Irregular vaginal bleeding after bowel motion and set

14 Jan 2022 16:21

I have been having fresh vaginal bleeding after having a bowel motion and also fresh blood after intercourse. It is usually just when I wipe, I may have some spotting after this but majority of time is at the time of going to the toilet or straight after sex . Sometimes I could also have thick mucas red/brown discharge I have been also having pain in my lower abdomen. My gp has had to rewrite my referral as a locum consultant put me as routine instead of urgent so because of this delay i have to wait longer! Has anyone else been through this and results have been good? Smear test in Nov was negative but I know it's not 100% .

Hi,

Every case is different but I would suggest you continue to ask your gp for an urgent referral. If the waiting time for NHS is too long, see a doctor in a private hospital if you can. My experience has taught me a good lesson. If I had continued to wait for the gp referral, which never happened, my situation would have even worse. 

Best wishes,
