Do I bother to go to the doctor with this? i'm up to date with my smear and it isn't likely to be an std. i tend to get very anxious over my health, and i think he would think i was wasting his time. if it continued, how long do you think i should leave it?
Thank you egg. i think that the act of making the gp appointment will heighten my anxiety, and i can't bear that sicky, anxious feeling. if i ignore it, i won't have to worry, iyswim . but i will ring on Monday.
It's probably nothing, but it's not a symptom to ignore. Once you've seen the GP you'll feel less anxious, but I think if you delay you'll just become more scared to deal with it because you didn't go at the beginning. Good luck.
thanks for your advice, everyone. my period came 24 hours later (i have an IUD, so i am very irratic), so i guess it may have been linked to that (although this was fresh blood, and menstrual isn't - tmi???) Adverse, biscuits and DVDs??? fabulous!
Yes you need to go to GP for referral to gynaecologist. Sounds like cervical Erosion which looks like = reddened broken skin on cervix. Needs Cryo surgery (Dan of freezing) to heal. Not painful if you relax. No different than having a smear but takes 2 minutes contact (with Nitrous Oxide)
