Hi Shannon,

Thank you for getting in touch with Ask Eve. The reason your doctor says no to the smear test is because up to the age of 25, we often get results that are not helpful, so after lots of research into this the NHS advisers suggest not to have a smear before 25, unless symptomatic.

It’s good that your doctor checked you with a speculum (the plastic brush), and it’s good that it looked healthy.

Are you due to come on your period? Then this would be normal. However, do you bleed in between your periods or after sex? If you are not expecting the bleeding and you are worried, you can speak with our specialist Nurse, Tracie, in confidence in a bit more detail. Please email us on nurse@eveappeal.org.uk or phone 0808 802 0019.

Best Wishes,

Team Eve.
