I'm waiting for my smear and swabs, Dr told me to make a double appointment with the nurse. Nearest appointment is the 6th of August.
So a little bit of history, in 2009 I had severe bleeding and was passing clots the size of grapefruits, I was admitted to gynae and the first evening I collapsed and ended up having 4 blood transfusions. I was in hospital for 4 days and they never found out whjat caused it. It eased off the night before they were going to take m down to theatre to try and see what was going on. Anyway things seemed to go back to my usual meduim flow, I had a daufgter in 2011 and the last year or so muy periods have been really heavy. Thy tried me on the pill but it really messed up with my mood so I came off it. Fast forward to 3 weeks ago, I was on day 3 of my period, the usual heaviness, but then I soaked through a super tampon in less than 10 mins, then I put in a super plus and a pad and was soaked in 30 mins. Then I started to pass lasrge clots again, just bigger than a golf ball size. This went on for about an hour befoer I called out of hours. Saw a dr and since it had started to ease off she sent me home to monitor it. I'm a lesbian and I've been with my partner for over a year and a half, I've started bleeding after sex, a week and a half ago I had bloody discharge that continued for a day after sex.
I saw one of the GP's after the very heavy bleeding who did a couple of swabs but she couldn't reach my cervix and she has referred me for an ultrasound. Still no news on that. I went back again on Monday to make her aware I was still bleeding after sex and thats when she told me to book in for a smear and other swabs, I'm not sure what kind of swabs. I'm also now back on Iron tablets as I'm anaemic again. For the past two months Its been taking me between 5-15 minutes to pass urine, its actually something I haven't mentioned to the dr but I'm going back to see the decent one tomorrow so will mention it then. I have a few other health problems that cause chronic pain. I don't get pain during sex but afterwards I've had pain in my lower back and felt crampy
I am totally terrified, I've been trying to distract myself and tell myself that this could all be caused by something simple but all I can think about is cervical cancer, I am so so scared. I'm going back to my dr tomorrow because I am so anxious and down about all of this. And the waiting is driving me crazy
Sorry this has been so long I just on't know what else to do
