My name is Meg, I turned 22 two weeks ago and i’m new to this group.
Last week I had a Colposcopy because I’ve been having problems with my cervix. In May when I was on holiday with my boyfriend I experience a lot of bleeding after sex, multiple times and would get the worst tummy cramps. I went to the doctors as soon as I was home, had an examination and was referred to see a gynaecologist and have an ultra sound to look inside. The ultra sound was clear, and when I saw the gynaecologist she could see some blood on the cervix, but after a long chat with her consaultant, she only referred me to have a Colposcopy as a ‘really over the top‘ precaution in her words. Whilst waiting for my appointment I was still having a lot of problems with sex, and even threw up after it once because the pain was too much.
I went for my Colposcopy 5 days ago, I ended up having a few biopsys and got really unexpected news that I have High Grade cell changes and the cancer word came in.
I was already pretty traumatised with the colposcopy and then to hear that was a big ordeal. I know high grade changes doesn’t necessarily mean cancer, but I honestly can’t stop thinking of the worst. My anxiety has been through the roof. The consaultant at the Colposcopy said he has sent them off as urgent and I should get result in 2 weeks.
i just can’t believe I’m 22 and having to worry about this. I’m just so relieved that I managed to get a Colposcopy and forced my self to go. If Anyone is able to shed any light I would be so grateful, im finding the whole situation very stressful.
