Dear all, this is my first post in this community and I hope that the kind and wonderful people here can help me to find a better way to solve my health problems.
I am a young single girl (aged below 30) who have suffered 5 years of intermenstrual bleeding (bleeding between periods), I had gone through some thorough investigations with NHS in the beginning of 2010 and and found that I have mild cervical erosion which was cured as well as a small endometrial polyp - which was removed in colposcopy in June 2010; I had smear tests along the way as well and they all appeared negative apart from one which was later clarified as wrong. In 2011, I did some further smear tests and the results were negative. The symptoms were less severe for the most part of 2012 and 2013. However, late 2013, they returned and this time I chose to see private gynaecologist as the the duration of abnormal bleeding was quite long. She checked quite a lot of things - hormone levels, smear tests, ultra-sound scan etc, and in the end she suggested to do a colposcopy as there were no obvious causes. During the procedure she found 2.5 endometrial polyps and removed them in Dec 2013. I thought that this should bring the end to the story, however, in April, the intermenstrual bleeding came back again for 10 days again last month which lasted for more than 20 days. I am seeing the doctor for a follow-up consultation on Thursday but I am quite depressed as this has been going on for a long time, does anyone who has similar symptoms can offer any advices on top of seeing a gynaecologist? I think I really need to find out a second approach to this problem.
A million thanks!!
