Hi Ladies-

I am very scared -- I had my annual pap yesterday, however, she said my cervix looked very irritated and bled a lot when she touched it with the swab -- she doesn't think the lab will be able to do the pap due to too much blood. She also send me to our gyn specialist for Monday.

Last year I remember she told me my cervix looked somewhat irritated and bled a little, but the pap was done and came back normal.

She said her concern was cervical cancer -- I had dysplasia/HPV in 1993 but have had all normal paps since then (had laser surgery,e tc) and have not ever missed any paps!

I know it's not an STD because I have been married for 10 years, and he and I have not had sex for many months - goign through seperation.

Any thoughts? I am just convincing myself that it probably is CC -- I can't sleep Sad

Thanks for any help -- Cathi

IF you've kept up on your pap smears, it isn't very likely to be cervical cancer. Cervical cancer takes a long time to progress - and the first step is dysplasia - which is sounds like you had once but it either went away on it's own or was removed.

Relax. Wait and see what the pap smear says.

Thank you for your pst! The reason I am so alarmed is she couldn't do a pap because of the bleeding that started from her touching my cervix -- it was so much that she said she couldn't get a sample for the pap Sad
