Hi XXXXXXX
Thanks for posting your query.
Follicular retention cysts are common in women (especially premenopausal) and the cyst usually takes care of itself by either absorbing back into the system or bursting.
Cervicitis is an inflammation of tissue in women's cervix due to recurrent infection. Post coital bleeding is also a matter of concern.
So consult your gynaecologist for local examination & treatment of cervicitis with antibiotics. We would also need a pap smear to be done to rule out major disease like cervical carcinoma.
Hope that helps. I will be available for your followup queries.

Regards,
Dr.Monika

Hi XXXXXXX
Welcome back.
Cervicitis can be cause of post coital bleeding. But,the most serious cause of post coital bleeding is cervical cancer. About 11 percent of women with cervical cancer present with post coital bleeding.
First you get pap smear done to rule out cervical carcinoma & to detect cause of cervicitis, if there occurs any abnormality in test; you would have to undergo cervical biopsy.
I hope you will follow my advise.

Dr.Monika

I had gone for pap smear test but the test could not be done as stains of blood discharge came onthe swab. My last menstrual was on 14 August so she suggested that i visit after my periods are over. today is 19 september but my periodsi have not yet started. SO IS THERE anything wrong and within how many days after she could see the blood inside that the period should have started. How long should i wait or i visit the doctor again urgently. Iwent on 13 SEPTEMBER FOR PAP SMEAR

Hi XXXXXXX
welcome back.
Actually you are having irregular periods, so it would be very difficult to tell that when you will get your periods.
Pap smear is a screening test & if it is showing some abnormality, you would have to go for cervical biopsy.
So you can do one thing-if you are unable to get pap smear you can go for cervical biopsy to rule out cervical carcinoma & endometrial biopsy to detect cause of irregular periods. Both procedures can be done simultaneously under sedation.
I think you should not delay in this matter.
I will be available for your further queries.
Regards

Hi,
Welcome back.
If still your period is awaited, avoid intercourse for 2-3 days & then get you pap smear done.
In between if period starts, wait for 2-3 days after completion of menses & then you can go for procedure.
If pap smear is normal then there is no need to go for biopsy.

Take care.
