Hi my name is Kate, I'm 20 years old and I've recently been having a lot of problems. I went in for my annual a couple of weeks ago and told my doctor about the symptoms I've been having so she sent me to get a trans-vaginal ultrasound done to make sure I didn't have any ovarian cysts, that all came back fine. However, about a week later I found out my pap smear came back with irregular cells, this has never happened before. I am now scheduled for a colposcopy in a couple of weeks, but I'm really trying to do some research to help me better understand what I'm going through. My symptoms have been for the past 6-8 months, bleeding after intercourse (about 75% of the time), discharge (sometimes containing blood), and serve pelvic pain, especially during intercourse. I've been with my boyfriend for four years and have been sexually active with him for that long and have only been having these problems for the last several months. Does any of these sound like symptoms of cervical cancer, or any type for that matter. Any feedback would really help me out. Thank you so much.
