I'm 29, married and with one son, who just turned 2 years. Prior to my son's 2nd birthday, I had my DNC/ fractional curettage. My OB had my tissue/cell under biopsy. It was found out that I have cervical cancer. I have no symptoms, no discharge, and no bleeding or even pains. My only fear for this moment in time is about financial worries. I'm very positive about my remission. I believe in God, I believe in technology.

Well I find when I exercise that I sometimes bleed from my vagina, I also have been known to bleed when I am under a lot of stress. My doctor has booked me in for a pap smear to find out what could be wrong. So if you guys would have any idea what it might be, I would be really happy to hear what you might think it could be.
