Hi there.Ive recently been having irregular bleeding.Missed periods in Dec last year then had next on 17th Jan which lasted 10 days till 27jan then stopped for few days with spotting in between the periods.Then had proper periods again on 8th Feb which lasted 7days.I went for a scan & found 3.5 cm cyst on left ovary.Have been having a lot of abdominal pain sometimes sudden needle type pain.All blood tests came normal even menopause ones.As I was having some perimenopause symptoms too.Sorry I forgot to tell I am 42 years old.I have been experiencing some virginal dryness too.Smear test came normal too.My doc wanted to do a cervix examination.She said cervix looks a bit cracked.She did some swab tests too & it was bleeding.I am still bleeding a bit after the examination.Just worried that can it be cervical cancer symptom?As my result of smear test came back last week & it was normal.

Hello, Vaginal dryness is usually a symptom of infections like yeast or bacterial vaginosis. Dryness can also be due to a low estrogen level. It is not a symptom of cervical cancer. With a normal smear , there are no chances of a cervical cancer.Assuming that infections have been ruled out out, you need to get a test for the FSH and estrogen level. Another cause for irregular bleeding with bleeding from the cervix is cervical erosion. This is a simple benign easily treatable condition.

I've been through a lot of stress recently can stress cause dry & cracked cervix?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Is it normal to have blood on swabs in a swab test?I had it done yesterday & I still feel sore inside.
Stress can affect the estrogen level and lead to dryness. And yes, there can be blood on the swab after a swab test - this can be normal . Infections and cervical erosions can cause the cervix the bleed slightly during a swab test.I hope this helps. Please click on a positive rating to leave feedback.
