Have tummy ache. Had swabs taken due to heavy bleeding and pain. Remedy?

Hello. Have had swabs taken today and have had lower tummy ache since. Reason for having the swabs in the first place is due to changes in my usually regular periods - have become very irregular with period pains 2 weeks prior to coming on and extremely heavy bleeding and pain during and sometimes after sex. Any advise would be appreciated! Many thanks! Rachael

Hello Rachael ... Irregular excessive bleeding pv the cause is age related. Swabs will be helpful to know if it is an infection / are they doing cytology also ? ( called Pap smear )
Some of the common causes of excessive bleeding pv are Fibroid uterus ... a growth, benign, in the uterus, infection of the mouth of the uterus, growth of the uterus mouth ( polyp ) and lastly please rule out malignancy.
All the baove causes may give rise to pain in the lower part of the tummy.
