I have Adenomyosis with heavy bleeding w/clots that soak through my clothes.pap smear had endometrial cells.could this be a sign of cancer?

Not cancer

Pap_smear
Endometrial cells on Pap is not a sign of cancer. Adenomyosis can explain heavy bleeding and cramping, but doesn't rule out cancer. Make certain your concerns and communication with your doctor is very good.

what causes bleeding in between periods? its not heavy and pap smear and std tests came out normal.

Intermenstrual bleed

Menses
Bleeding in between periods may be normal in most patients if it if an occasional event. It may be caused by hormonal fluctuations of your body. Polyps and fibroids may also cause spotting. Persistent spotting will need to be checked out.

4 days ago I had a pap smear there is still a small amount of bleeding (like heavy spotting) & mild cramps. Do I need to notify my doctor?

Not at this time

Spotting
Now after a pap smear it is ok to experience light spotting. Also you may also be very close to starting you menstrual cycle, so I would recommend taking some over the counter medications such as tylenol or ibuprofen and if your problems continue for over 1 week then contact your doctor

I have an iud inserted in may, I stopped spotting last month. I got a Pap smear on tues and I haven't stopped heavily bleeding. Is this normal?

No

Spotting
you need to call your ob/gyn quickly - you may have had some movement or irritation to the IUD during the pap. If something was biopsied during the pap, then you may bleed, but biopsies are not a routine part of a pap smear

Had postmenopause bleeding.TVU showed 6mm lining 10mm ovary cyst. Recent D&C clear. Pap smear OK. Now have pelvic pain and weight loss. What is this?

Need further work up

It is hard to say. As women we have many organs in our pelvis. It may be gynecologic or it could be related to your urinary or gastrointestinal tract. Either way keep following up with your doctors

Bleeding after pap smear with back pain.. Cervical cancer?

Pap smear

Back_pain
Pap smear and pelvic examination are indeed the predominant methods of diagnosis for cervical cancer, but bleeding and back pain are not expected following the procedure. It's certainly possible to have some bleeding and discomfort if a biopsy was done, but after routine Pap smear there isn't an expectation of really any problems.

Dr. Brian Enggano answered:

Bleeding after pap smear went to the bathroom to urinate after wiping saw some light bleeding

Not uncommon

Open-uri20130829-29634-1xoi5np
This is fairly common. We as gynecologists try to be extra careful but inevitably there may be some trauma to the vagina during an exam. In addition, a Pap test can actually elicit a small amount of bleeding from the cervix itself. Do not be alarmed if there is some spotting or even light bleeding. It should stop after a few days. If you experience heavy bleeding, see your doctor immediately.
