Hi, I have just joined this forum as before my colposcopy I found it quite calming!
I went for my smear back in July and the results came back CIN 1 with HPV (31st July - results). I was then referred for a colposcopy which was today. I have found the whole thing a worry more than painful, and the HCA I had in with me was lovely & kept me calm. The nurse who examined me at first said that my cervix looks healthy (As did the nurse who did my smear) but today I was told that they think I have high grade not low grade. I'm confused as to why this wasnt picked up in the first instance. She said she wanted to be sure though and rather than treat, she took 2 biopsies and said I should recieve my results in 4 weeks. Should I be worried, as I have read that people who get high grade results back from a smear are usually asked to go in within 1-2 weeks?
Has this happened to anybody else?
