What's going on inside me?

For the past 2 months I've been experiencing some strange symptoms. It started off with a sore tummy (which has never really stopped) and I had 6 perieods in 5 weeks. I have tried to get a doctors appointment, but am unable to get one as by the time I get through to them in the morning, they have filled them all which is very frustrating. I did think for a while I could be pregnant, but with so much bleeding, I have deemed this an imposibility now. I'm 31 years old and have always had very regular smear tests, every 6 months for a few years and now once a year. I have had laser surgery to remove cancerous cells from my cervix in the past, but I'm now worried that I could have develloped some again. I'm not sure if this is just all in my head, and I'm getting paranoid by over thinking things, or could I actually be pregnant and just having weird symptoms? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for reading!

Hello Roisin,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thank you for reaching out to us for advice.

You need to be examined by a gynecologist. It is apparent that you are not pregnant if you have been having what sounds like prolonged vaginal bleeding (" 6 periods in 5 weeks").

Where do you live? Can't you make an appointment to be seen? Are you calling a doctor's office or clinic? Do they schedule on a first come first serve basis and only do this one day at a time?

Anonymous, prolonged bleeding will lead to significant blood loss and iron deficiency anemia. This persistent stomach pain must be evaluated.

If necessary, can you go to a walk-in urgent care center or the local hospital which may have a clinic?
