Hi lovely ladies,
I'd love to have some advice with regards to an upcoming doctors appointment.
I booked this appointment myself as I have had a number of changes that I want to get to the bottom of, as well as some symptoms that I have seemingly ignored the last few years.
I've put my changes down to hormones and perhaps my levels are off but I am also aware of the symptoms for cc and want to put my mind at rest with my doctor.
My symptoms are as follows and have seemed progressively worse the past few months:
Bleeding during and after sex, with what can only be described as a pinching feeling during sex. The last time I bled for 5 days after. Spotting between periods; constipation; nightsweats,(I am soaking the bedsheets on a regular occasion); lower back pain and worsening periods.
I know a number of things could be causing my symptoms but is there any way that I can ask for a smear? I'm not due my next smear for another 2 months but would prefer not to wait. Will they have to take bloods first before anything else? I just have a bad feeling that things have changed - and I've already been waiting for my appointment for 3 weeks as the surgery is overstretched. I am so thankful for the NHS and god bless those that work for them - I just do not want this to be overlooked and wondering whether they will even consider looking at my cervix at my first appointment.
My last smear was in August 2016 and all was ok ( this was 6 months before turning 25)
