Vaginal Spotting

I had a partial hysterectomy 15 years ago, everthing was removed except cervix. On March 9th of this year I started spotting for the first time. A pap test, biopsy and scraping was done, all negative but every six weeks I continue to spot...I don't know what to do. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Julia, If you haven't done so, I would recommend another follow up appointment. My cervical cancer was diagnosed after I had been spotting almost continuously for about 7 weeks and I had already been through menopause for over 7 years. It could be absolutely nothing, but would be best to be vigilant in your testing until it is resolved or a good explanation is given as to why your are spotting. I am blessed to have just reached 1 yr survival since my diagnosis but I still worry every day. Try to have good thoughts but keep persistent when it comes to your health. Good luck and keep posting, this a great support site. Kty
