I did end up going to my gyno as it got a little bit worse, on Monday. It got to a point where was having "mini periods" after sex-- fresh bleeding that would last overnight. Troubling!
It started to worry me, but after taking a look, my doctor said it was nothing serious. Somehow I just had a little sore spot/scrape (first time ever) on my cervix. So he treated it with silver nitrate and told me to avoid sex until after my next period (which is soon- yay!)
I had some spotting.. a little black/grey stuff (silver nitrate) and a little blood. I thought nothing of it until it started to get a little heavier, and once again I've had to deal with moderate bleeding for a few days in a row. I think now the bleeding has reduced to spotting, but pretty much every time I go to the bathroom or something, bits of grey/silver material show up. It feels kinda yucky :(
I'm just curious to see if any of you have had experiences with silver nitrate. I imagine this isn't abnormal but I'm not sure, and my doctor didn't say anything about it..
Also, since I've had to deal with all of this I've been wearing pads a lot. I also have very sensitive skin, so I've started to get really irritated down below from it (like a diaper rash or something, ugh). Any advice on a good way to soothe it or reduce further irritation?
