Hi there,

Thank you very much for your message. We are very sorry to hear that you are feeling worried about this.

Everybody is different, so some ladies have more discharge or a bit of blood in their discharge after having a smear test or examination in your vagina.

If the letter after a smear test tells the lady she has abnormal cells, then she is always sent for a colposcopy, and the normal waiting time for this is about 2 weeks, which is all completely normal practice, so please don't think that your doctor is rushing you in or it is an emergency.

A colposcopy is a fairly quick process, which allows the doctor to see inside of you a bit more clearly, with something like a magnifying glass.

If you would like to talk more about this, or have a colposcopy explained to you over the phone, please call us on 0808 802 0019 and we can talk you through it.

Wishing you well,

The Ask Eve team.
