This is sort of my experience but also asking for advice about waiting between screenings.
In January I had a Colposcopy for High Grade Dyskaryosis and had the Lletz treatment the same day. The results came back as CIN 3 but said there was nothing more abnormal and that I have been put back into the care of my GP.
When I had a follow up in July it showed no abnormal cells but HPV present, in my first screening they never tested me for HPV but I was told that this time they had changed the way they do screenings to check for HPV first. Obviously I was then horrified as I googled more about HPV and what it could mean. I was referred for another Colposcopy and I had to visit my GP to ask why, and she said it was procedure because I was at high risk.
At my Colposcopy 5 weeks later I was told they have found nothing abnormal and nothing to even warrant a biopsy and I was put back onto a 3 year wait.
I am ofcourse relieved and know I am so lucky. However being a worrier and reading about high risk HPV I am concerned that 3 years is quite a long time and I thought at best it would have been 1?
Anyone had a similar experience? I am expecting things must be changing with the changes of how the do the screenings
