So today I got my biopsy results that I have CIN 1 and High risk HPV which reflects the smear I recieved and that they are not going to treat at this stage, when I went for my colposcopy the consultant said she thought it would be 50/50 whether I needed treatment, as the area was slightly larger than she thought. Although I am so glad they have not found any cancer or serious disease, I am concerned about the time I am waiting for my follow up smear just in case it doesn't clear, NHS sites and all my friends who were diagnosed with CIN 1 have had 6 monthly smears. However they are only repeating mine in 12 months time, this doesn't seem right that I have to wait an extra 6 months to get my smear repeated. Does it depend what hospital you are at?? I rang my doctors and they were less than helpful when I asked them why I was only being checked 12 monthly and not 6, like some others I know who have same diagnosis.
Unfortunately I had infections after my biospy and now on 3 antibiotics as I have been bleeding and have discoloured discharge for three weeks, so kinda glad I am not having to have treatment at the moment.
Any info on this will be much appreciated!
