Could it be Cervical Cancer?
punkyfaith posted:
During a regular check up while I was pregnant my doctor found abnormal cells and diagnosed it as HPV. She wanted to do a biopsy, but not while I was pregnant. My baby is now 9 months old and still nothing has been done. I am on my 4th period in a 2 month time frame, I've had some abnormal discharge and it hurts during intercourse. I've also noticed lower back pain alot lately. I went back to the doctor a couple of days ago and told her what was happening. She dismissed it as an infection, gave me some medicine and sent me on my way saying " Come back in 3 weeks". She didn't even give me anything to stop the periods, which needless to say have started to interfer with my day to day life. I can't take this and I need help. My mom had the same symptoms when she was diagnosed with Cervical Cancer. Could that be whats happeng to me? Please help.
