For months now, I've been getting little solid bits in my discharge. Usually they look brownish against the paper but if I hold them with my fingers they're actually white. I figured they were dried mucus - I've had ridiculous amounts of discharge for months now, too, which I wrote off as misfiring hormones (I carry around at least one big ovarian cyst at all times) as my skin is a disaster and my boobs ALWAYS HURT.
But for a while - and this went away but now it's back - there were tiny bits that looked like scabs. Really hard and dark brown in spots, white in others. This concerns me.
My first fear is malignancy, but I was just at the GYN a few months ago for a cyst check (holding steady at 5 cm!) and pap (since I was there and about due). The pap came back normal (I assume, I actually never did hear back. But they're very on the ball about reporting abnormal results; the one time I did have an abonrmal pap the doctor called me himself. Otherwise I usually have to pester them to find out. I guess I should call and make absolutely sure.)
So I feel like a clear pap and largely clear transvaginal ultrasound means my possibility of cervical, uterine, ovarian, whatever-else-can-go-wrong cancers are fairly low right now. But PLEASE correct me if I'm wrong because I've been sitting on this for the better part of a year and if I need to see a doctor right away, I'll get on that. And yes, I should've told him about this issue when I was there, but I was having some really concerning symptoms surrounding the cyst and it just slipped my mind.
I have no STDs; I'm in a monogamous relationship with the same person I've been with for almost 5 years, my only sexual partner, and with the exception of HPV a few years ago, I've never had anything show up on tests. My period just ended a day or two ago.
I worry about this but I have no idea if I need to, because no one else on the internet seems to have had a similar experience. Help?
