Not sure if anyone knows the answer.
I had my first abnormal smear for the first time and aged 41, the result also showed HPV infection so I was refered for colopscopy.
That showed a very tiny bit of white and they did a biopsy.
I have just had the result back and it says the cells showed only minor changes and viral infection (HPV) and return to my GP for smear in 3 years.
I was really surprised by this as was expecting a follow up appointment in 6 months or so, i'm now a bit worried that 3 years seems too long especially as I have the HPV infection.
Has anyone else had this result?
For anyone who was referred for same reason, just wanted to say the biopsy itself didnt hurt. I have been stressing over the HPV virus more than anything else so have changed my lifestyle. I have been reading up and building the immune system is key to getting rid of the virus, so vitamins A,C,E,D and Zinc.
Does anything think its weird to go back in 3 years for routine smear test after this result? I'm sure they know what they are doing just wanted some advise.
