Hi everyone. I am new to this site, and wondering a few things. Here is my story:
In August of 2012 I had a routine pap smear it was approx 6 months late due to starting a new job
and waiting for new insurance to kick in. Then I also had to find a new GYN and Doctor. I found a regualar Dr first.
She was willing to do my pap. Never got any reslutls. In October Nov and Dec I had abnormal bleeding, January was also abnormal
but this was the first (and not the last) time I bleed from having sex. My bed looked like a murder scene. I started
my period 4 days later. Found an actual GYN and thats when I found out my pap in August 2012 was abnormal. She did
ultrasound, that was neg, she did HPV that was positive for high risk. She also check for all STD's or STI's possible. Everything
was negative. During the colposcopy I bleed extremly bad it took her a good 30mins to stop the bleeding. She said the cells
looked to her like moderate to severe dysplagia. The lab report showed only one area of mild, the rest was negative
for dysplagia. I continue to have abnormal bleeding every month and bleed during sex (not always, but often).
My first abnormal pap was an ASCUS results. I went back for another pap on February 2013 and this one was again abnormal
this time with a LSIL-H which is not a common abnormality but its more severe that LSIl and just under HSIL. (from what
I have read) Anyway, during the pap/pelvic exam I was in a lot of pain when she pressed on my pelvis. Yes, that is always
uncomfortable for most women, me included. well the year before when she did a pelvic it was more tender than usual
this time it down right hurt! I have noticed since then that I have constant pelvic cramping. sometimes more somtimes less
Honestly, it is probably something I may have never noticed until that pelvic exam. I was scheduled this week for another Colp
but I had to reschedule and now I go back on April 2nd.
I am wondering to anyone that has been diagnosed with CC when the results came back with an abnormal pap, what was
the diagnostic abnormaily on the pap? My first was ASCUS and my second was LSIL-H.
Also, How many abnormal paps did you have before the diagnosis of CC?
Did the CC really take years to turn into cancer like everything I have read says, or did it happen faily quickly?
I am just extremly nervous since this is going to be my second colposcopy in a year. and its my second abnormal pap in
