Hey guys so after an excruciating 7 week wait I finally had my colposcopy on Monday after my last smear showing low grade dyskaryosis and HPV.
I broke down when I got to the hospital and cried for pretty much the entire examination. I won't lie, it was horrible! It wasn't exactly painful as it was uncomfortable but just the whole process was very, very upsetting. I felt violated, and two days on, I still feel completely traumatised.
First of all she said I had like white discharge and swabbed me for thrush and other STDs (nice), for the record I didn't notice any abnormal discharge before or since, get regular sexual health checkup and had no symptoms of thrush so really confused by this. I had been taking a medication to delay my period for a few days (norethistherone) so could be that maybe?
So after applying the solution on my cervix she couldn't see anything for ages then she did and took a biopsy (just one I believe). Afterwards I asked the nurse if she thought I had cancer she said "no I don't" then I asked her what she thought my results would show, she said "I'd expect you to be asked to come back in a year for a checkup".
Ok so, would she say that if she thought it was serious? She knew how upset I was and I'm scared she might've lied to reassure me.
I've had horrible, watery, browny discharge ever since the examination and period pain although pain has subsided a little.
I've been told I couldn't bathe for a couple days, do you think it's safe for me to do so today? I wanted a hot bath more than anything after the hospital and couldn't, so upsetting!
I'm really worried about getting my results. She also told me that the smear I had in December wasn't necessary as my last three smears had been normal and I wasn't due one until 2016 (I'd asked for one because I changed surgery and wasn't sure if I was due one or not)
