    Could I have cervical cancer. I'm really scared.

    I haven't had my period for six months now. It's not irregular period because my period used to be like clockwork. Then one month I didn't get it. I shrugged it off because it was only one month and it might have been stress. Then there was one week while my boyfriend and I were having sex that I would always just start bleeding during. It was really strange. There were also be some mild pelvic pain. I've had an excess of discharge over the past few months that has a strange odor. Also, the pelvic plain has been increasingly worse. And just the other day, I wiped and my discharge was brown and that really got me worried. I'm working on finding a doctor who takes me insurance, but until then, any ideas?
