I'm 26 years old..first had cervical cancer at 18. Was cancer free till the summer of 2015. I had leep done for the second time. I am also not able to have children cause of other medical reasons. I'm just worried it could be cancer again so I thought I'd ask for some opinions before I let it get to me too much.
I have never experienced this before and it caught me off guard. I am on the pill but have been on it for almost a year.
Any ideas or thoughts for you guys will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you so much..

Hello and welcome to EmpowHer,
I'm so sorry that you went through cervical cancer at such as young age.
Irregular bleeding, especially heavy bleeding between periods can be a sign of cervical cancer. Since your bleeding is so unusual and you have had cervical cancer in the past, I highly suggest that you see a gynecologist as soon as possible.
Below I have pasted a link to a HER article explaining more symptoms that may point to cervical cancer:
