I’m 27 years old and had an abnormal smear in September showing low grade cell changes and HPV. I was referred for a colposcopy where I had a biopsy. The biopsy results came back showing CIN2, and I was referred for another colposcopy last week. At this appointment I spoke with a consultant, who explained that because I’m young and haven’t had any children, they did not want to treat the CIN2 at this stage, but suggested to come back for another colposcopy in 6 months time. She explained that the cells may return to normal on their own, even if they are CIN2, and if not, they could treat me at my next colposcopy.
I want to trust their professional opinion, but part of my just wants the cells removed as I’m worried that it will progress to CIN3 (or worse). Has this happened to anyone else before? Did you request a second opinion? I’d love to hear your experiences of being told you have CIN2 but not being offered treatment straight away.
