perhaps like many of you I am having a bit of a freak out and just in need of some reassurance.
i had smear in sept, came back 'borderline'. I wasn't mega concerned. Was sent for a colpo as tested positive for high risk hpv. At colpo, she did a biopsy and thought she had got all the dodgy cells. 'See you in a year' she said. Not so. Now I have a follow up lletz for the 4th October (5 weeks after colpo) and it says that I have high grade CIN (which I believe means 3, unclear).
I don't understand how the results can differ so significantly. From borderline to high grade. What's that about? Is that common?
have to say also, since colpo and biopsy, sex has felt a little different. Like someone is touching a bruised bit of flesh inside (which I suppose they are!) has anyone experienced this and how long will it take to get over it if so?
i also feel a bit of pressure in my lower belly. I have literally just noticed this since I found out about the high grade changes so perhaps it's a touch psychosomatic. Started to worry i might have pelvic inflammatory disease or something. Just to top things off, you know.
any advice would be much appreciated.
