    Scared I have cervical cancer

    Hello, I have been having bleeding after sex off & on for the past 4 years (ever since I became sexually active at the age of 21). I then saw a OB/GYN for the first time and was diagnosed with moderate dysplasia. I had a LEEP done and had clear margins and my pap smears have all been normal since but I still have bleeding after intercourse. Two years ago I had a colposcopy done and it was normal and I have another one scheduled for 3 weeks from now. I have been tested for every infection and STD and other than cervical cancer, I can't find any other problems that could be causing this bleeding! My question is, has anyone had this symptom of bleeding after sex? If so, did it turn out to be cervical cancer? Could I have had cervical cancer for the past 4 years and it just has gone undetected because, perhaps, it is up in the endocervical canal and was unseen by a colposcopy?
    I am just trying to make sense of this so I am more at ease until my colposcopy in 3 weeks! Thanks for your help!

    Re: Scared I have cervical cancer

    I have been spotting after sex for the past year now, but I always attributed it to where I'm at in my cycle. I sometimes have pain also, so if it's not my cycle, I'm thinking it must be a fibroid or something. Now, after having normal periods since day 1, I got my period two weeks after my last one, and it lasted for two weeks. I haven't been in for a physical in 10 years, but I have one scheduled for next week cuz I have been having some other health issues and my doctor is having a fit about a physical. I am due anyway since I found a lump in my breast also. Getting old bites:-)

    At any rate, I will let you know what I find out about the bleeding/sex.

    Re: Scared I have cervical cancer

    I had the same problem for awhile. My fiance and I haven't had sex for almost 2 years because of it!!! After going to 2 doctors, the second one told me that my bc pills were putting out too much estrogen which caused the lining of my cervix to "bud" out, which was causing the bleeding. I needed to have a LEEP anyway, so when I had that, I just had the doctor cut away that piece of "skin". Now, I have no idea if it worked because we haven't been able to have sex just yet.

    Bleeding after sex was one of the symptoms that led me to being daignosed
    with mild cervical dysplasia . I have to have a pap every 4 months to check and make sure that it does not become cancer . I also had extremely heavy cycles and was put on the pill to healp regulate my them .

    Yes, I had bleeding after sex, and yes it turned out to be cervical -- but it was VERY advanced, I had not been to a doctor for 8 years.....

    if your pap is normal, then you don't have cervical. If you want to get a 2nd opinion from a specialist to make you feel better.....maybe you should. I don't know what else to say to you.

    I had leep. And somtimes I had slight bleeding before I found out, and now that I am fine once and a while I bleed. I wonder how much you are bleeding. For me it was MILD.

    I myself have suffered with bleeding after intercourse but i had three children by then.I had abnormal cells found after one of my routine smears and had treatment which was successfull.The hospital performed a colposcopy for me,which found nothing unusual.I am not getting any bleeding now but i do have other medical problems(down there).Always ask for a second opinion if you are still suffering.No woman should have to live with the'UNEXPLAINED'.I hope everything sorts itself out in time.
