Hello Ladies,

I'm new here and have been struggling to find some answers for quite a while. Quite frankly, I'm driving myself nuts! I'm hoping you ladies can answer my questions...

Here goes. I am a 28 yr old female who had mild dysplasia 4 years ago which was removed by LEEP. This December, I started bleeding here and there, in between periods. I had also been experiencing pain during sex and bleeding for a couple of days after sex. I didn't really think much of this at the time because it had been happening only once in awhile. Then I started noticing a change in my discharge~there was a lot more of it (still clear) and it was kind of watery. Still didn't go get checked. When my bleeding began to become more frequent and heavier, I thought I had better go. My Dr. told me that my dysplasia was back, however, when I asked him how bad it was he only said that we would treat it with LEEP again. (he's not much for bedside manner). This was in February. Since then, I have had a lot more bleeding, along with being extremely tired (like when you're pregnant and want to crash at 8 at night). This is Thursday and I have been bleeding since Friday. My insides feel very raw and are burning and irritated. Yesterday at work I passed some kind of orange tissue about the size of a quarter.

Here's where I need the help...everywhere I look it says that dysplasia isn't supposed to have any signs. It says that you're not supposed to bleed, etc. I have a friend at work who had the dysplasia which was removed by LEEP and then a few years later she started to bleed non-stop at which time her cervical cancer was found and she had a hysterectomy. I'm really freaking out here because I feel so raw in there and can't seem to stop bleeding. It's not my period. I am absolutely terrified because I am a smoker (I know, it doesn't help things) and I can't seem to find a website that talks about bleeding with dysplasia. I'm scared that it has turned into cancer.

I would really appreciate it if you could tell me:
~anything you know about dysplasia and bleeding
~if anyone with cervical cancer who had dysplasia first had these things going on
~what it feels like physically to have cervical cancer
~how long it took for dysplasia to turn into cancer

I will be getting my LEEP done tomorrow and am so very scared to go in there because things have changed so much since I saw him last. There is a history of this in my family and I've had this once before. I also read that smoking accelerates dysplasia into cancer.

I would really appreciate it if someone could help me out with this. I can't seem to find anything about bleeding with dysplasia. For anyone who replies to this, thank you so very much for taking the time out of your day.

For those who have cervical cancer and are being treated, I wish you all well and much strength. Good luck.
