Question UTERINE CANCER or Something Minor? Anxious wait for tests!!

Hi All,

I have posted on here before about the symptoms I have but have finally found a lady gyno who LISTENS
I have had vaginal discharge for nearly 12 months now, it is red or brown and occasionally almost black. Recently I have bright red blood when I have a bowel movement and the blood definately comes from my vagina.
In summary, I have no infections, my ovaries appear normal although they contain small cysts. Pap smears are normal.
My first appointment with the new gyno was last week and to my pure delight she looked further than my cervix and found blood from a swap she took of my uterus. May sound strange to some but I cried happy tears because the other 2 gyno's I had been to had told me I had a 'beautiful cervix' and brushed me off.

So now I wait for the results of the uterine swab. She has booked me in for a Hysteroscopy. I have been put on a semi-urgent wait list so within 3 months I should have this procedure. Of course she cannot speculate on what she might find but I am interested if anyone else has had similar symptoms. She has also suggested she insert a Mirena as she wants me off the pill. I am 40 next month and have 2 year old twins and will not be having anymore children so I may suggest having my tubes tied.

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
