I am a 22 year old woman with depression, anxiety, PTSD, and HPV. I am in therapy and I also take antidepressants. I also take birth control pills and loratadine for allergies. I am a non smoker. Occassional drinker. I do not know my family or family medical history. I have had dysplasia for a couple years now. I have had a couple biopsies done, and have been having problems bleeding during and after vaginal penetration for several years now. My doctor has found no explanation, which worries and bothers me tremendously. Others symptoms I have been displaying are; night sweats, stomach pain after eating, sleepiness, itchy bumps on my ankle and top of foot, headaches, difficulty focusing. I imagine that not everything I significant, but I am hoping that perhaps giving this detailed info will help me find a diagnosis. My doc has checked to make sure I healed from my biopsy and even changed bc pills. After several years of this bleeding, I would appreciate any insight, recommendations, or suggestions. Please help. Anything is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

  • Re: PTSDThere is some research going on with ketamine, an anesthetic, which will help erase traumatic events when given during hypnosis. This drug has been used by veterinarians and unfortunately abused by kids, but when administered by an anesthetist, can help in PTSD.

  • I appreciate that, but what is it? I am most concerned with the bleeding after penetration. I've stopped having sex. It's been frustrating and I've been seen by several dr.s and had an ultrasound and everything. Thanks though.

  • Are the bumps on your shins. Painful red? Look up erythema nodosum.

  • This can be a sign of cervical cancer. I would ask you doc for additional testing, and if he says no, get a second opinion asap. It only gets worse w/o treatment.
