We all have little niggly pains here and there but there are some instances where there are symptoms that you should ensure that you get checked out by a GP to help rule out any more serious issues.

Tiredness

Often it’s natural to feel tired, but chronic exhaustion should not be disregarded. To see if there are any underlying causes of exhaustion felt all the time, your first port of call should be your GP to order a blood test. You may have depression, anaemia or hyperthyroidism.

Vaginal Bleeding

This can indicate any bleeding or spotting that is connected to a normal menstrual cycle that you don’t feel. Because of menopause or as a consequence of being on the contraceptive pill, spotting can occur, so if you experience bleeding during sexual intercourse, this could be a sign that your cervix is not all right. This may be due to a number of causes and not necessarily cervical cancer, but your GP needs to discuss it. It may also be a sign of an infection that is sexually transmitted. You can find Home STI kits Bexley from companies such asĀ  https://www.bexleysexualhealth.org/home_sti_kits/ that allow you to complete the tests from the comfort of your own home.

Bowel Habits Changes

Nobody wants to talk about going to the loo, so it should not be overlooked to note a difference in your bowel movements. For you, a shift is something that is odd, such as seeing blood in your stools, black tar-like stools, constant diarrhoea or very sudden urges to go to the bathroom. The signs of a bacterial or viral infection, irritable bowel syndrome or cancer may be such drastic changes.
