I hope you’re well (as much as we can be in the present day and age!!)!
I haven’t been on here for years, but I’m back now as I’ve just received some news this morning: CIN2+HPV. I’ve had a LLETZ 6 years ago for CIN2 and have since been clear (including a clear smear test in January this year), but it’s back now.
I have a new partner who has recently found that he had a lesion on his penis and it turned out that this was also HPV-related and there is increased cancer risk for him. He has now had his foreskin removed to reduce risk – we have a follow-up appointment regarding this in November.
I’m worried that I will have to have another LLETZ because of the cell changes. My previous LLETZ 6 years ago and its aftermath were difficult experiences. Also, we are currently being referred for fertility treatment, and I am worried this diagnosis (and possible treatment) will impact this.
I am in a complicated situation, and I was hoping any of you may have some wisdom and/or experiences to share as I’m quite overwhelmed with all these medical problems at the moment.
Thank you and stay safe!
