I just want some reassurance that I am worrying about nothing!
Earlier this year (April), I had some brown discharge for the week after my period. This happened again a couple of times in May, so I took myself down to my GP, who examined me and took a swab.
She referred me on to a gynae and I decided to go private. When I went to see the gynae in June, he asked me about my periods, my pill (I'm on Ovranette) and did an internal examination, where he said my cervix looked a bit swollen. He also asked me about my smear (done Mar 2014) which came back normal. He said that the swab my GP had taken had shown that I had a lot of coliforms (?) in my vagina which are bacteria, and prescribed me two weeks of antibiotics.
Since completing my course of antibiotics in June, I have not had any further breakthrough bleeding/bleeding between periods. I went back today to the gynae for my follow up appointment and said that I hadn't had any more bleeding. He seemed satisfied and said to come back if anything else happened.
My question: should I be concerned that he didn't do another smear on me? Or that he didn't do another internal today at my follow up? I think I've just freaked myself out...the likelihood is that the bacteria irritated my cervix I suppose? If it were anything more serious/severe, would I be continiung to have symptoms?
Any views would be great,
