Hello, my name is***** and I shall be assisting you today. I'm reviewing your query & will get back to you shortly. Thank you for your patience.

Expert:  Dr Uzair replied 5 months ago.

It is not possible to get pregnant while on your period, specially if your periods continued after the intercourse for a couple of days. That leaves no chance of leaving any sperm in the cervix to later cause conception either.

If you had a PAP smear in January, this is definitely not cervical cancer.

Ovulation does not cause bleeding.

This might be either blood coming out due to trauma during a recent sexual intercourse or blood from the previous period.

You can also perform a urinary pregnancy test at this point in time to further rule out pregnancy.

Hope this helps.

Have you experienced a drastic weight loss?

Irregular periods?

Pain in the lower abdomen?

Decrease or loss of appetite?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Last week when it started I did have mild cramping and was bloated but I was fine over the weekend and had intercourse on Saturday and was fine no pain or bleeding .
Getting anxious now .
Expert:  Dr Uzair replied 5 months ago.

Well, then you do not have cervical cancer. Rest assured.

This is not how cervical cancers present. Why don't you think about other causes of spotting and not jump straight to cancer.

More likely possibilities are infections, hormonal imbalances, endometriosis, ovulation failure, cervical polyps, uterine fibroids, excesive exercise etc.

Hope this helps.

And unusual :(
Expert:  Dr Uzair replied 5 months ago.

You need to stop thinking about Cancer.

Don't let the anxiety get the best of you.

And to rule out pregnancy, do a home pregnancy test.

Relax!

I spoke with my Nurse and she said to get a clomodia test but that would Mean I got it from my husband which would mean he's slept about ? Plus she said to do a test to see if preg and another smear .... now I'm worried she thinks ther is something wrong
Expert:  Dr Uzair replied 5 months ago.

You're just being too anxious here. Why overthink and jump to conclusions before you've actually done any tests.

Its a nurse's and a doctor's job to worry and recommend tests. And also necessary for your peace of mind that you get the tests done.

What do you think it's is ?
Expert:  Dr Uzair replied 5 months ago.

Could be anything from the list of causes that I mentioned in my earlier post and only a detailed examination and investigations will confirm, however, I think this is hormonal imbalance or ovulation failure.

I am spotting like you so before or after a period it's only when I wipe hard you can just notice it and no more and not all the time
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
When will it go away ?
Expert:  Dr Uzair replied 5 months ago.

Give it another 2 days and get the tests done advised by your nurse.

I am going on holiday in 5 weeks and I do t want to be waiting for tests while away as inwill be so anxious :(Also when I say I'm spotting it's only when I wipe or insert the toilet roll , could that be old blood ?
Expert:  Dr Uzair replied 5 months ago.

Can very well be old blood. You can wait like I mentioned earlier. It depends on how you feel about it.

Try and relax. Keep yourself busy in other things and not think about this.

Did I just accept the offer. ?
Expert:  Dr Uzair replied 5 months ago.

Thank you for accepting the additional services.

Periods can delayed for up to 10 days and that is something normal, stress and anxiety can delay periods. Since, you also had a discharge a few days back, the delay is the period is not something that raises a concern at this point in time.

Let me know if you need more information.

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
what is going on ?
Expert:  Dr Uzair replied 5 months ago.

Nothing is going on. This is something that can happen and it is perfectly normal to have a delay in the period after going through so much stress and anxiety.

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Could I have a hormonal imbalance
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Because my mind feels as thought it's going mad
Expert:  Dr Uzair replied 5 months ago.

Unlikely to draw any conclusions at this point in time and without lab tests.

You have only had a delay in one period. You have anxiety, for sure and you need to get that addressed because that is what is causing all your problems.

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
I am going to see my gp for additional therapy for my anxiety and I'm starting a private session untill then tomorrow as I can't go on like this ..... my mind is going mad :(
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
What do I do in the mean time
Expert:  Dr Uzair replied 5 months ago.

You should keep yourself occupied and do deep breathing exercises. If you have your spouse with you then ask him to stay with you and keep you distracted.

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Yup I am on it already . Will my period come ?
Expert:  Dr Uzair replied 5 months ago.

Yes, it will come.
