My second (ever) Smear Test was due in January but I was pregnant at the time, so I had it last week (my baby is 4 months old now).
I received a letter yesterday stating that my result has shown 'borderline changes' and then further tested positive for HPV. I have a Colposcopy appointment next week.
Of course, I am worrying..! I know 'borderline changes' are the very earliest/mildest changes, usuallu got back to normal on their own etc..; and that the Colposcopy referral is because of the positive HPV test... but I'm thinking way too much into everything... like how quickly they have got me into Colposcopy and also other symptoms I've been having such as spotting between periods and pain during intercourse.
My rational head head is telling me that everything will probably be fine, but I'm also finding it hard to be rational....!
Any experiences or advice would be greatly appreciated, and also any insight into what will happen at the Colposcopy appointment (will there be any discussion about my Smear result/other symptoms, or just straight in for the examination? Will I be able to see the screen? Will they tell me what they can see/what they think..?)
Thank you very much :-)
