Hmm? GP is reluctant to refer me to a gyno, but I would like to know waht it is. AIBU? Should I just live with it and not worry, is it normal? It's not as a result of sex, I don't have any. So what could it be, anyone know?
HB I used to have this. It used to occur only around the time of ovulation. If this is what happens to you then that's prob why doctor doesn't want to refer you. Should have explained it to you though. I only had a bit of spotting but it was always linked to ovulation. If yours occurs at other times of the month, then you should get it checked out.
I had a coil fitted and haven't had any more problems with it.
Hi last year I started bleeding in between my periods (generally 4-7 days before proper AF, which varied between light red to brown). After lots of tests mine turned out to be due to thyroid problems. I would definately push to get it resolved. xx
Thanks for the responses, it kind of backs up what I've been thinking.
My GP suggested tht it might be because of menopause (I'm 43) but I would really like to get it checked out to rule out anything more sinister. TBH I just thought he would automatically refer me just to be sure it's nothing serious.
Luvaduck - am definitely not pregnant, haven't had sex for years. Am about to go for a smear in about a week so might try and get referred then, but I have a feeling the practice nurse doesn't have the power to refer, am not sure on this one though.
