Smear at 51(2 Posts)
I had a smear test a week ago - very overdue unfortunately - and I have been bleeding ever since. It is mainly dark brown with lots of bits (clots?) and occasionally it is bright red. I have had some cramping too.
I am 51 so I know my hormones are probably all over the place. I am still having periods but they are quite sporadic so I can't track them properly. When I do have them they are very heavy and (sorry TMI( I flood a lot and the last one was before Christmas.
I have seen a gynae once before who said that I have fibroids but was quite dismissive.
I am very concerned, and would really appreciate some input from anyone who has an experience or can help at all please?
silly question ( from me) but if your periods are irregular- is this not a period?
Smears shouldn't cause this- just a coincidence?
