  • Can't Take Much More Of The Uncertainty !!!

    I have posted on here before about the symptoms I have but have finally found a lady gyno who LISTENS .

    I have had vaginal discharge for nearly 12 months now, it is red or brown and occasionally almost black. It is EVERY day. Recently I have bright red blood when I have a bowel movement and the blood definately comes from my vagina.
    In summary, I have no infections, my ovaries appear normal although they contain small cysts. Pap smears are normal.
    My first appointment with the new gyno was last week and to my pure delight she looked further than my cervix and found blood from a swap she took from my uterus. May sound strange to some but I cried
    happy tears because the other 2 gyno's I had been to had told me I had a 'beautiful cervix' and brushed me off.

    I have got the results of the uterine and cervical swab she did and both are clear. I said this means I don't have uterine cancer and she said she can't be sure until a Hysteroscopy is done. She has booked me in for a Hysteroscopy. I have been put on a semi-urgent wait list so within 3 months I should have this procedure. Of course she cannot speculate on what she might find but I am interested if anyone else has had similar symptoms. She has also suggested she insert a Mirena as she wants me off the pill. Surely if the problem is hormonal coming off the pill would have fixed the bleeding problem? I took myself off the pill for about 3 months last year but the bleeding continued. I am 40 next month and have 2 year old twins and will not be having anymore children so I may suggest having my tubes tied.

    I am an extremely anxious person and am finding the wait for the Hysteroscopy unbearable. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
