I have been having irregular bleeding (between periods and after intercourse), painful intercourse, foul watery discharge and cervix bleeds when touched for more than 2 years, haven't had a pap smear in 6 and a half years. Could it be cervical cancer?

Friends and family members should be able to help, if financial or transportation help is needed. ...Read more
During pap smear, if dr touches bristols with her bare hands right before inserting to swab the cervix, can that cause abnormal results? Or infection?
Probably not.: While it's not professional for a doctor to touch the brush with bare hands before doing the test, it won't harm anything. The vagina isn't a sterile place, and the test is looking at cells from your cervix, not for bacteria. Lots of things go into vaginas that aren't sterile. Still, I wouldn't blame you if you wanted to change doctors after that! I hope she had washed her hands first. ...Read more

Had a pap smear 5 days ago and I have been bleeding ever since then today 5th day and chunky already had period early this month. What could it be?
Pap causes bleeding: Just getting a pap smear can stir up some bleeding. The brushes we use are a little rough.
