I'm booked in for a cone bioposy next week following abnormal smear test result showing severe changes in the glandular cells. My previous smear test (3.5 - 4 years ago) was fine, so this result has been a big shock to me.
My younger sister has just turned 24, so won't be eligible for a smear test for another year but I was wondering if she would be able to ask for one now on the basis that I have severe abnormalities - or do they not take this into account?
The reason why I'm asking is that in the last couple of years she has been having really heavy periods and some bleeding between periods. Between my last normal smear and the abnormal result, the only change I can think of is that I have also been having really heavy periods. So far our GP has kind of dismissed these symptoms as being "hormonal changes" and asking her to wait and see what happens, but now I wonder if it would be more sensible for her to get checked out.
Thanks in advance for your help!
