear. A lovely lady responded to me.
I had my last smear just over 2 years ago, when the nurse took it she said don't be surprised if you are called back, it looks as if you have slight Dsykariosis. Anyway, I was lucky, the smear came back normal, I would be lying if I said I had forgotten totally but I was reassured that there can be many reasons for redness of the cervix. I had come off of the pill fairly recently.
My hubbie had a vasectomy nearly 2 years ago. I am 40 and since I came off of the pill I have had incredibly heavy periods (my sister suffers the same), she has been checked as our matenal grandmother died from womb cancer.
I don't think it's every time (although the days and weeks blur) but 2-3 times that we have had sex in the last few months I have had a slight pink tinge afterwards (not bleeding) it has gone by the next morning. I have always assumed (due to timings) it is a show of my period due within a few days but I have never paid much attention. I have no pain, the odd twinge but nothing more.
I have an appointment booked with the nurse tomorrow but am slightly concerned, is this bleeding after sex? I am not sure even if it is me, maybe it is hubbie! Does anyone have advice?
