A little bit of history: I used to have regular periods until I got in my 20s. It was then that I started really gaining weight. After that, I would go for long periods without menstruating. I contributed this my obesity. When I started losing weight, my periods came back, but only temporarily. I haven't menstruated since the summer. On top of that, I was having some symptoms that disturbed me. I was having pain during intercourse and bleeding and pelvic pain afterwards. My aunt almost died from cervical cancer, so these symptoms scared me a lot. I finally went to the gyno Wednesday. She was extremely concerned about my lack of periods, and she also discovered that I have cervicitis. Although it could be just a bacterial infection and nothing more, cervicitis can also be a sign of cervical cancer. She was also concerned about me developing uterine cancer as a result of retaining a thickened uterine lining instead of menstruating. She also noted that had I had pain and tenderness on one side. I have a history of ovarian cysts and I could have another one. I am still waiting on my Pap results and I am hoping they come back normal. She gave me antibiotics for the cervicitis and Provera to induce me to have a period. I have to follow up, especially if I do not get a period within two weeks of finishing the Provera. I haven't scheduled a follow up appointment yet, and I am somewhat scared. Has anyone here had either cervicitis or amenorrhea? I could use some positive thoughts and friendly words right now!
