Cervical Smear...HELP!

Hi All,

I had my first cervical smear test yesterday (very scary stuff I must add!) and once finished, I asked the nurse if everything looked ok? She replied that I have a lot of white mucus? Can anybody give me anymore information as to whether this is something that I need to be concerned about? I have been sexually active since I was 17 (now 25) and have only had 2 partners.

Many thanks, Gemma x

Re: Cervical Smear...HELP!

Vaginal white mucus is the body's way of cleaning out the vagina. If you have an excessive amount, it may indicate a yeast infection (very common and simple to cure if you have it).

When you get the results of your smear, see if they checked for STD's. If you have a negative smear, chances are you do not have any but if it is positive, it may be an STD or even a yeast infection that is causing the result.

Re: Cervical Smear...HELP!

Thanks for your reply. My mum actually said the same thing! I was with my 1st partner for 8 years, and my current one (due to marry soon) for 3. I had a termination back in November 05 and they checked for STDs then and all come back clear so I dont think it could be that. I have had thrush before, once through antibiotics and I had a lot of itching and inflammation and havent noticed any symptoms of that either.
The nurse did say it is quite common for women of my age especially as I am on the pill. I must say I dont notice an excessive amount (certainly not enough to wear a panty liner etc) but it does increase about a week before period is due. This is strange I guess as I know I dont ovulate whilst taking the pill!
I think I am panicking over nothing but the thought of anything being wrong worries me!
Thanks once again, Gemma
