I manned up and went for my repeat smear today.
Last year I had a mild abnormality & positive test for hpv. Colpo but no treatment - confirmed mild and to attend yearly screenings.
Fell pregnant this year am currently 15 weeks and got my recall letter, was contemplating whether or not to go but after a chat with the nurse I went today.
Smear was painful, was questioned about amount of discharge (sorry tmi!) and also bled during the smear and am not afterwards (not heavy).
Has anyone had bleeding during/after a smear? Have your results been readable?
I had a completely irrational/emotional meltdown after the smear mainly due to bleeding and also probably due to getting myself in a state beforehand so I'm not sure if results are not readable I can do a repeat, at least not this side of the baby being born.
Would be MOST grateful for any experiences.
Thank you <3 xxx
