ive been having problems with bleeding mid month, after intercourse and lost of cramping. I saw my GP who took swabs (negative) and then did an internal. She said she thought it was cervical erosion but my cervix is quite red with white spots so she referred me to the hospital for a colposcopy. As I'm 23 they won't do a smear test.
My letter came and it said colposcopy appointment. I've been today and they refused to do a colposcopy. She just did a normal examination and said it's cervical erosion and it takes up quite a large area so she wants to laser it. I asked if this is causing a stomach cramps etc and she said we'll do the laser treatment and see what happens. I asked if I could just leave it but she said she'd advise treatment for such a large area..
Im now and considering paying for a smear privately. Would this be worthwhile please if anyone has had similar? I can't understand she didn't give me a colposcopy like was arranged. Thank you.
