Bleeding after smear test?

I went for a routine smear test this morning, on day 12 of my cycle, have just noticed quite a lot of pink blood.

This has never happened before, but is it normal?

When I had my last test (not routine, so was worried to start with )the nurse warned me I was bleeding a bit after she'd done it. She asssured me it was not at all unusual, although of course I was paranoid as it had never happened to me before either. Smear result was normal. So please, don't worry (and well done for keeping up the routine tests!)

Thanks for the replies, it seems to have eased off now, but it was a bit of a shock.

Don't mean to scare anyone who is worrying about having their smear though!
