Bleeding from cervix after smear test. Sign of chlamydia?

I have had a smear test today. During the test the nurse said that the swab caused bleeding from my cervix and asked if I wanted to be tested for chlamydia . I agreed to be on the safe side. I am still experiencing bleeding (more than spotting but not heavy). Is bleeding during a smear an automatic sign of chalmydia? (I never bleed following sexual intercourse). I have been with my partner for 7 years and am concerned that either he or I have had it all this time or if I tell him what happened today and what Im being tested for he might think I have cheated (which I have not). I would be grateful for your advice, many thanks

Bleeding from cervix may be due to blunt force trauma during the procedure of smear. Pelvic infection with chlamydia or cervical growth may cause contact trace bleeding.

However, you need to undergo one pelvic examination after consultation with your gynecologist. Do chlamydia test and pap smear test to rule out possible pathology. Tranexamic acid group of drug can arrest bleeding temporarily.

Hope, it helps. Good luck.
