Bleeding Cervix During Pap Smear
Is bleeding during a pap smear and tender cervix normal? Hi, I am 19 years old I have only had two sexual partners I have had lower abdominal pain which the doctors think is from my scar tissue. Today i had a pap smear and my gyno said my cervix was swoll
First : First of all your concern about cervical cancer is valid, given that your grandmother had cervical cancer. But, at 19 yrs old cervical cancer is not something to be concerned. The incidence is almost none to rare. In fact, as per new guidelines by health care leaders, pap smear should be started when woman is 21 yrs old. However there are other reasons why a pap smear was thought necessary before age 21. The most important thing for woman exam (pelvic exam) at your age is std screening and if woman has any menstrual problems or pelvic pain issues. So, with the above information i provided, bleeding during pap smear if it is unusually more and if the cervix is very tender, i would recommend that you should get std screening. Infections with chlamydia and trichomonas can cause tender cervix, pain with intercourse and also can make it bleed easily. Sometimes, woman might not have typical symptoms of burning and vaginal discharge with chlamydia infection. Just that infection with chlamydia has long term implications on fertility and other complications, it is worth getting checked. My sincere advise is to use protection without failure any time to prevent stds. I do want to provide you with some more information about cervical cancer and how to modify any risk factors to decrease your risk of cervical cancer in the future. One of the risk factors that causes cervical cancer is hpv infection. But more than half of women of your age fight it off and get rid of it. Human papilloma virus is a infection that is transmitted sexually. This puts women at high risk for cervical cancer. There is a vaccine available to prevent the risk of getting high risk hpv from partners. At your age that is very well worth the cost to get the vaccine. It is a series of 3 injections over a period of 6 months. Please talk to your doctor for more information about risk factors for cervical cancer. I hope this is helpful information to you. ...Read moreGet help now ›

Did pap smear yesterday,inflamed & bleeding cervix. Will go back after a week. Is there any medication i can take to stop my cervix from bleeding??
Treat locally: Once a lesion of the cervix starts bleeding the chance is that it will not stop spontaneously. One could apply laser treatment to stop it or else some form of cauterization. The easiest way however is to have your physician place a clotting substance such as surgicell against the cervix which should cause enough clotting to stop any further bleeding. ...Read moreGet help now ›
