i am new to the site but have read through so much that has helped reassure me.
I recently attended my local GP for my 3 year smear test. Whilst I was there I mentioned to the nurse that I have currently been having the following symptoms:
- irregular bleeding
- pain during and after intercourse (pain felt deep in my belly)
- bleeding during and after intercourse
- very painful lower backpain
- general feeling of something not right down there.
Nurse starts to examine me and says that my cervix is tilted?? Never heard of this before, is this a problem?
She also cannot insert the speculum in me as my muscles were pushing it out, she tried 4 different ones but no luck. This will be my 3rd smear so I know what happens and have successfully had them completed Fine. Although she did mention that I was very red and inflamed.
Anyay nurse says I'm sorry I can't so this I'm now referring you to the hospital for a colposcopy and for them to do my smear.
im worried the nurse seen something not right down there and hence the referral, given my symptoms too I am worried sick of what it could be.
i think I'm just after a friendly ear to vent too as I dont know what to do at the min or what to think.
