Had first smear about 5 years after I should have - bad I know!
Came back with high grade hpv and borderline changes. Had colposcopy, consultant said I looked fine visually and to wait for biopsy. Biopsy detected c1n1 which he said to come back in 6 months for repeat smear. Just had results from that. Wording has changed from borderline to dyskaryosis? Does this mean the same thing? Other than that the wording seems exactly the same. Hpv positive low grade have colposcopy.
Since my last colposcopy my periods got REALLY heavy. I'm now having to take ibuprofen for first 3 days which seems to help and although not painful as such, sex does leave me feeling sore. The nurse didn't seem bothered since my period is regular, suggested I had made up the quantity increase and said the sex part isn't an issue if I'm not bleeding.
I'm just concerned that having repeat colposcopys is causing more harm than good.
I'm hoping it will just come back saying the same thing as last time but if it does I'm reluctant to go for another smear in another 6 months.
I feel like I have no information at all and no one really knows what happens next. I read someone in a forum saying she had c1n1 and felt in limbo.
I havent had kids yet and it's got me terrified thinking A - I'm going to get cancer, B - do I already HAVE cancer, C - we won't be able to have kids!
Can anyone give me some advice or relate at all?
