    I just went for a smear and was told by the nurse that I have some small red bumps on my cervix and she didn't know what they were. I always have problems with my cervix being raw and irritated (think it's due to the pill) and recurrent thrush and bacterial vaginosis. I went for a colposcopy last year due to an abnormal smear and the Dr reckoned it was due to 'infection' but he didn't say what. I'm really paranoid now, especially as I read online that herpes can present as red spots on the cervix! I don't see how it could be that or any other STD - I always use condoms, my ex nor my BF have any symptoms and my bf was tested in January and given the all clear. I think I'd be really, really unlucky if this was an STD but I don't understand what it could be! Any ideas? My GP suggested it could be blood spots caused by cervical erosion due to the pill but she didn't seem to really know.

    If your GP doesn't know, chances are none of us are going to know. If she doesn't seem really concerned about them - then I wouldn't worry. Of course, if they're causing you discomfort then you should go back to your GP. And don't forget, you are always entitled to a second opinion.

    If the GP doesnt know, perhaps a GUM clinic or a GYN will be able to help. I dont think it is an STI but chances are the GUM has seen it and will know what it is as they play with gentials all day.

    Couldn't it be HPV?
