Hello, I had cold coagulation in April following a CIN 2 smear and will have my 6 month follow-up smear next week. I was not offered LLETZ, possibly because my colposcopy couldn’t find any abnormal cells after the smear. The good thing about cold coagulation for me was that it was over quickly, painless, I didn’t have any pain or bleeding after. My understanding is that it’s less invasive (for example may remove less millimetres than LLETZ). The bad thing is I have absolutely no idea what cells they removed. Once the cells are gone, they are gone, they can’t be extracted for testings. With LLETZ they can send the cells off to pathology and see if they got the bad cells and a clear margin. I don’t have that info so I’m really going into this smear blind.
