I want to start by saying I am a GIANT baby and HATE Smear tests!!!
I've given birth twice and they still are my least favorite exam.
When I was pregnant they told me I had abnormal cells and had to wait until after
she was born to get a Colposcopy. The female doctor explained she was going to put a vinegar type solluction on my cervix
that will show any abnormal cells to take a biopsy. I barely felt the exam.
She told me everything was fine and follow up with a pap in 6 months , then we waited a year.
I pushed off my yearly busy and stuff. Well this time I was at a different clinic and they found abnormal cells back during my Pap.
The doctor say's good news You don't have HPV but bad news there is Pre cancer.
Ordered a Colposcopy, this time it was SUPER painful because I had an IUD inserted 2 years prior
and I think it was infected.
So after that I had to get a Chryo which is a Freezing of the Cervix to hopefully get all the bad cells.
I go back in a month to get checked and see if it's all gone. Hoping for the best.
Worried of course. Glad Jo's Trust is here!!!
We need more awareness in the states! I never thought this could happen to me until I was diagnosed.
