Just hoping for some reassurance from any ladies who've possibly been through a similar experience.
Last year I had my first smear at age 25 and it came back abnormal and positive for HPV. I had colposcopy and biopsy which came back as CIN1. No treatment was done as they hoped it would go away on it's own.
Returned to colp this year after several visits to GP as I've been regularly bleeding after intercourse with my boyfriend. Colposcopy and biopsy done again on 5th August - now confirmed as having progressed to CIN2 and I am booked in to have LLETZ on 12th September. I'm terrified about the risk to my fertility as I don't have any children yet but would desperately want a baby in the future.
I know that it's important to have the treatment to prevent the cells causing cancer, but when I read about some of the risks I just feel helpless.
I have a very religious family and my mum has made me feel like I've brought this on myself by contracting HPV. Just need someone to reassure me that this isn't my fault :(
