I received a letter from my local hospital yesterday saying they have made me a colposcopy appointment. This is news to me as I certainly didn't request one and don't really know what this is about and I'm freaking out!
I visited my gp a month ago about bleeding after sex probably caused by the HSG test a few days before - he looked at my cervix, said it looked fine and that it almost certainly was caused by the hsg and would stop in a few days, told me to contact him again if it continued. It did stop and hasn't happened again but now I'm worrying he did see something suspicious or asked for a second opinion and referred me for a colposcopy.
Neither my GP or anyone else wrote to me about this or copied me into a referral letter so I don't know what's going on!
My husband thinks it's just a mistake, an administrative error. Either way I'm fuming that a lack of communication somewhere has made me so anxious - if the gp had explained he was going to do this just to be on the safe side I wouldn't be as worried.
I will of course phone the hospital and surgery when they open but after a night of tossing and turning over this I wanted to ask if anyone has any thoughts about this or can share their experience of a colposcopy if I do need to go.
Appointment is a months time so at least I'm telling myself that it's nothing serious or I'd be seen sooner, though I'm surprised they do a colposcopy after easily explained bleeding - Google suggests it's usually prolonged /unexplained bleeding or three abnormal smears - mine was 18 months ago and all clear.
Any suggestions gratefully received!
