I'm currently frightened to death, my doctors decided on Friday to try and do a Smear test, she said I had a short cervix, then made me bleed, even though I said I was bleeding on and off. Now today I've started my period properly. I did also say that I'm on and off my period but get a full period at the same time every month. I also get the severe pain when I'm on my period and I'm very heavy. Trouble is any sign of stress for me I have always started bleeding. She has frightened me because she wants me referred to a gyno within 2 weeks. She said it could be cysts, fibroids or polyps, but obviously want to rule out anything more sinister.
