embarrassing question

  1. I haven't started my nursing program yet, so I have an excuse for my lack of knowledge! LOL..

    I am not, let me repeat loud and clear NOT asking for medical advice. I am just curious about something.

    Last year I went in for my yearly exam. It seems that I have scar tissue over the opening of my cervix from a proceedure I had done about 10 years ago. When I went in the first time for my pap, they said that I had a growth covering my cervix and asked me to schedule an appointment with the head gyn. When I went in to see him, he told me that scar tissue had grown over the opening of my cervix. Here is my question. (Please don't laugh) If there is scar tissue over the opening of the cervix, how can blood from a menstrual period get out?

    I have been on the depo shot, so I dont have periods. My girlfriend and I were discussing it and can't seem to figure out how that would work!

    This is really a question that you should have asked your doc. Your best bet is to simply ask him/her.

    That is a question best answered by the medical professional who diagnosed and treated you. Please call your GYN with any concerns about your body or its functioning.

    Good luck to you.
