Hi I don't know if anyone will be able to help but I had a smear test 6 weeks ago and the Doctor rang me yesterday saying that the results showed inflamation and that I was to come back in 6 months time. He didn't seem one bit worried. The thing is, since I had my last period (approx 5 days after my period) I was bleeding (just light spotting sometimes brown in colour with no odour) which lasted 9 days. I have never bled between periods. Also 10 days before my smear I slept my new boyfriend for the first time and used no protection (stupid). I'm worried this could mean I have an STD as i know spotting can be a symptom of some STDs. I have no other symptoms only the spotting. I did fall down the stairs a day before the spotting appeared but surely that wouldn't mean I'd bleed for 9 days? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
