Re: Very worried
That sounds nothing like cervical cancer. Are you getting PAPs regularly?
With very few exceptions, cervical cancer takes years- usually at least ten years- to develop. First you'll have varying degrees of CIN, which is a precancerous condition.
It is extremely rare for full-blown cervical cancer to just develop suddenly with no warning. Usually there's years and years of advance warning.
The symptoms you describe sound like a bladder infection or UTI.
If your "cervix" feels weird/heavy/whatever (not sure how you can tell it's your cervix; I can't feel mine, except when it gets bumped during rough sex), it could be a condition called cervical ectropion, also known as cervical erosion. This is a common, harmless condition caused by taking birth control pills, where your cervix becomes oversensitive/mildly irritated/inflamed, and sometimes bleeds easily, causing spotting (esp after intercourse). The condition is caused by the high levels of hormones in the bc pills. It requires no treatment, and typically resolves itself a few months after you discontinue the pills.
I'm not sure why you haven't had a period in so long. Are you pregnant? Have you tested? Is it normal for you to have such long cycles? Do you have PCOS? If I were you, I'd forget about your cervix, and go to the doctor to find out why you aren't having a period.
I have heard that it sometimes takes a while for your period to become normal again after stopping the pill, although this has not been my personal experience.
