I have had a range of symptoms recently and I do not trust

Hi,I have had a range of symptoms recently and I do not trust the opinion of my regular doctor.In January, February, and April I took Clomid. Starting in January, for the first time in my life, and continuing until now I have had constipation. While on Clomis in January and February I had quite a lot of discomfort during sex and cramping which the nurses shrugged off as normal. When I took Clomid in April, cutting my dose in half hoping to lessen the side effects it was terrible. I was so sore it hurt to walk, needles to say we did not even try that month.Since I had taken the Clomid I have felt something is not right. This last cycle I got my period on time, day 28, as usual but it lasted 8 days, twice as long as usual. I didn't think much of it until I starting spotting only 5 days after it had finished. I spotted brownish blood for 4 days and then really started to bleed for 4 days and then spotted again for another 2. I was also very continuous cramp in my abdomen throughout the 2nd period. As a caution I received an ultrasound which came back as saying I had multiple Nabothian cysts. I have also lost 8lbs in the last 7 days without any change to my diet or otherwise.My doctor said that Nabothian cysts could cause the bleeding and discomfort but I have read otherwise and I feel like my weight loss in addition to everything else should print further investigation. He wants me to wait three months to see how the cysts go prior to seeing a gynocologist.In addition to this, and I am unsure if it is related, I have a lot of back pain when I sit. It doesn't hurt when I sit but is very painfully stiff when I get up and move around for the first few minutes. I am 34, normally 121lbs, now 113lbs, and all my blood results on my cheek and CBC are optimal.Should I be concerned?

I had irregular bleeding between my period, after having

Hello, I had irregular bleeding between my period, after having sex. I went to a practitioner that did a coposocopy (sp) and the results were a CIN 1 sighting in the endocervical canal but nothing on the cervix. The practitioner didn't do a PAP since last years PAP was negative. All my testing for venerial disease was also negative from last year and I have been in a monogomous relationship for over a year and a half. I was on the pill last year and only for one year and now have switched to diaphragm. I have never come up positive for HPV virus. I'm 45 years old. What would you stay my next step would be in seeking treatment. (please excuse all typos, I am a horrible speller)

I've tested positive risk hpv several times. The

I've tested positive for high risk hpv several times. The first was about 11 years ago. I've had two cryo therapies (the last one baking about 2 years ago). After that cryo, I had two consecutive papa come back normal and negative for hpv. Now I am pregnant and tested positive again with hpv although my pap was normal. Do you always have this virus once you get it? I know the body typically "clears" the virus but what would explain mine going away and then coming back?

I just got over my period started april 17th and ended april

I just got over my period started april 17th and ended april 22/23. I had intercourse last night and had light bleed about 3 hours after. Now I have been crazy about checking my cervix and bleeding and when I check my cervix There is light almost rust color blood coming from the opening. My periods are usually 6-7 days but I have never had bleeding/spotting like this. I also had a miscarriage last month and my period was about 2-4 days early. I stopped taking the pill in February and haven't really had normal period yet so my cycle is a little off.JA: OK. The Gynecologist will need to help you with this. Is there anything else the Gynecologist should be aware of?Customer: I also had dull pain in my pelvic area. Almost like period cramps.JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now.

Just wanted to give you an update that I had an ultrasound

Just wanted to give you an update that I had an ultrasound today and all was still good with the baby!One thing though is that my pap came back normal but with high risk hpv. 6 months ago I had a pap that was ascus but negative for hpv. I'm not new to this as I've had one case of CIN 2 9 years ago (treated with cryo) and then another case of CIN 1 treated with cryo a little more than a year and a half ago.My question is this- what is recommended with these results?

I can feel a small growth on my cervix, just to the right

Hi,I can feel a small growth on my cervix, just to the right side of the opening to the womb. It feels like a scratch or small scar - a "grainy" feeling. I thought I could feel something a couple of weeks ago, but didn't give it another thought, but today it is definitely there and when I push on it it sends a nasty, deep seated, achey pain right up through my cervix and into the right side of my low abdomen ( a bit like an early labor pain). The pain is still there a little bit even now - just a dull ache.I'm 41, gave birth to my 4th child 5 months ago by c-section (still breastfeeding - so no periods at the moment, but I did have some light spotting about a month ago that came to nothing), I've always had regular smears (last one 3 years ago and was normal).Clearly I've go myself worked up and convinced I'm about to die of cancer of the cervix! Any chance that this is just likely to be a wart (although I've never knowingly had these, nor has my husband to my knowledge)? Do warts present like this? Can they be painful to touch?Thanks for your time and help.

From 2006 to 2008 (I was 26-28 years old during this time

From 2006 to 2008 (I was 26-28 years old during this time frame), I had abnormal paps, tested positive for HPV, and had colposcopies/biopsies (twice) that showed low-grade dypslasia. The last abnormal pap was in April of 2007 and showed ASC-US I believe (I recall the gyno saying it was "less abnormal" than the previous ones had been). I then didn't have another pap until after having a baby in 2009 (with a new partner), at which point I had a normal pap and no HPV test was done (new doctor and I wasn't paying close attention). I had another negative pap 4 years ago (April 2012), again with no HPV test done. For a variety of reasons have not been back to the gyno since then. I realized this today and made an appointment, but it's not for over a month and I'm now really freaked out that I could have cervical cancer from my history and failure to have followed up appropriately! Thanks for any insights you have.
