what baby was that for you?
how did you deliver?
vaginally, at 36 weeks, 5 days
i stopped at 7 months
any problems with loosing the baby weight
i resumed normal periods at six weeks
no, my daughter has food intolerances so i was not eating dairy or soy and lost the weight as a result
any pain with intercourse?
how about bleeding afterwords
how long has that been going on
not much different than the normal pink discharge i've been having, but yes, there is some blood
i've had heavier, watery discharge for about two months
and noticed that it is consistently very lightly tinged with pink blood for about a month
have you ever had an abnormal pap test?
but my last pap smear was almost a year before my pregnancy
if memory serves
we usually do them at the first visit
you sure you didn't have one then?
i switched doctors after my first visit after pregnancy, so I am not sure, but they may have done one. I guess they would have
but to your knowledge...no abnormals for you
if they did, it was obviously normal at the time
and no STDs or anything else abnormal
any pain or burning with urination
how about constipation
as of the last two days
but not before that
any odor to this discharge...or irritation, burning, etc
there is not noticeable odor, no irritation or burning or anything else, just that it is very moist and lately has been pinkish
so based upon everything you have told me...it's extremely unlikely to be cervical cancer
even though I am using protection, i was convinced i was pregnant last month b/c of the combination of cramping / back pain and the pink discharge. but i am not pregnant
I understand that's what you will see when you read on the internet...
cervical cancer typically takes about 10 years to develop
typically there is a history of abnormal pap tests...
not a one time thing then cancer..
so extremely unlikely
that is very good news
more likely a polyp or fibroid in the uterus or cervix.
could possibly be abnormal cells on the cervix
less likely an infection
i did have an ovarian cyst that ruptured about two years ago, but there was no bleeding at the time
you can see some bleeding with a ruptured cyst, but it typically only lasts a couple of days or so...
not 2 months
so...I think you can rest a bit easier over the weekend and give your doctor a call on Monday...
so is there anything I should ask or expect my doctor to do re these symptoms?
you should have a pap test, pelvic exam and ultrasound just to confirm..
I understand he will do a pap smear
great, thank you so much
have a nice weekend
