Hey everyone. I'm 24 and my first smear test has come back abnormal. I have been bleeding after inter course (with no pain at all) for over a year. Last year my GP just did a swab which i thought was a smear (ended up being a test for STI's, even though I've been with my boyfriend for over four years) this obviously came back negative and nothing was followed up and I just thought it was my pill causing it. After recent conversations with my doctor before my smear results I've discovered my discharge hasn't always been normal either.
I found out my results were abnormal when the nurse from my GP rang me and told me i would need an urgent hospital referral for colposcopy. Since then I've had a letter from the lab that tested my cells saying my results were abnormal (no other details) and then another letter for my colposcopy appt again just saying 'abnormal'.
Between this the nurse who informed me that I would need a colposcopy rang me to see if I was ok and had my appointment sorted for the colposcopy which worried me slightly that they were chasing it up.
I had my colposcopy on 2nd July and was very nervous. The doctor told me beforehand that my smear results showed I had endocervical abnormalities which are up inside the cervix (I think? I wish someone came in with me to listen as I was so nervous I can't remember much!) she drew me a picture and everything!
I then had the colposcopy and saw my cervix on screen. When the solution was applied there was a large white area around the entrance to my cervix so she informed me I also had abnormal cells on the outer. She then took a biopsy and told me that she wanted to wait for that result before going ahead with the Lletz diathermy treatment. She also mentioned that they may have to go deeper with treatment and mentioned fertility etc but again I can't remember too well what was said.
Has anyone else experienced or had this? I also find it strange that my letters never explained what my cells were or how high/low grade they were.
Many thanks for reading :)
