Hello ladies! I haven't posted here before but needed to just write this down and get some advice. I hope you don't mind - I haven't been diagnosed with anything and feel abit of a fraud here, but hoping to reach put to anyone who is or has been in the same boat.
I have had some strange things happening with my period , mostly noticeable over the past 6 months. I've been bleeding for longer - usually 2/3 weeks at a time, usually only having a weeks break between periods. I've also bleeding after sex. It is usually there a few hours later or the next morning and ranges from brown or red streaked discharge/spotting to full blown heavy, bright red bleeding which again seems to just go on and on for weeks.
When I finally do have a break, Ive noticed a handful of times that i've had (TMI coming up..) lots of watery discharge - like underwear soaking, and the smell is just...indescribable and incredibly strong. I usually have spotting or light pink blood on the tissue after I use the toilet also.
I have a weird heavy ache on my left side - it has been there every day for around 4 months now, and occassionally gets very sharp and painful.
I went to my doctors (finally) 2 days ago. I have never had a smear, and she didn't do one. She took some swabs instead - what are these for?
She also said i would get a letter for a hospital appointment for a smear and ultrasound - is it normal to be sent to the hospital for a smear? I don't understand why she didn't just do one then and there!? I have been feeling sharp pain from my cervix ever since the appointment also.
Anyway, I am waiting for my appointment and a bit concerned and confused, so hoping one of you lovely ladies can advise me.
She did say my cervix looked 'normal'. If that's the case...why the hospital appointment?
Thankyou for taking the time to read. Sending love to you all x
