I am sincerely sorry if I have hurt your feelings. Obviously it would never be my intention to hurt anyone's feelings, and I am especially aware (of course!) of how upset and distressed people can be when they come onto this site. I can assure you that my intention was to try and help reassure you, and I am sorry if my answer came across as a bit clinical or sterile. It seemed from your post that your worry and anxiety was from the confusion that you were feeling about the medical aspect of things, and so I suppose I was trying to provide some clarity for you to help relieve your worry.
I'm going to mention some other medical stuff now, because I genuinely think it might help, so I hope it doesn't come across as too clinical! Just to say, the smear (and any other swabs you may have had done at the time) doesn't pick up all possible infections. it's possible that you've got an infection that hasn't been detected. Like you rightly say, it's also possible that you haven't got an infection at all, but they do need to eliminate that before they go any further. Also, I completely understand about you mentioning only having been with your partner for two years, but there are all sorts of infections we can get that have nothing to do with sexual contact and which can cause inflammation. Also, as far as I understand it, inflammation can sometimes cause little things like the polyp-type thing that you've got, and I think sometimes if they deal with the inflammation, the growth goes as well. Again, as you say, it might not be down to any of this and might be something else completely, but I just wanted to mention those things because I thought it might help with the confusion.
Please accept my apologies for upsetting you. I can assure you my intention on here would only ever be to help and reassure - sometimes it can be difficult when none of us know each other and you only have the written word and not the tone of voice to go on. I won't post on this thread again because I don't want to risk further upsetting you and I would hate to think I would be the cause of any distress to anyone, but I would like to wish you all the best and sincerely hope that you get everything resolved to your satisfaction.
