I feel abit silly having to ask this, but I can't function properly at the moment as I'm overwhelmed with worry :( If anyone can please answer me any of these questions I would be so grateful!
First of all, I will just explain.. I totally blame myself for not attending my smear when I was 25, at 26 I fell pregnant and now I'm 28 and had my 1st smear 2 days ago.
I have suddenly started having irregular periods and feeling really tired all the time, I've stupidly turned to Google and have now convinced myself due to my pwn stupidity I now have cervical cancer. I'm sure I'm suffering with some sort of anxiety problem also as I've literally cried every day for the past 2 weeks thinking I'm going to have to leave my son behind because I'm a selfish idiot.
Anyhow, I am now awaiting the results of my smear. Please can anyone advise me of the following;
If the results come back as borderline or lowgrade changes what happens next?
If the results come back as moderate or severe dyskaryosis and I'm sent for a colposcopy, if I have treatment there and then to remove the abnormal cells does this mean I am clear? I'm confused as I thought the colposcopy was to take a sample of your cervix for it to be sent off for testing. SO basically what I mean is if the treatment is done there and then to remove the abnormal cells, could the results from the removed stuff still come back to say I have cervical cancer?
Sorry this is so long winded, I just don't know where else to turn, I feel so emotional and I feel selfish to even post this on here as I know woman are going through much worse than myself :( Any info would be gratefully received.
