Friable Cervix - Anyone Know Anything About It?

10 posts in this topic

Hey guys,

I'm always able to turn here for advice on Celiac/gluten issues but I'm hoping someone could provide me with some advice for this.

I went for my yearly physical w/Pap and all yesterday, and during the exam my GP mentioned that my cervix was bleeding, that it's 'friable'. I'm nowhere near my period (and I'm on the pill) so it's not that.

She seemed concerned and said we'll wait and see what the Pap results are but she's going to send me to a specialist.

Has anyone else had this? I can't look on the internet because it freaks me out - cervical cancer/HPV and everything.

Help?!? :(

I know that chlamydia can cause the cervix to bleed and is easily treated. Now you don't have to worry about cancer, just a cheating significant other ha ha. I have also been told by my medical professional that it is normal to bleed after a pap test. I hope you get your results soon so that you can stop worrying.

I would find it hard to believe if it was chlamydia.

I've had the same BF for 6 years - we were each others' first and only. Never been apart.

Is chlamydia a possibility if you've only had one partner??

Friable just means "easily irritated and prone to bleeding". Why this is often associated with Std's, some people are just made this way.

I have bled every pap smear I've ever had. I have an easily irritated cervix that is prone to bleeding if you so much as give it a stern look. When I was younger I used to bleed every time I had sex, which is totally freaky. But seriously, yes this is sometimes an indicator of something more serious and sometimes its absolutely nothing at all. Calm down, wait for the test results, and go from there.

That's good to know, so it may be nothing at all.

Problem with me is, I've had a pap smear before and the exam and results were normal - no bleeding.

Also I've never bled after intercourse. This is all news to me.

Shouldn't be. Very romantic. Lucky you. Could just be from the pap, unless it was bleeding before.

I'm pretty sure it was bleeding before.

I went for the Pap last week and it was bleeding, so she figured it might still be my period so we rescheduled it to yesterday. Still bleeding.

It's hard not to think the worst when I don't know anything about it.

At this point, from what I've researched and from what you guys said, it seems like it could only be either:

-Chlamydia (I think its unlikely, unless my BF has cheated but I highly doubt it)

-Cervicitus/HPV/Abnormal cells/Cervical cancer

-Just really sensitive

Not sure. Just very worried.

It may be nothing at all. So dont worry. Wait for the results.

My cervix used to bleed at the drop of a hat. And I did end up having HPV (everyone who has ever had sex has at least a few strains). But I had 2 of the strains associated with Cervical Cancer. And I had pre-cancerous cells.

I refused invasive/mutilating surgery (LEEP) and went the natural route. I used a product called Beta-mannon

http://best-hpv-treatment.org/modules/best...CFSCysgod_CKHYQ

I took it orally and vaginally. And get this, I was so broke when I had this, that I called the company and they gave me 6 weeks of the supplement absolutely FREE. I didnt pay a dime.

PLUS everyday I used positive visualization. I saw those cells being eaten away by the little pac-men.

6 weeks later, I was completely healed.

My cervix has not bleed since. Not for sex or a PAP. All healed and I have been getting PAPS twice a year for the past 7 years. No return of bleeding or bad cells. :)

Thanks so much Shay, you're always so encouraging :)

I understand that if it is indeed pre-cancerous/cervical cancer that it is very treatable and many people live on their lives without it every reappearing.

I guess I'm just concerned because I'm only 20 - I haven't even had kids yet. And I want to someday. I don't want anything to get in the way of that.

Again, thanks for your encouraging post :)

If you do have it, dont let them pressure you into LEEP (can cause complications) until you fully research your options.
