Wasnt really sure where to put this so hope its ok here.
Ive been looking online for information on the pill and cervical annormalities but found a lot of conflicting information so thought I would ask here if anyone knows if there are any links?
Ive been wondering about it because of my own history. I have been on the pill since I was 18. Back then it was the combined pill. At 24, i was experiencing a lot of breakthrough bleeding with the pill I was on and had my first smear and switched to cerazette (mini-pill). That smear was clear and after switching pills, I didnt experience any more bleeding. Fast forward to my smear at 28 which was CIN 1 and I was asked to return in 6 months for a follow up smear. At this point I started working on a away from home and found taking the pill impossible to remember with my schedule so I just stopped taking it. My follow up smear was all clear but I was asked to have a follow up in 12 months. I then went back on the pill as I had a boyfriend... had my follow up after 8 months which came back borderline after being on the pill again.
So basically, in my head, im making a link and I dont know how justified the link is. I now know I also have hr hpv but for some reason I feel like its not at the heart of my issues... I dont know... I guess I just keep thinking about this and needed to get it out there.
