I just got my results back from my colposcopy and I do not really understand them, so I wanted to ask for you help. I will definitely try to get in contact with my OBGYN to ask more, but the more information I can get, the better.
So I got an abnormal pap last year at my first pap smear in my life, at age 30. Since it also came back HPV positive, they did a colposcopy. That showed that I only had mild dysplasia, so thy asked me to come back in a year and see if my body had cleared it.
This month I went back, and again my pap said abnormal (ASCUS) and HPV positive. So I went in for another colposcopy. This time she took 2 biopsies: 1 from inside my cervix and 1 outside (I don’t know where that exactly was taken from, but that is what she said).
Now my result came back through my digital web portal and they say:
- Specimen 1 L: HPV effect exocervix
- Specimen 2 L: benign endocervical glands
So I have no idea what this means… they took a weird looking spot out of me and turned out it was just gland? :-p What kind of gland is this? And what is this “effect”? It does not say anything about CIN 1/2/3 or mild/moderate/severe or something I would understand. The advice is to, yet again, come back in a year, but I am confused about what exactly they found…
So, any clarification would be appreciated!
