23 years old and 6 sexual partners?

Postby cidro » Tue Sep 06, 2011 10:16 pm

Hi there,

I am a little worried so hope you can help. I am 23 years old and I have had 6 sexual partners and I am on the contracteptive pill.
I am worried as I have had a few light cramps over the past few weeks in my lower abdomon like menstual like cramps. I have no discharge, no bleeding, no smelly discharge or pain when i have sex.
Just light cramps.
I am worried and have read up on cervical cancer but only have light cramps and not the other symptoms.
I am 23 years old so dont qualify for a smear. Do you think I will be ok?

It may mean that your menses are coming.. Its a case for me, i always have light cramps for a week before my menses.. I'm 23 too by the way, but only 1 partner.. I've read about how more sexual partners can increase the chances, so best if you will decrease your number of sex partners..

Actually, you do qualify for a pap smear; you're over 18 and sexually active. I would definitely consider having it done since it is your health after all.
