Pelvic discomfort

Last reply: 8 months ago

Hi, I've rang the Colposcopy Clinic and my recent smear is clear and I'm being discharged. I've to receive my letter in the coming days. I'm delighted but I've pelvic discomfort today, and on and off, in the last few weeks since my smear. I wonder should I go for a private smear to be 100% sure? Does anyone know where this can be done outside of Dublin?

Hi Fifil,

Thank you for posting on the online community.

I am glad to read that your recent smear has come back clear. It is important that you have the pelvic discomfort reviewed by your GP as it has been ongoing for a number of weeks. Your GP will be able to review your symptoms and advise about any further tests of treatment which you may need.

If you would like to speak to a nurse about this please contact the Support Line on 1800 200 700, Monday – Friday, 9am – 5pm.

Kind regards,

Cancer Nurse
