hi, you could probably help me with this one. After my first doctor advised me to take Tergecef, Doxycline, Fluconazole Im still having gray to yellowish vaginal discharge for the past 2 months and just last week i visited another OB for another check up she noticed I had a bulky and elongated cervix but no lesions and leukorrhea.. she suggested for a gram staining. after a day results came in negative but still she advised me to take Flagyl 3 times a day for 3 days and told me to come back for a pap smear as soon as the dischrges are lessened.. aftr three days of taking it the vaginal dischrges did lessen .. So this afternoon my OB did a pap smear and i wil be goin back to her clinic this friday for the results.. what cervical disorder could i have?? and what other actions could you suggest??
Hi,thanks for query.Pap smear is a screening test for cervical cancer.Any women who is sexually active should go for this once and depending upon the result and age ,further frequency is decided.There is no reason to worry,it is standard practice for gynecologist to advise pap smear in routine for patients visiting them.otherwise patients in a disease free state barely goes for this type of test.bye.

My wife (26 y/o, non-smoking, normal BMI) was on anovulatory for 2 years, suspected PCOS, not responded to Clomifene and was put on Gunal-F for 2 months when we were trying for a baby. One follicle matured after she was given an LH surge, but we did not conceive. This was four months ago. In the past couple of months she s had spotting/bleeding every two weeks or so which she attributed to her body trying to ovulate on its own. After 2 months of having spotting every couple of weeks, she went last week to her consultant who said that was cervical bleeding, and run a pap smear test. Results are only due in a week s time and she s very concerned about cervical cancer. 12 months ago HPV tests were borderline but smear test was negative. 1) what could be causing her cervical bleeding other than cervical cancer? 2) could it be connected to the infertility / rFSH injections? 3) in what % of patients does cervical cancer develop to an invasive stage within a 12-month period? many thanks in advance,a worried husband
I have cervical dystonia. I have had dystonia since 2011. I currently get botox injections every three months; however the wear off after two months. I am a middle school principal and have to talk to many parents every day. Sometimes the pain is so severe that it is difficult if focus on the conversation. I can not take muscle relaxers as I feel I am in a daze when I take them. Any suggestions?
I wonder why my torso and head "bounces" with each heartbeat and you can literally SEE my radial pulse from several feet away. My BP usually runs a range of 117/70 to 159/89 . I am 48 Y/O) female 8 year post- hysterectomy with hx of mvp, grave's disease, cervical cancer, pud, gerd, ibs, chronic tension headaches, migraine, and syncope. I am 5'9' and weigh 140 lbs. I smoke 1 pack or less a day for 30 years. ( I smoke less on workdays because I have no time) I drink almost daily, either 2 beers, 3 glasses of wine, or some liquour if I have it. I am supposed to be taking (Too MUCH) valium, but don't like it. I am unfortunately an aggressive (when stressed) and anxious person. Is this all anxiety? Just a note...the heartbeat "bouncing" and the skipping of beats do not make me anxious, but curious. What IS this?
Hi Dr Oana, I have had a stale blood (reddish brown) discharge for over ten years - both breasts. I am 47 years old, had cervical cancer at 31; current health issues: angina, coronary artery disease, fibromyalgia, high cholesterol not sufficiently controlled with medication (Lipitor for many years and now on Vytorin). I have just noticed the discharge (left breast) has changed to black from one duct, dark green from 3 others. The R breast is still a normal milky discharge. I have saw a specialist 1 year ago who did no tests but said to come back in 2 years. I have never had a biopsy or sample of the discharge examined - should I request my GP organise a needle biopsy (was sent to have one via ultrasound but they decided at the appointment not to do it for some reason. Kind regards, and thank your for assisting, Caroline Todd
