Not sure if I'm just getting worried over nothing, but here goes...
Last night after sex I started cramping and bleeding, but it then disappeared. This has never really happened before - although I have cervical erosion and I sometimes have a bit of bloody discharge after sex, it usually clears up pretty quickly.
When I woke up this morning I had full-on cramps and I've been bleeding non-stop all day. It's like a period with cramps and a heavy feeling in the legs, but the blood is bright red and not like a normal period for me. My period is due in 9 days and this is the second bleed I've had this month - my period was 5 days early at the beginning of the month.
I went to see the doctor, who was very reassuring and told me to monitor the situation and book in for a smear test, which I'm due for.
At my last smear three years ago, I was attended to by a nurse who was training, who visibly freaked out when she saw my cervix and asked her supervisor to come in. She also seemed surprised and asked what pill I was taking and whether I'd had any kids... I wasn't taking the Pill at the time and haven't had and children. She didn't exactly allay my fears, but the smear came back clear, so I guess it was OK??
I'm just really worried that something was missed last time round and I have something to worried about. Has anyone had a similar experience?
Thanks for your help!
