I have had what looks like blood coming out of me for the past 15 days or so. I'm nowhere near my period yet. so I went to see the gyno, to get my pap among other things, and asked her what it was. she told me my cervix is bleeding -- i noticed when she swabbed me it was very red! I asked her should I be concerned about this and she said no! i do have a yeast infection and i have occasionally been told that could cause some bleeding but it seems like alot for that. on top of this i got a colcoscopy done during the same visit and now it seems that i am bleeding a little more. i have had colcoscopy done before but it was over a year ago. i have never had a baby. can anyone think of what would explain the bleeding, or why my doctor would seem so unconcerned? i haven't had any "rough" activity down there lately either if you know what i'm saying.
thanks, i'm waiting for the pap results. i get tested pretty frequently for cervical cancer (i have HPV) so i think i'm pretty current on that. i'm just curious/worried about what conditions could be causing the blood, what are the implications, etc. all i've ever been told is that it's really bad news to be bleeding between periods.
