I've been bleeding every single day since January of this year. Recently, I've also been getting occasional pelvic pain with it and the blood has tended to be dark brown and watery. I've also been having really bad night sweats.
At first, I assumed it was because of the Depo contraceptive injection, but the last one I had was about 2 years ago and I didn't have any periods or bleeding at all -that is until January 2007!
My pap smear came back abnormal at the start of 2006 showing "mild abornormalities", so went for another last summer, which again showed mil abnormalities again". I went for a colposcopy in October 2006 - again with "mild abnormalities!"
I went to my doctor about the bleeding about a month ago who did an internal examination but found nothing, although said there was some cervical erosion. He told me to ask the colposcopy doctor for cauterization on my next visit. In hindsight, I wonder why he didn't do a preganancy and thyroid test??
Finally, I went to have another colposcopy last month and they found a largish abnormal patch which they took a biopsy from. The gyn refused to do any cautery until he knew why the paps were abnormal and why I was bleeding. He also decided to refer me for a scan, and I assume he was referring to an ultrasound.
I now to wait 6 weeks for the biopsy results and there's no news on when I will be able to have the scan. It's so infuriating!
Has anyone had anything similar or can shed any light on the matter? I have no idea whether I have HPV or not, although I have had HSV Type 2 for about 8 years.
Are you spotting or you're having an excessive bleeding? Seven months continuous bleeding need serious medical attention. The abnormal area on your cervix can be lesion (pre-malignant or malignant) that causes the bleeding. On the other side, the pelvic pain and the bleeding can refer to a endometriosis(condition that affects the inner lining of uterus).
There are other reasons for continuous bleeding, too.
In young women the most of the bleedings are explained with different benign condition.
