I am a 43 year old woman who has never had an “abnormal” pap smear. I am also 8 years post menopause. There were no apparent health reasons for my early menopause but it does run in my family. I had a pap done in October of 2013 that was normal and one done in December of 2015. My pap came back “abnormal” with atypical squamous cells. I was also tested for HPV which came back positive for HPV 18. My doctor’s office called with my results within a week and scheduled my for a colposcopy on Jan 25th (one month from positive results). However my doctor’s office just called today to cancel my colposcopy and wants to see me sooner to discuss “treatment options”. Has this ever happened to anyone? I have had symptoms such as spotting,(especially after intercourse), pain during intercourse and pelvic and lower back pain. These symptoms can also be menopause related. I did ask the MA if I should be worried and she hesitated with saying “Don’t worry too much but I suggest you keep this appointment”.
Another thing…My results read negative for epithelial lesions and malignancy, Other
Any help or advice will be GREATLY APPRECIATed
