Staining in between since pap smear exam

marie26February 11, 2005

I am almost 54. Four years ago, I had staining between periods and the doctor tested me and found large fibroids. I was given pills for a short while and my periods became regular until now.

I went for a pap smear a month ago which was normal but the fibroids are still large (according to the doctor during the exam). Anyways, since the exam I have been staining continuously. Is this just coincidence? Must I go back to the doctor? Or how long should I wait it out?

I had dental work done and have been on pain killers for the past couple of weeks. Could this be causing the breakthrough bleeding?

Hi Marie,
I'm not real familiar with fibroids.......but maybe when he scratched you for the pap smear, he dug into part of the circulation of the fibroid? I guess I'm less concerned, since your pap was normal. Is it fresh-looking blood, or old stuff? If it's bright red, I think I would go back to the doctor. You also don't want to get anemic over the long run. If it's darker, old stuff, I don't think I'd worry about it and would probably give it another month. Good luck!
