Hi guys so this is my first ever post & im just looking for some reasurrance! I had my first smear test done 12 days ago. Iv had one done slightly earlier than normal as after going to the docs for about a year they finally Gave in! I saw a locum doctor Id never seen before and described my symptoms to her (been to the docs almost every month since I had my youngest 18 months ago) irregular periods, very heavy To the point im having to change every 2-3 hours and often leaked, a hell of a lot of cramping & pain with each period (once my oh almost took me to A&E as I couldn't stand up without doubling over crippled with pain) and bleeding between periods & after sex.So she sent me for an ultrasound, which I had an internal that showed either a filling defect in the womb lining, a thickening of the womb lining, or a polyp/fibroid/mass in the womb lining. I went back to see the doc the day after my scan & they referred me to gynae & sorted out my smear.
I went for my smear 3 days after my period finished & they said this was okay. She started doing it & said I had bled but that it was normal, however when I got up & dressed I was bleeding a fair bit & she had to get me a pad. I went home & took some paracetamol & thought that was that. But the problem is iv not stopped bleeding since then! Like full blown mid fli period, bright red blood with some clots! I went back to the doc after 7 days & she said it wasn't normal so did an internal. She said my cervix was inflammed on one side & she would chase up my referal with the Gynae & put me on norethisterone to stop the bleeding (which it hasn't!!)
So so I got my app from gynae on fri and its come through As an emergency app for this tues! I'm now worried sick! I'm still bleeding a lot, the cramps are intense & my stomach gets so bloated by late afternoon I look like I'm 6 months pregnant!!
so so I guess I'm after some reassurrance & to see if this has happened to anyone else??
