This is Dr. David
this brown discharge most likely is due to old blood from cervical trauma from sexual activity. or it could be from ovulation mucus.
have you been sexually active recently?
no, you don't have cervical cancer
cervical cancer doesn't cause brown spotting.
cervical cancer is also very very rare
don't be scared.
reading the internet can often worsen your anxiety.
you didn't answer my question.
during ovulation, you can have thicker mucus around your cervix
this thicker mucus can come out as brown discharge.
I bet your sexual activity caused some trauma to the cervix
and that is why you are having a bit of brown discharge now.
yes, if you are sexually active, you should be getting a gyn examination once a year.
when was your last gyn examination?
you need a pap smear and vaginal exam by your gyn doctor
or your GP.
that is good
you don't have cervical cancer.
they would have seen cervical cancer if you had it.
the sexual activity on sunday caused the brown discharge.
cervical cancer is in the cervix, not the colon.
pap smear testing takes cells from the cervix looking for early cervical cancer cells
vaginal finger examinations feels the cervix to feel for abnormalities.
a colonoscopy looks in the colon for colon cancer.
it is normal to have bleeding and brown discharge a few days after sex
this is very common
the penis hits the cervix repeatedly during intercourse.
and this can cause trauma and bleeding later on.
it doesn't happen all the time
it depends on the sex
but when it happens, it is normal
and not from cervical cancer.
does this help?
do you have other questions?
it sounds like you are still anxious.
but don't be worried.
you have had recent vaginal exams recently.
you don't have to be worried about cervical cancer.
you need to stop reading on the internet.
the internet doesn't have a license to practice medicine.
it has never treated a patient or done a gyn examination before.
that is not what I say 2-3 days after intercourse
in a patient who has had recent pap smear exams and recent finger examinations 6 weeks ago.
if you want, go see your doctor again
and get another examination
but I bet everything will be fine.
