Cancer: Cervical & Ovarian Message Board

Cancer: Cervical & Ovarian Board Index


Hi there. Let me introduce myself to everyone. I am 34 yr's old with a prior history of moderate dysplasia. Back in early 1994 I had the LEEP done, and things went okay up until around 2000. In early 2000 I started having a lot of pelvic pain, sex became unbearable,I had chronic bladder infections which required me to have a cystoscopy along with a stay in the hospital for silver nitrate treatments.I went to my Gyn. at the time, and he pretty much said nothing was wrong. I should have went in for a 2nd opinion,but I trusted his words.
Here we are in 2007, and my female problems are getting worse. I will break down everything that is going on with me, and I would like some opinions. I do understand that a Dr. is the only definative answer for me, but I would like to talk with women who have had cervical cancer. I know we as women know our bodies better than anyone else, no matter what our Dr's might tell us. I do know something just isn't right with me, and I am researching like crazy online.
1)pain during sex. I have spotted light pink at times right after sex.
2)Heavier periods and I am even passing clots now. I will spot for up to a week before my actual period starts now, which is unusual for me.
3)Past and present issues with recurrent bladder infections.
4)I am tired most of the time. Some days I feel great and clean like crazy, but other days all I want to do is lay on the couch and sleep.
5) I now have sharp stabbing pains in my pelvic area that come and go. They are not constant, but at times they do hurt bad enough to make me double over. I also know when I am ovulating, due to the pain that I experience mid cycle.
I have neglected my yearly needs as a woman. I have not had a pap smear since 2000. I know shame on me for that, especially with my history.
I have an appt. set up for the 29th at the local Health Dept. I do not have med. ins.(due to the cost's of it), so I am going there so that I will be charged according to our income. I hope that they will listen to me when I go in, because I am quite afraid this time. Cancer runs rampant on my Father's side of the family. I've lost numerous family members in the past 10 yr's, due to various cancers.
I became sexually active at the age of 15. I had 2 kids right before my 19th Birthday. My ex gave me HPV. I know he did, because I was with nobody else before him. He did cheat on me, and I am assuming that is how he contracted it. I also think I passed HPV over to my present husband, which makes me feel horrible. I noticed a wart on his penis one night around 2 yr's ago, but I never said anything to him about it. I was too embarrassed, and didn't want to embarrass him either. I know shame on me again.
I basically want to hear from other women as to what their symptoms were, and what stage would be typical for symptoms that I am having to show up?
Sorry that this is so long and personal, but I feel it's best to get it all out there and be completely honest about all of this. I am so happy that I found this board too.
Also if any women read this who will be going through the LEEP soon, I will be more than happy to share my experience with it and with the colposcopies along with biopsies that I had in late 92,93 and then in 94.
Thanks for taking the time to read this.:wave:
