I'm fairly sure I'm just scaring myself, do some advice and reassurance would be lovely please.
I'm 25, and had the results of my first smear through yesterday: borderline cells with no evidence of HPV, and my next smear isn't until 2018.
Naturally, the "borderline" part scared me a bit, but I tried to focus on the fact that the HPV is negative and that means I'm not at a high risk.
The things that have been playing on my mind:
1) I know I have had HPV, when I was 18, as it came to light when I had a screen at the GUM clinic. Would this affect my chances of these changes becoming moderate or severe In a few years time?
2) (APOLOGIES FOR THE TMI!) A few weeks before my smear, I noticed some red blood for a few days after having intercourse, for a few weeks, which isn't normal for me as I have had a mirena coil fitted for 3 years and have rarely experienced more than a few drops of spotting every few months.
Can an somebody please calm me down?
