Hi everyone, I went for my first smear at 25 in August 2015 and it came back as high grade changes and to go for urgent colposcopy. Anyway went and they did a LLETZ via general anaesthetic (couldn’t “relax” during the colposcopy; well can anyone?!) And the results came back as CGIN with clear margins.
I had a test of cure in February 2016 and it came back all clear and HPV free, and this letter explained I could have routine 3 yearly smears
I have had some issues with pelvic pain and spotting so I was sent to have another colposcopy last month, I thought nothing of it and presumed it was to rule out the obvious given my history. When they were applying the chemicals they noticed a white patch but it was very faint but she didn’t think it was anything to worry about but she took a biopsy (she said these could be viral changes; but if I didn’t have HPV then how is this possible!)
Anyway I got the letter last week which shows CIN1 cells and I had to have a repeat colposcopy/biopsy in 6 months.
Gutting isn’t the word, genuinely thought that after my test of cure that would be the end of it!
Has anyone had a similar situation? I am worried this is going to happen all the time now but I was under the impression as I was HPV free that the CGIN was a one off?
Also could the colposcopist/test of cure missed this CIN1 change?
I’m considering seeing my GP but last time I went they said I knew more than they did
