So I went for my smear yesterday (only a year overdue oops) to be told that I have cervical erosion and might bleed after the smear (I didn't) asked if I bleed after sex (I don't) apparently it's nothing to worry about but wondered if anyone has any experience of it? Apparently if it becomes a problem it can be quarterised (sp) but I'm so squeamish about anything 'down there' I think I'd struggle with that!! I daren't google as I've been doing that too much recently with my daughter's illness and it's too scary.

I had it in my second pregnancy but it hasn't materialised again since.

So it can come and go Pip? I really should have asked the nurse more about it but was feeling queasy after the smear so wanted to get out of there!

Well it hasn't been mentioned to me since although when I was pregnant with J it was possible that's why I had early bleeding. I don't suffer with it now though. Well not yet!

Thanks Pip. I had no idea I'd got it until nurse said yesterday so I'm guessing it's fine and will hopefully just disappear!

I had this when i was on the pill before having the babies. From googling before i seem to recall that if you're on the pill it can be quite common.

I'm not on the pill, haven't been for at least 6 months.

I've never had the pill so it might be a risk factor but not the only reason.

I've got one that's given me bother on and off. I do tend to bleed after smear tests and sometimes after sex. It's not painful though, was only worrying when it caused some bleeding in my first pregnancy.

Thanks Malteser, it's reassuring to know it's nothing to worry about.

I have it and it means I bled after sex... not a problem at the moment!

It's strange I don't bleed then by the sounds of it. Thanks QI
