My girlfriend was diagnosed with cervical cancer about two years ago. She had all the treatments and was free for about one year. Suddenly about eight months ago, she began bleeding, and was told that the cancer had returned. She began the treatment all over again. Then the bleeding began in the back, bleeding from the rectum. She was told that she had 6months to live.

I was treated with normal skin treatment for candidiasis. Later when I started losing weight and having frequent bleeding during intercourse and irritation all around the stomach area, my doctor gave me the Pap test, which proven to be stage III cervical cancer.

I started bleeding after intercourse, but thought that my period had just started again. My periods got very painful, but I just took pamprin. After a while, that didn't help, and I started bleeding pretty heavily & more frequently. The pain in my abdomen was excruciating!!!!
