I know its way easier said than done- but dont worry!
I am 25 too, had my first smear in June and got a call a week later to ask if i could go to hospital for a Colposcopy as they had found severe abnormalities! Honestly- it was terrifying to hear and so many things run through your head! I have a little girl who is coming up to 2, and i just felt sick thinking about her.
I also tried to re book it, as i had started my period and heard that the procedure couldnt be done during- but when i rang they said,
"Under your circumstances we need you to come in no matter what happens". Which honestly terrified me even more!
When i had the colposcopy the doctor told me there were cells that needed to be removed and i had the LEEP procedure instantly.
I had a local anaesthetic, and it literally took about 3 minutes for them to be removed. Afterwards just felt like i was having a bad period, and then i had to wait for my results again as the cells were being sent to the lab for a biopsy. When i got the results 3 weeks later they said the cells were CIN 1 and 2, and there were no signs of cancer.
You just have to think about how positive it is that youre being looked after so quickly, so that if there was anything that needed looking at it would be taken care of.
It is a huge worry thinking about this- i think more so because people dont talk about it enough- i hadnt even heard of a colposcopy before all this happened!!
i hope everything goes well for you- and im sure it will! Remember you always have people to talk to xxxxx
