I am new today and I’m sure this might have been asked before … but, I have a smear test result showing low grade dyskaryosis and the lab has tested my sample for HPV infection … result positive (although the strain has not been confirmed in my letter)
I am to receive a colposcopy appointment within three weeks and that is all I have been told.
I am feeling very edgy about all this, as I was widowed six years ago and have two young sons, I was also seriously ill with meningioencephalitis three years ago, so any threat to my health feels pretty drastic.
I have a new partner and am now totally confused as to did he pass this to me? Did I already have it and might possibly have passed it to him?
My smear test three years ago was normal … could I have had HPV and not known because the HPV test wasn’t taken due to smear being normal? Or have I more likely become infected during the last three years?
And really is any of that relevant and it should just be a case of dealing with what comes next?
