A few weeks ago i was having a coil fitted (trying to control very heavy periods). They did a smear at same time & was shocked to get letter saying I was CIN3 and HPV positive. Got sent for colposcopy within 5 days of letter. They said I have the specific strain of HPV that is cancer causing and 'significant' area of high grade abnormalities. They took a biopsy but wouldnt do any treatment until results back. A four week wait and I'm a bag of nerves. I am blaming myself as I had abnormal cells removed 6 years ago but was pregnant at time of recall for smear and didn't go (I had miscarried in the previous year and was scared the smear might bring another one on - stupid I know but was rather irrational at the time!) Anyway I put off my smears after that and now I'm in this situation. If it was cancer would they have been able to tell just by looking during the colposcopy? And if the biopsy comes back ok and they do LLETZ - do they send more cells off? Could they then find something at that point???
I'm bleeding constantly and feeling tired and faint (dr said low blood pressure) but all the worry is making me ill. Worried that even if biopsy ok that won't be 100% all clear and I'll have to wait till results of LLETZ too. Any one been through similar? X
